Let's Fire Politicians Because They Don't Vote A Certain Way, It Will Totally Solve All Of Our Problems

Fire the Democrats who vote like Republicans - Opinion


"On Saturday, I received a letter from the office of Rep. Jim Davis, the member of the U.S. House of Representatives who ostensibly speaks for those in his district, myself included. It was a reply to a letter I wrote him asking why he had not started impeachment proceedings against President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for acts they had committed since taking office in 2001. These include misleading the country into a war of aggression - Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan said, "From the (United Nations) charter point of view, it (the war) was illegal" - encouraging torture, spying on Americans without a warrant, and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Davis replied he had not done anything because none of his colleagues have initiated the process yet. Davis' words were not those of a leader."

-Encouraging torture? What are these "other high crimes and misdemeanors" that you speak of? Do you smell that? I sure rhymes with "bullspit"... Using Dr. Thomas Sowell's example: "If a captured terrorist knows where a nuclear bomb has been planted in some American city, and when it is timed to go off, are millions of Americans to be allowed to be incinerated because we have become too squeamish to get that information out of him by whatever means are necessary?" Even if this wasn't the case, is it really intelligent to notify all the terrorists all over the world that they can remain silent when they are caught, without fear of their actions? As Dr. Sowell says again "There is no penalty for false claims but potentially deadly consequences for letting international terrorists tie up our legal system by exercising rights granted to American citizens and now thoughtlessly extended to people who are not American citizens and who are bent on killing American citizens and destroying American society."

"Davis, like Nelson, also voted for Bush's illegal war of aggression against the people of Iraq and continually votes for the obscene Pentagon budgets that fuel the Bush doctrine of expansionist militarism. Davis, like Nelson, voted for the Patriot Act during its first inception; however, he did not vote at all when the act came up for renewal."

-"Ilegal war of aggression"...that's funny. The "left" and the "right" shouldn't vote "certain" ways (the way that most of their party is voting) they should choose the most rational, logical alternative and go with it. For some reason you think they should be fired, which I think is laughable. You're obviously liberal, and you assume that anything your party does is automatically correct because they do it, and you agree with them. It would be nice if we could start talking about becoming humans (i.e. using our rational consciousness) and not this "robot" race that you obviously strive for.

"Others running for Davis' seat are less progressive. State Sen. Les Miller, D-Tampa, advocates using coal and nuclear power as energy sources. Another leading candidate, Hillsborough County Commissioner Kathy Castor, has been the only non-homophobic voice on the County Commission, yet shows she is not serious about the office by not mentioning the war in Iraq on her Web site."

-I see nothing wrong with nuclear power. It is the cleanest, safest, and cheapest way to provide energy to the masses. I don't see how those issues correlate with their political stance, but O.K. you're right.
