  1. I am a 64 year old causcasion, college educated, native Virginian, retired state employee, who has mostly been a Republican. However, there is nothing that would EVER cause me to vote again for Jim Gilmore. I served under him and I know what he can do and how he is. I will reserve my comments on this blog so as not to incriminate myself. I guess it is appropriate that channel 12 is showing him for what he is!!

  2. Dear Americans,

    We would not need any petitions IF OUR CONGRESS and SENATE (employees) DID THEIR JOB.

    I would like to see every American demand an immediate replacement of every Congress Representative and Senator and DEMAND TERM LIMITS and allow any President the power to Line Item Veto with no recourse of overriding a President’s veto by our Congress or Senate.

    What we don’t need, is anyone that has been in public office before in any capacity. We need fresh new faces with new ideas and people who are for the citizens of America and for what America once stood for.

    We do not need any politicians who “cater” to self-interest groups, or pass legislations based on “political correctness”, or refuse to protect our borders with a fence, or will not resend the NAFTA Agreement that has cause the loss of millions of American jobs. Nor do we need someone in office who will not stop the outsourcing of American jobs, such as our FAA allowing Airlines to outsource (out of the USA) airplane maintenance.

    WE DO NEED someone in office that will pass a bill for Balance Budget, support Term Limits, allow Line Item Vetoes and will STOP STEALING FROM OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM AND START PAYING THE FUNDS STOLEN BACK.

    Each of us has to work within our budgets everyday. So what right does our Congress and Senate have by not having a balance budget? What right do they have to “earmark” (pork) or “appropriate” funds that are not within the budget guidelines? If it is not in the guidelines they pass a Bill so any action they do is legal. It is just that simple. If they want something, they just make up a law and stuff it deep in a bill not related to the issue, and force the President to sign. This is why they do not want the President to have a Line Item Veto.

    I am sure every American is also disgusted with Washington catering to their self-interest and to Lobbyist and not doing what is right for every American citizen or for America as a whole. We (Americans) need to stop talking about wanting change and start demanding our “employees” either do their job based on their employers (voters) demands or we fire them. Does anyone other than me have the fortitude to make this happen?

    See if I am correct that we need change by answering these questions?

    We the People are tired of the lack of action by “Washington” to do what is best for America?

    We the People are sick of hearing lies, empty promises and the unethical practices by some of our Representatives (elected politicians) that requires legal action?

    We the People are sick and tired of America being the “911” to the world and “saving” every third world country and giving away Billions of our dollars to those countries? Did you know that we have borrowed billions upon billions of dollars from other countries just so America can stay financially afloat? And yet we give away that same money to other countries? What the hell is going on?

    We the People are tired of hearing that Social Security can no longer be promise to continue? What you are not hearing is that Congress and our Senate has robbed from our Social Security to fund other “projects.” Everyone forgets, the money taken out of our paychecks for Social Security is put their by our employers and by us. Our Social Security funds are like a savings account, which have been stolen by our Congress and Senate with NO INTENTIONS OF PAYING BACK. Yet, they both voted for an $810 Billion dollar bailout of Wall Street and the Banking industry under the pretense they are saving America’s financial future. What they are saving is their own bank account and investments. If you had the money, would you personally buy a bad debt with the hope of recovering your investment? HELL NO! Unless you’re really stupid. This is what our Congress and Senate did by passing this bail out “plan.” If you believe any other “story” they may tell you, then you deserve to stand beside them proudly smiling with them when America goes down the drain.

    We the People are tired of being taxed to death by the IRS and with America having the most confusing and highest tax system in the world?

    We the People are tired of the lack of jobs in America and buying products made outside of our borders? You can thank NAFTA for this. Did you know that any immigrant may apply for free Federal funds (loan) with no interest and not required to pay this back to start a business and do not have to show a profit? When is the last time you applied for a loan or had a credit card with no interest or requirement to pay the loan off?

    Speaking of borders, do you feel it is right that America’s borders are not protected as they should be? There is more protection of Iraq’s borders than what we have in America? Is this right?

    We the People are tired of “pressing 1 for English, or press 2 for Spanish”? America is an English speaking country. Or is it?

    We the People are tired of paying extraordinary high prices for health insurance or not having any at all? Did you know that anyone elected to the Congress or Senate has health insurance for life and paid for by the American Taxpayer? I did not vote for this, but our representatives did. Why did this happen? Because they are looking out for themselves and not us.

    We the People are asking every American to write-in a name this November Election of anyone that will, can, do the job they will be elected too without any “ties” to any self-interest group, lobbyist or any other political or monetary gains.

    THE TIME TO REVOLT ON OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS IN WASHINGTON IS NOW! Not Later, not tomorrow, not next year.

    The AMERICA we once knew is DYING. Only you (we) can stop this death rattle.

    I have always said; a change in government (revolution) begins with an idea supported by the courage to express change. Is this not what our “Founding Fathers” expressed and accomplished?

    STAND UP FOR AMERICA.

    Are you with me or against me?
