galvanize a public, and offer an unquestioned proof of the need for swift
change. Pete Stark (D) -- Representative of California, has offered
such a mandate. It is best to provide a direct opportunity for
people to see the evidence for their own eyes and ears. Therefore, I

Pete Stark video at a town hall meeting
As an elected
representative at any level, if you cannot muster the mental discipline to
genuinely respect the views of those whom you disagree with, then you are
ill suited to hold the elected office you sought.
In America, political power is a purely voluntary institution. You choose
freely to throw your hat into the ring; even the phrase reflects the
voluntary nature of the action. The phrase itself is an accurate
summation of the original act where people stand around and discuss who
their representative should be, and several people decide to literally
take off their hats and throw them into a ring on the ground as a public
announcement of their intentions to run for elected office.
Pete Stark revealed a totally corrupted mindset -- corrupted by sheer
arrogance and condescension. And by doing this, he proved himself unworthy
for office. That arrogance was enough.
However, he compounded his arrogance with personal ignorance of essential
First, as the narrative proclaimed, certain laws he referenced were
repealed many years ago. As a legislator, it is his job to know the law.
But worse, rather than show genuine desire to understand his opponents,
and through that action reveal that fine art known as statesmanship,
instead Stark showed the political and intellectual curiosity of a stone
wall, with all the charm of a rattlesnake!
These people like Stark are walking billboards proclaiming the imminent
need for term limits. They are walking reminders of the wisdom of the
truism that "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
This nation needs a revolution, and fortunately our Constitution allows
the citizens a peaceful method. This mid-term election simply must be a
public manifesto on ending the concept of entitlement to American
political power. The corrupt Republicans were thrown out of office in the
2008 election. Now, the worse corruption of the Democrats must be purged.
It is not the act of purging that is often evil, but the methods used.
Fortunately in America, we don't have to use bullets and torture. We can
use a better tool -- the ballot of the people. The results are the same
and for this nation at this time, are absolutely necessary for our future.
