Let's face it, the current crop of politicians in Washington don't care about the voters. Both Democrats and Republicans continue to break campaign promises and further the culture of corruption that is American politics. What's the answer? Elect anyone running against an incumbent. In other words, Re-Elect Nobody!
We are a grassroots organization committed to helping return political power to the people by replacing incumbent politicians with qualified newcomers who are not beholden to special interests or to their own political self-preservation.
When a majority of people in office are newcomers, the stranglehold of money and power can be broken and government can get back to the business of serving the people who elected them, instead of serving the lobbyists and fat cat contributors who generously fund the incumbents' reelection campaigns.
We will do this work by raising money through this website from individuals who believe it's time for a change. The money collected will be used to encourage that change. It will be used to encourage qualified individuals to challenge incumbents. It will be used to underwrite some of the expenses underfunded political challengers face in trying to get their messages out to the voters. It will help qualified candidates running against incumbents only.
Please, help us put fresh faces in office by making a contribution through one of the methods that will soon be provided on this webpage.
Because together we can make a difference.
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy con vincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want.If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
If the Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ .
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like 'the economy,' 'inflation,' or 'politics' that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it is up to you, though you appear to have several choices.
1. You can send this to everyone in your address book, and hope they do something about it.
2. You can agree to vote against everyone that is currently in office, knowing that the process will take several years.
3. You can decide to run for office yourself and agree to do the job properly.
4. Lastly, you can sit back and do nothing, or re-elect the current bunch.
YOU DECIDE, BUT AT LEAST SEND IT TO EVERYONE IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK, MAYBE SOMEONE IN THERE WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Re-Elect Nobody! In 2014 Ozzie Knezovich Best To Vote For Someone New ! The Sheriff For Spokane County In 2014 (R)My law enforcement career started when I served as a Town Marshal for the small community of Superior, Wyoming. During my career, I have worked for the City of Rock Springs Wyoming serving as a patrol officer, relief patrol supervisor and I was charged with developing the City's School Resource Officer program. I have also served as a patrol officer for the City of Olympia, Washington.
On April 11, 2006 the Spokane County Board of Commissioners unanimously appointed me to the position of Spokane County Sheriff. Subsequently, I was elected to the Office of Sheriff in the fall of 2006 by 75% of the popular vote.
As Sheriff of Spokane County, I oversee the law enforcement activities in the unincorporated areas of Spokane County and several contract cities and towns. I am also responsible for managing the county's Corrections System and the county's Department of Emergency Management.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office is comprised of 670 employees and has a $71 million dollar annual budget.
Prior to being appointed to the office of Sheriff, I held the following positions at the Sheriff's Office: patrol deputy, field training officer, property crimes detective, sex crimes detective, SWAT team operator, SWAT Team supervisor, patrol supervisor, and training supervisor.
Serving as co-chair of two committees with the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs helps to keep me informed and involved with my counterparts in other law enforcement agencies; I serve on the Accreditation Committee and the Intelligence and Technology Committee, I have a high degree of interest in both areas.
I also sit on the State of Washington's Criminal Justice Training Commission's Basic Law Enforcement Standards and Education board. My philosophy is that the most important thing I will do is prepare those in law enforcement to serve their communities in a professional manner and, in doing so, help to develop the future leaders within the law enforcement community.
As a result of this philosophy, I have stressed the need to develop quality law enforcement training within the Spokane County Region; opening the Spokane County Sheriff's in-service training to all of the law enforcement agencies within the region. I believe that providing consistent training will better prepare law enforcement officers in serving their communities and working together. The Spokane County Sheriff's Office has developed a training philosophy which has made it a major provider of law enforcement training, not only for the State of Washington, but also the nation.
In 2008, we hosted 60 law enforcement courses, drawing over 3000 students to Spokane County from all over the United States and Canada. The Sheriff's Office has developed partnerships with many agencies to provide this training including the FBI-LEEDA. The Sheriff's Office hosted the FBI-LEEDA Command Institute for Law Enforcement Executives in 2007 and 2008.
