Let's Drain Congress--

--Let's start a movement called, "DOC".  Drain Our Congress!

If we can stir up enough sh**, maybe we can get some of these obstructionist pubs kicked out of office.

We can say, "Congress is sick and it's time to call the, DOC!"
We can push term limits at the same time!

To borrow Varney's favorite saying, "What say you?"

It won't happen.  Term Limits would have to be a Constitutional Amendment.  That won't happen even if the current Congressman were not included.  They would never vote for it. ==  The only possible way to change things is a Constitutional Convention of the States.  That won't happen.  It is OVER...........

I guess I'm more optimistic. We've come this far in less than a year. Keep talking about it. DOC!
  

Why aren't we investigating the President and staff that held office while the supposed Russian interference occurred?

They did that in 2006.  That's what lead to the mess that we are in now.  Libertarians lead by Bill O'Reilly, Neil Boortz and Glenn Beck used the mantra "Send the GOP a message, replace them in Congress."  Well, the country did.,  The Libertarians were mad that the GOP was not sticking to their platform of small government and state rights.  Their big idea was to replace these GOP Congressmen and Senators with members of the DNC.  Yea, bring in tax-and-spend Democrats is going to shrink the government. 

The result was Pelosi and Reid controlling Congress and the Senate, and the election of Obama.  A side effect is that the GOP thinks that they have to be more like the DNC to appease the voters.  Hence the Congressional cesspool. 

So, if we decide to "Drain Congress", we need to do it responsibly.  That is to support Congressional Candidates that match conservative ideas.  Support them in the primaries.  But if they lose the primaries, then support the winner.  Do NOT SUPPORT DNC CANDIDATES JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT THE INCOMBENTS!!!   Otherwise, you will be handing Congress and the Senate back to the DNC, and make things even worse!!!

Handing Congress and the Senate back to the demoncraps will get Trump impeached.

We learned from 2006. Since then, getting rid of RINOs has involved hitting them in the primaries. Putting us conservatives in place of RNC favorites is a prime reason TEA is vilified by both the DNC and RNC. The progress is slow, but real progress is being made. The House Freedom Caucus is a direct result of the call to "primary them" every other year. They are still a small minority, but a minority that is able to make their voices - and ours - felt when it comes to passing unwanted, government-growing legislation.
