Oh, my.  This is interesting.  A new poll taken says that only 30% of voters are willing to re-elect incumbents during next year's elections.

I know, there's a difference between "change" and "progress."  But we aren't likely to get progress any time soon, so might as well go for change.

During the 2010 elections, about half polled said they were willing to vote for the incumbents.

Folks, the time is right.  Voter anger is still high, and they are still pissed.

Your mission is to find good candidates.  Democrat, Republican, I don't care.  Find good people willing to be responsible and represent you.  This could be the best chance to get real representation in Congress again.

"Progress" can only be made when the people in the government start remembering who they work for. "Change" is a necessary catalyst for the governmental memory process. Those people getting public office in landslide victories over incumbents see that "The People" are pissed, and they want to stay on "The People"'s good side (for the most part... and we are seeing a lot of that playing out in Congress lately). But that isn't enough to make old time incumbents (like Dick Durbin) remember who signs the paycheck... yet.

I am not entirely pleased with Adam Kinzinger and Mark Kirk, but I also not entirely displeased either. They aren't doing a BAD job, but I am watching them. Durbin has to go.

That having been said...

RON PAUL 2012!!!
