Recess is for children
By Billy D. Clifford


May 18, 2012

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives continue to get re-elected in spite of their inability to resolve our $15 trillion national debt - which they created. Yet Congress is taking a two-week recess! And when they get back in session, they will spend much of their time and energy preparing for the next election. Why do we continue to give jobs to these inept people? We need serious, responsible adults who will spend their time and energy on the real problems our country faces. Recess is for children.

Here are two actions you can take to improve the quality of representatives:

1. Do not vote for the incumbent. This is a simple way to enforce term limits.
2. Support any candidates that are selected by the GOOOH process ( These candidates will agree to term limits and are not associated with any political party.

Serving in Congress should be an honor, not a career.
