By signing this petition you are standing up as a courageous American citizen and identifying yourself as someone who is going to participate in a moratorium on Party Politics by refusing to vote for any of your incumbents in the upcoming elections. By voting against every incumbent we can end the reign of the career politicians. We can show every sitting career politician that "no matter how much money they spend, no matter how many pretty words they try to con us with, "WE ARE NOT VOTING FOR THEM!! We can utterly change the rules, totally shake things up and open the door for many more ordinary citizens to run for office. You also petition to vote against career politicians in order to achieve a goal far more important than determining which party controls Congress or State legislature. You will cast your votes with the primary purpose of proving we are fed up, and that WE control who gets those jobs, not special interest groups or the political parties they control. You pledge to go to the front lines of this next Great American Revolution, the voting booth, and fire your vote bullets to FIRE CONGRESS, to fire every incumbent we possibly can! By making this pledge you are encouraging others to take a stand with you against corruption and special interest control of our government and election process. Only by uniting the power of our votes in this way can we effect change that will be FELT in the most undeniable way possible. Unless the power of our votes are cast in a way that produces "real change," until our will is truly felt, we have no power over our government.

      It is the GOP who has ambushed Obama since the day he took office. Yes, I will be voting differently this time.

      The Republic in it's current form of elected representation was started in an environment of difficult communication that required weeks to months for messages to travel from one place to another. And also with the notion that representatives may be wiser and more easily debate and resolve issues. The Internet and other electronic media invalidate the first reason and allow everyone near instantaneous information. The behavior of the current crop of representatives demonstrates that the second reason is also invalid. We can do better without them. Fire them all. Amend the constitution to make job performance mandatory. Outlaw lobbying of any kind. Mandate term limits to 2 terms maximum per lifetime. Three simple first steps.
