New Political Party Forming --- the New Blood Party (NBP)

Here’s an idea for a new political party.  It won’t cost you a cent to join, but if you do join, it would make a monumental difference in your life and in the lives of all other Americans.

This new political party won’t hold a convention, won’t elect officers, and won’t ask you for money.  All you have to do to join is don’t vote for an incumbent.

This New Blood Party has only one party plank; vote every incumbent out of office in the next elections and in every future election.  You'll get more bang for your buck if you vote with the NBP at every political level --- local, state, and federal.  But it's exceptionally important at the federal level.

In other words, federal politicians would get one term, and one term only.  If you like, we can expand the term for a member of Congress to four years.  One 6-year term as a senator seems just about right as it is, in my judgment.
If you're Democrat, vote Democrat. Just don't vote for the incumbent Democrat.
If you're Republican, vote Republican. Just don't vote for the incumbent Republican.  Whatever your political stripe, just don't vote for an incumbent.  Join the NBP

Send a message to all politicians; we're tired of their B.S., and we’re not going to take it anymore. Use the ballot box; make a difference.  Don't simply vote for the "lesser of the two evils" as we've all been doing.  Join the NBP; don't vote for an incumbent. No exceptions.
It's pretty simple. Nobody needs to change parties or political philosophy. A few good politicians would lose their jobs, but don't worry; they probably have better retirement and health insurance than 95% of the American public anyway.  They'll be okay.
We’ve all had to struggle for the last five years. Have you had a raise?  Me neither.  Some of you have lost your job and may now be working a lower paying job just to feed your family.  You can thank Congress for that; The 545 have the power, you know.  Recessions don't just happen.  You can read more about that here , and for good measure, here.
It really doesn’t even matter who is President of the United States.  It is pleasant to have a President who can make a good speech, but that's not really what matters.  It wouldn't hurt if the President believed in personal liberty and voluntary exchange, either.  But in the end, it isn't who's President that really matters.

It’s the 535 members of Congress who pass laws and control spending that really matter.  Let’s review the record of the Incumbent Party, which is the party we have in Washington today.  Want the facts about that claim?  Check it out here.

  • The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. Congress had 234 years to get it right, but it can’t compete with Fed Ex and UPS, but the Postal Service wants more tax-dollar subsidies (and higher rates), just same.

  • Social Security was established in 1935. Congress had 74 years to get it right, but everyone knows it will be bankrupt without enormous increases in our taxes.  By the way, lots of us know how to fix Social Security.  Just make it an actuarial annuity program.  But wait; that wouldn't get the Incumbent Party re-elected, even though it would work.  Maybe that explains why we have the Social Security program we have?
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. Freddie Mac in 1970. Any questions about these two financial debacles?  If so, read about it here.  They played a central role in the Great Recession we are still in the grips of today.
  • The War on Poverty started in 1964. But even with $1 trillion of our money confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor," all we have gotten is a permanent class of “the poor” who want ever larger handouts.

  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. Everyone knows that without massive increases in taxes, both programs will be bankrupt in 20 years.
  • The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000employeeswith a budget of $24 billion a year, but we import more oil than ever before. Congress and its Incumbent Party had 32years to get it right, yet it is an abysmal failure.

Congress and its Incumbent Party has failed in virtually every "government service" it has shoved down our throats; meanwhile, the federal debt has ballooned to more than $12.5 trillion with no possibility of slower growth in sight.  Read about it here. This year's federal deficit alone will top a mind-boggling $1 trillion.  Simply stupefying.

Now, Congress and its Incumbent party want Americans to entrust health care to the federal government and its bureaucratic minions.  Simply unbelievable. 

Join the NBP; don’t vote for an incumbent, regardless of who it is or what she or he has done for you or your state.  If your politician did a great job, fine; thank them and then let’s move on.
If you like what’s going on in Washington, and you think voting out every incumbent is a bad idea, then keep voting for the same folks who are bringing you just what we've got.  But if you're fed up and think getting rid of long-term professional politicians is a great idea, then don't vote for an incumbent ever again.  Join the NBP.

Im in! Yes I know by the time I get old I will not have social security but by any means I did not know that Congress had so many times and years to get it right! Not only with Social Security but a plethora of other things! I agree we are the wealthiest country however we have a permanent "Poor" class in society
