I don't think our forefathers meant for our political representatives to make a profession out of their elected position. We gave the presidency a two-term limitation. I think they should have term limits for Congress. I also don't think our forefathers meant for them to be federal employees; rather they should have been on the payroll of their state.

I think the tea parties across our nation are trying to tell our Congress "hold down the spending and only spend what you have." Presently, the Democrats and Republicans are not very different in their programs except they don't agree with each other and they both only know spending and big government in Washington. Ask for a copy of the secretary's report of both the Senate and House and it will show what it is costing taxpayers for running these institutions.

I am again pledging that I and my family are not going to be voting for incumbents and hope to start over to help save our nation. I hope God will help us to regain our nation. God bless the United States of America.
