I saw some video coverage of them marching around and chanting while carrying Obama signs. I haven't seen video footage of the tire slashings or window breaking. The news showed video of the circus-like way that some of them were dressed. Just goons. No wonder that this type of protest just doesn't appeal to more conservative people.

Congressional ratings first hit nine percent (9%) back at the beginning of July, marking the lowest ratings recorded by Rasmussen Reports. Ratings hit the same low two weeks later. Congress has not received higher than a 15% approval rating since the beginning of this year.

Really, I would like to turn out most of them and replace them with a third party. But there aren't enough third party candidates to replace them all.

It doesn't matter as much as I would have liked to have Repubicans in charge of Congress. Even when we had a Republican president at the same time, they didn't do anything that the electorate sent them to do. This is why I stopped being a Republican in 2006. I had enough.

Democrats are even worse. But they have proven they are impotent (at least while there is a Republican president). Maybe that is the best thing for now. If government is not able to get any new laws passed, at least we wont have more abuse of power.

What we really need is to abolish much of what the Federal government has taken upon itself. It has usurped the power that is reserved to the states or the people.