Less-than-subtle jabs, political posturing and a quick JFK impression made for what seemed like a politely resentful first debate between two-term Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich and challenger Douglas Orr, a detective with the Spokane Police Department. Responding to more than two dozen questions Wednesday night, they both addressed staffing cuts, budget challenges and new alternative justice proposals with side remarks on legalized marijuana, jail overcrowding, drones and body cameras. Both Knezovich and Orr are running as Republicans. They both voice support for Smart Justice-style reforms of the county's criminal justice system, which focus on offender rehabilitation and services instead of hard prison or jail sentences. Both pledged to reshape local law enforcement through improved partnerships and technology.
But Knezovich suggests Orr does not have enough experience or a proper understanding of the challenges facing the Sheriff's Office. He challenged or corrected Orr on several points, arguing his opponent had oversimplified issues or repeated false information. He also accused Orr of opposing important projects or reform ideas.
"If you want to have leadership and you want to move things forward, you can't have 'no,'" Knezovich says. "That's all my opponent has said tonight. … My opponent has never led anything."
Orr, who has served with the SPD since 1996 and in law enforcement since 1987, has in turn accused Knezovich of heavy handed discipline that has alienated employees and risks hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlement costs. He says Spokane County needs a change.
"We know the pathway to reform," Orr says. "It doesn't make sense to re-elect the same person who represents what we've been doing in the past. We need a smarter, more genuine leader to move forward."
Orr says the core of leadership is influence, arguing he has the personal relationships and expertise to drive reform through collaboration instead of contention. He repeatedly attacked Knezovich for supporting tax increases, reacting slowly on reform efforts and politicizing his office.
Several times Orr brought up rumored problems with Sheriff's employee morale or personnel disputes, not explicitly blaming Knezovich, but floating the accusation, saying: "I don't know this for a fact, but …"
The detective, who holds a master's degree and PhD, says he plans to introduce new research-based programs to cut crime and costs. He praised a Daytona Beach, Florida, program that developed "burglary profiles" to reduce property crimes as well as other emerging strategies.
"If you elect me sheriff, other people will be writing about us," he says. "Other agencies will want to be us."
When Orr raised the prospect of improved surveillance technology and police drones, he emphasized the importance of establishing appropriate laws to protect personal privacy. Knezovich seized the moment to score easy applause on the point.
"I believe we have legislation on that — it's called the Constitution," Knezovich quipped.
The sheriff then went on to make essentially the same point as Orr, saying drones could be helpful in some scenarios, such as search and rescue, but should be approached carefully to protect privacy.
Knezovich listed a range of statistics on cost-saving measures he has introduced during his administration. He says the department now uses priority-based staffing and budgeting to make sure core services have the support and funding they need, while changes in jail operations and other projects have reduced annual spending.
He also says the unincorporated county has enjoyed a 60 percent decrease in violent crime along with a 2 percent drop in property crimes. He pinpointed property crimes as the department's most challenging priority.
Both men expressed concerns about the legalization of medical marijuana and its potential impact on law enforcement. Knezovich says he considers the issue an "unfunded mandate" that will force deputies to monitor new growing, selling and possession laws. Orr says he believes the drug will have a negative effect on the border county, but may prove a "great experiment" on drug regulation.
When asked if they would take a pay cut, Knezovich outlined the extensive responsibilities of the office and noted he already receives a salary of $115,000, which is lower than the undersheriff's salary of $120,000. Orr says public service should not be about making money, offering, "Of course, I'd take the pay cut."
Body cameras found strong support with both Knezovich and Orr. The sheriff says he believes the cameras would save the county millions in potential settlement costs and his department has already started talks with a vendor. Orr noted some concerns about privacy issues and making the video footage public, but pledged to implement body cams within a year of taking office.
One of the strangest moments may have been when Orr emphasized the importance of visionary leadership by quoting John F. Kennedy's moon-landing prediction in an impression of the president's heavy New England accent: "We're going to go to the moon in 10 years," Orr imitated quickly before returning to his topic.
"You're going to see two distinct, completely different visions for the Spokane County Sheriff's Office," Orr says. "One vision will be reactive. The other proactive."
Both men embraced the recent recommendations from the Spokane Regional Criminal Justice Commission, calling for a more holistic and offender-based approach to justice and rehabilitation. Additional debates are expected to be held in the coming months.
