To the Editor:
Republicans and Democrats have spent more money than the government collects in all but two of the last 40 years. Why do they do it? Money buys votes. They spend your money in order to gain your favor and the favor of other voters in order to be re-elected. When your money is not enough they borrow more. This works well for them. In every election since 1964 over 80% of House incumbents have been reelected.
The question is why you allow it. You may continue to do things as you have in the past and hope for a miracle or you can make a difference by joining the Revolution underway at www.GOOOH.com (pronounced Go). GOOOH is a non partisan process for electing representatives that are not indebted to special interest groups or interested in being career politicians. The future of the country is up to YOU and the time is NOW.
