"This is how you win."

It is good. Call out all of the sitting political class.

The great thing about this ad, is that the party of Landrieu made it into office exploiting the anger and helplessness of the poor.

The politicians are so busy helping themselves they forget who they work for. Time for a reality lesson, as vigorous as it needs to be.
In their faces and a kick in the ass. Voting them out will be the least of their problems.
"That's the nice thing about reality though, consequences are immediate and proportional: a short'n sharp feedback, no room for dithering excuses." — Remus

As Gerard says "Door. Ass. Bang."

My uncle Letsgo Lozko, he raised bantam chickens. When one got to be more trouble than it was worth he would say to me "boy, hand to me hatchet".

You don't get to vote someone out, you only get to vote another criminal in.

Voting got us here, voting will keep us here.

I use the permanent fix.

DPJK is the guideline.

I don't know what is the best analogy for attempting to remove any politician from office; cancer?, cardiac surgery? hemorrhoid treatment?.

Most pols are just hemorrhoids, pain in the ass but not life threatening.
A few are a real threat to livelihoods and heartfelt beliefs and are worth the time, money and pain needed to fix the damage.
A very few are like a cancer spreading malignancies throughout the body politic and require surgery and radiation, fire and sword. And you may die in the attempt.

Assuming we survive, may I suggest a regular dose of Term Limits? Six months seems fair. In case of war we elect a Strategos for the duration.

I hope Mary Landrieu loses simply because she is a mindless left wing puppet of the socialist party. But "helping blacks"! Let me help: Get an education, at least learn what you can from the feee K-12 education we taxpayers are providing you. Don't get pregnant until you are happily married. Plan on working 40 hours a week 52 weeks a year for 55 years or so, don't look for welfare to take care of you. Avoid drugs, alcohol and cigarettes, they are expensive and deadly. Take responsibility for your children and help them with their education and their struggle with becoming a decent member of society. Stop blaming others for your problems.

Term limits. Six months seems fair.

There ya go, the reason for the problem in the first place.

How do you explain such a thing?
It is beyond my grasp, beyond my comprehension.

Here's what those six words really said:
It's OK to steal from me for, oh say, 6 months but if you want to steal from me for the rest of my entire life that's OK too.

Jeeziss fukking kryste.

No wonder this country is doomed.
It deserves to be!

Tenure of any sort is a variation on the Democratic strategy. once they get the job they can do anything they want and if it is a short tenure they steal more faster.

Performance is the only way to evaluate and keep or oust politicians, same as it is in the real callous-creating workplace.
No keep promises? No provide benefits and care for constituents? No cut excess spending, actually reduce budget all across board?
Turn them over to the street jackals with no retirement or pension, nothing. Fine them if you can. Jail time an option.

Door. Ass. Bang. Hard and fast.

And then after you have shown you have a brain by voting out the trash, try paying attention in school so your career doesn't consist of collecting it.
