FLUSH THE RASCALS OUT
by Arthur Lukas
Well congress, in the words of Ronald Reagan, “There you go again!”
Our representatives (sic) in congress are doing it to us again. The Patriot Act, the Iraq War, the Military Commissions Act, the ex post facto telecommunications industry immunity from prosecution for illegal wire tapping, . . . were not enough. Now congress is putting us all in debt to the tune of $700 billion. And we all know how these things work—if the $700,000,000,000 doesn’t do the job, our beloved congress, with much hand wringing, will have to add a few more hundred billion to the pot to protect their original bet. There they go again!
Once again the American people have risen up and made our voices heard and our wishes clear—NO BAILOUT. Of course we have done this before; like when we came out in the hundreds of thousands to stop the invasion of Iraq before it happened. Our representatives (sic, sic, sic) listened to us then just as they are listening to us now. There they go again!
How do we get those who are supposed to be representing us to listen and do what we are asking them to do? We do what American citizens have done so many times in the past—”Throw the rascals out!” We throw them out by voting them out of office.
There is a simple equation, which even the corporate sponsored congress will understand—your vote for the $700,000,000,000 bailout of Wall Street bankers equals my vote against you on November 4, 2008. We can get rid of each and every senator and representative who casts a yes vote on the bailout by simply voting against each and every one of them in the next election.
Rather than thinking of this as throwing the rascals out, think of it as cleansing the system by flushing out the muck of soulless politicians who have sold out to the highest bidder.
We can start flushing the rascals out by sending a strong message to congress before the final vote. Tomorrow night (September 30) at 9 PM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (8 PM Central, 7 PM Mountain, and 6 PM Pacific) we can flush our toilets. Across America hundreds of thousands of toilets will be flushed. Communities throughout this great nation will feel the effect of a temporary fall in water pressure. This will let those rascals in D.C. feel the power of the people. It might even stop their rascally madness.
If tomorrow’s flush doesn’t get their attention, our vote in November will.
FLUSH YOUR TOILET SEPTEMBER 30 – FLUSH THE RASCALS OUT NOVEMBER 4
Why Nader can’t, is, no-one likes a cop watching them.
Right on Ralph!!
