Kick 'em all out

Yeah, count me in , too:

If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote.

So, you want to tell me that just replacing everybody would mean releasing the competent along with the marginally functional, the experienced with the unteachable, the wise with the foolish, the spendthrifts with the prudent? You're probably right that chaos would ensue. And that would be different from now, how, exactly?

Folks almost always seem to want to kick out everyone else's legislators, but not so much their own.

I suppose "if" there were to be any difference, it would be a matter of degrees.
Perhaps a "more ordered" form of chaos?
(as opposed to complete and utter anarchy)

Just a thought.

As long as the prevailing ethic includes accepting bribes in exchange for votes only the names will change.
