Heron. pl. he·roes: A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life.
No sacrificing of lives needed, just a few willing to put their political careers on the line.
Our government is too big. It has grown under every congress and every administration in living memory. We can no longer afford it, literally.
As of election day 2008, the approval rating of congress was in single digits. 70% of Americans wanted to scrap it and start over. Now is our chance to do that. We have a year to find people willing to run. We have a year to find a leader among the good that are there. We have a year to find a platform to motivate.
What we are looking for here is ideas for that platform, names of congressmen and women who are worth fighting for, and a manhunt for the next representatives in congress.
This community is open to anyone, doesn't matter what party or political label you define yourself as, who believes in a smaller government, more fiscal responsibility, and congressional accountability.
If the above sounds like you and you can discuss rationally with others, join us. If you join and we find that you cannot be polite, especially in dissent, then understand you will be leaving. This is really easy. Just be respectful.
