No Incumbents

Using the historical analogy of the phalanx, Borepatch compares the Roman legions' defeat of that particular war model with the modern day tea party/vote-the-bums-out objectives of today's voter block.
People are talking about 100 Democratic seats being lost this November. I for one will consider this a failure if 20 Republicans are not also turned out into the street. I want Congress terrified of us, more terrified of us than tempted by their old comfortable ways. I want them thinking on their future.

The Machine Crumbles
There's an old Roman saying that applies here: Oderint, dum metuant. Let them hate, so long as they fear.

Sweep the Congress clean, Clean out the Statehouses - No Incumbents.

Thanks for the link, and for getting the word out.

We need to put a bit of stick about, to get their attention.

I haven't voted for an incumbent in years.

I encourage my readers to head over to your site. I learn something each time I stop by.
