lawmakers re-election

I can undestand the need for a large sum of money needed for a first time electee, but I think that a lawmaker that is up for re-election for the umpteenth time should be required to win or fall on his record..No need for a huge amount of money here; just put his record out there and it will speak for itself..What do you think?

  • Intriguing idea. Basically, have a confidence/no-confidence vote on your incumbant. If he fails, then he is up for election.

    I like that idea.

  • thinking usually gets me in trouble with the Silly Goose. But, I have to agree. However, without the money, there would be a lot of fact spinners out of work and drawing unemployment.

  • These folks are applying for a job and should have a resume that reflects whether or not they are worthy of being re-elected. Campaign promises are just so much rhetoric and does not indicate how they will do other than support their party line..It is shameful how much money is wasted on the media when a simple what have you done for us would be a lot more revealing. If course, if you are satisfied with the standard party line, then have at it..

  • Now, I'm not an American but even I know that politics in your great country is a lot to do with money. So er, your suggestion probably isn't going to happen soon.

    America, land of the free and democracy without substance. Don't let the Lady Liberty weep.
