We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor?

The senate passed a monstrosity of a bill with more pork than an Iowa hog confinement. It's disgusting and shows the lack of gravitas on the part of the senators. If we are truly in trouble here, then get a bill through that fixes the problem, not adds to it. We have a bunch of self interested buttholes, Grassley and Harkin included, that have passed a bad bill. 451 pages? We need to hold these senators feet to the fire. In the last line of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote what is in the title of this post. These fake, phony and fraudulent politicians have forgotten the meaning of those words and in their actions have demeaned them. 

It is time for a new revolution, and one that does not include Obama or McCain. They both talk a good game and both voted for pork as well (Biden too). Where is the hope? Where is the change? It's all rhetoric. I call on my fellow Americans to kick these people out of office, as they have no honor and they have lost our trust. They do not deserve our respect or our vote. Let's get them out. Below is a list of Senators that voted no. Remember their names, as they have courage.
