Look out, incumbents

May 24, 2010

In response to your editorial about last Tuesday's primary election results ("Muddled tea leaves," May20) the reason the voters are going to vote all incumbents out of office is to send a message to all new office holders, and that is to do the voters wishes not theirs. Politicians have taken the voters for granted way too long. I believe this year Congress will learn that the people are fed up and won't take it any longer.

If you're Democrat, vote Democrat. Just don't vote for the incumbent.

If you're Republican, vote Republican. Just don't vote for the incumbent.

If you're Independent, vote the best running against incumbents; this group probably has the best knowledge of who's who.

We need to send a message to all politicians, that we're tired of their bull.

If the country votes out all the incumbents, the new incoming politicians will get the message.

It's pretty simple. Nobody needs to change parties, and lets face it, there's plenty of blame to spread around.

A few good politicians will lose their jobs, but they probably have better retirement and insurance then 95 percent of the American public.

You've had to struggle for the last five years. Some of you have lost your job and may be working in some other sector just to feed your family. I guarantee you, none of them will suffer like this country has.
