Revolt!

While I am completely in agreement with the speaker’s anger, passion and sense of urgency, I am in profound disagreement with three of the ideas he promotes.

  1. Term limits.
  2. The draft.
  3. Eliminating the Electoral College.

Congressional term limits would throw out the statesmen, though they are few, with the demagogues & pork fiends. We do not presently need and can not afford an army of the size that would result from universal service. The Electoral College is needed to prevent the densely populated urban areas along the coasts from running away with power. It should not be tampered with.

Mailing tea bags to Washington seems to me to be a wasteful symbolic gesture. Security procedures instituted after the Anthrax attacks have have hampered important and necessary postal communication with Congressmen. Mailing tea bags would compound that problem.

There are petitions you can sign & promote and tea parties to attend. But, if you really want to instill fear in the hearts of the demagogues, those activities pale before the one act that has real potential: a mass exodus from the corrupt parties to a new startup: the Loyalist Party. When the the corrupt parties phone or write begging for money, turn them down and tell them where your support is going and why. If enough people do that, the parties will be forced to take notice.
