Today Indiana Senator Evan Bayh came out and announced that he will not run for re-election, siting the dismal affair that our government has become.
From Yahoo News:
In an interview on MSNBC this morning, newly retiring Sen. Evan Bayh declared the American political system "dysfunctional," riddled with "brain-dead partisanship" and permanent campaigning. Flatly denying any possibility that he'd seek the presidency or any other higher office, Bayh argued that the American people needed to deliver a "shock" to Congress by voting incumbents out en masse and replacing them with people interested in reforming the process and governing for the good of the people, rather than deep-pocketed special-interest groups.Vote them out indeed! It's time to join forces with the Tea Party folks. Although we may be far apart on some items, on others such as Single Payer Health Care we are on the same path. As noted in this CNN poll 63% of those polled agree that all incumbents should be tossed out.
Agent 99 found this article at Alternet highlighting the downfall of the American Middle Class - one more reason to join the Tea Party folks.
Wake up people - we're in the same boat! Our Legislators are not working for us, they've been bought by the corporations and the Military Industrial Complex.
It's time to paddle together and get this ship headed in the right direction!
