What if we filled Congress & POTUS during the next big election with people not running under the GOP or Democrat party? (It could be a one-time protest, not necessarily a new way for us to vote.) What if we elected a BUNCH of passionate oddballs like Trump into offices that maintain this country? At the very least, even if we did not succeed but came close - I think GOP & Dems might start thinking twice about how/why they do the things they do, and for whom. What do you think? Would it have any affect, at all? Do you think enough people would even join in the protest to make a difference?
sort by best latest
The idea comes from Trump & Obama. BO was the original oddball (they can be educated, not brainwashed) then we got Trump via hysteria - & still no bipartisanship. This protest might get a point across if promoted right, don't you think?
Would never think of BO as oddball (outlier, maybe) but Dem mainstream. I voted Romney-McCain.
Protest vote would go too far and we're stuck w/crazy. The U.S. is too important for that. Many Americans don't realize our place in the world.
AMEN CJ ~ Here's a FEW IMPORTANT REASONs WHY I VOTE Prog. Democratic ~ Democrats R FIGHTING 4 Universal Health-Care, 2 ENHANCE Social Security & Medicare, 2 FUND Medicaid, 2 offer FREE College etc ~ Donald & CONservatives OPPRESS Americans
Obama didn't end an oddball but was voted in as 1 over Hillary cuz we wanted 'change' remember? He was inexperienced & meant to buck the system, be an educated Trump LoL! Just cuz GOP chose someone like T doesnt mean they would all be like that.
Gov Work is NOT complex? I worked a lot of defense projs mostly as a consultant. I know a lot about these workers. I also worked in the private sector so I know the contrast.
I also bid on some gov contracts and I know how slimy is that process
Cj, it is thinking like yours that allows our government to be treated special and ineffective...
Government is a business like any other business. It needs to be accountable to its customers - the people. When it gets so conplicated to be run effici
JL, Government is not a business, as https://hubpages.com/politics/The-U-S-Constitution... shows, it is a contract between the governed and governors where we are supposed to eliminate anyone in government who breaches that contract.
It is a business in the sense that it serves at the pleasure of its customers. The people pay through their taxes for services provided by the government. If the government cannot deliver, they are voted out. The problem arises when govt knows best..
Our taxes are to ensure the 6 conditions the Preamble intended accomplished are, we determines what we want and taxes to the governors are to assist our obtaining them. No way is the US' government supposed to be a business.
What are you saying? Impeach for what? For someone who bring up our Constitution and not have a basic understanding of it is very unsettling.
A Misdemeanor per Article 2.4, none in government is constitutionally elected causes them to committed perjury, a high Crime. 9/11 was Treason everyone in government refused to prosecute Bush and company for makes them treasonous.
I think you'll have a hard time selling that idea to the masses. I'm trying to think of something that all sides will feel good about. We ALL want things to change. How else can we do it with so many people & with such deep divisions?
Everyone looks at one side or another rather than the whole, it should be "the constitution require it, make it so" and not the unconstitutional parties or sides. When we say "it's the law, it matters not what I like obey the law" we'll have unity.
When we stop treating the Constitution as if it were the unchangeable Word of God, with people arguing over interpretations of it - and start utilizing it in wise ways as it can apply to our government today - then we'll have unity.
Revelation 12:5 calls it a "Rod of Iron" for governing the nations with, Isaiah 45:7 say the Lord DO everything done so I treat everything as the "word of God" since god is doing it.
With the idea that 'god is doing' everything, then we don't have to think for ourselves, do we? Our founding fathers thought of everything all the way into our future and no adjustments are ever needed? God created us with a brain for a reason.
They reestablished the USA to become Mystery, Babylon the Great... so the world can come to an end in 2028 or sooner. We are living robots and, as "the Matrix" demonstrated, it's all a real illusion played out throughout infinity.
Good grief. You seriously need to at least GLANCE thru my 1st spotlight hub, E. Conspiracies (even real ones) do NOT equal an unchanging prophecy & many people have been deceived like you have. Minds were created to be FREE, not enslaved in fear.
I don't see "E. Conspiracies" on your profile, how can I read it. Only when anyone doesn't comprehend Reincarnation and Karma controls all of existence and there is no good nor evil does one live afraid. fear, "to approach with cautious learning"
Trump inspired idea cuz 1) our world has not ended nor will it necessarily end just cuz someone with his inexperience & disposition is potus & 2) Its time to think outside the box: last 2 pres' from either party were meant to bring change &am
Well, I think its kind of hard to vote out an incumbent and vote in a member of the same party at the same time - plus, I don't think that would send the message we want, either. If the parties actually felt threatened, they MIGHT change.
JL, they are supposed to know they are our trustees and we can force time limits on them if we band together and DEMAND it constitutionally.
