Disgusted with the federal government
By Walter Norum

I am so disgusted with the performance of the federal government, that I want to get all of them out of office. I am not going to get into what they are doing wrong because it would take hours. The purpose of this letter is a possible solution to the problem. In November of 2012, when we vote, let's NOT vote for an incumbent. Let's get all of these people out and start with new people. If we had a 50 or 60% voter turnout, (I would like to see more), and not a single incumbent had been elected, we would be sending a tremendous message to the world. The American people are taking back their country.

For decades, the government has been the boss. Their way of governing has been wrong. The American people keep telling them that what they are doing is wrong. They ignore us. We are the boss. Let's exercise one of the rights of being the boss. Let's fire the people who won't do what they are told. Let's see if they get the message. That message is do what we say or go down the road. That same message will be sent to the new people that we elect.

This is something that every American can do. It doesn't matter whether we vote Democratic or Republican. We need a government that will work together with the American people to solve the problems. To solve the problems, we need a government who will lead us and make suggestions that are progressive, reasonable and doable. This government is fighting among themselves (Democrats against Republicans) and there is no focus on what the major problems are. I have this little pun that I like to use. "The only way we could make this government work would be for medical science to develop a vaccine, that, when injected, would change GREED to PATRIOTISM".

Please think about this. This country is in so much trouble that it is going to take some drastic measures to fix.

Thank you,
