To the editor:
The American people have spoken. Hundreds of politicians who chose not to attend townhall meetings in the past year to account for their voting record are gone.
The big media outlets who maligned the Americans who wanted answers are stunned. Many of them are close to being out of business anyway because they have become nothing more than political hacks.
So, where do we go from here? Not all the politicians came up for election this year, but will in 2012. We’re still waiting for answers from some as to why they voted the way they have. It’s simple: no explaining to the people, no renewal of their job. We’ll hire a replacement.
People of all political flavors have joined together and the progressives and country club Republicans better listen. We ran the show at the ballot box, they don’t with backroom deals, pork barrel legislation and shady voting schemes. Many of the new faces in St. Paul and Washington are now everyday people, not groomed politicians; as it should be.
A big thanks to those who won and to those who gave it everything in defeat. My disgust to those who beat those losers by out-politicking them. I think we all know what that statement means.
The work begins now. Let’s join in to repair the waste and corruption. Financially, it will be a bitter pill for awhile. We owe it. Or have we become so worthless that we can’t pass America on as great as we got it?
