How about we start treating them the way they have treated US for centuries and millennia before now? I.e: "Do what we tell you, or get your ass kicked!" I'd sign that petition/resolution in a heartbeat. There are atleast a dozen of those bastards I could name off the top of my head who merit ATLEAST an ass-whuppin'. Some friends suggested a rebirth of tarring and feathering. I believe that, since they like to exempt themselves from the laws they pass, they aught to be exempted from the Bill of Rights as well!
Don't you think your Senator or Representative would do a lot better if there were consequences associated with fucking up? We didn't have "attention defecit disorder" when I was a kid, we had ass-beatin's: A form of punishment delivered to a "brat" - a child who believed he had a right to everything to the degree he forgot the "pecking order". In addition to constituents getting "one free poke" at crooked politicians, the whole SHAMING method has great potential: if you "don't know/can't recall/do not remember/categorically deny all knowledge of" who you were hired and sent up the Hill to serve, you should have to wear a DUNCE cap whenever on TV or in public. Politicians who can't keep their pants on need to be made to wear the Scarlet Letter, a white shirt with a great big "F" for fornicator on it's back. Embezzlers and tax-cheats, a "T" For thief. Influence peddlers, a large "B" for BRIBED, and any of them that broke their campaign promises, (like the "bought lot" that pledged to halt defecit spending in 2010 and sold out to the BanKhazars a couple days ago) a big red "L" for LIAR.
It's becoming clearer all the time that party affiliation is a joke and they say whatever they think you want to hear to get
