    What a great way to remove a politician from office . Hopefully this will work and swing to the other side.

    I'm not concerned the least bit...if enough recalls take place and are effective, states and congress will pass laws making them illegal. (on constitutional grounds I'm sure).
    There are two types of people who carry concealed weapons...Responsible ones and Irresponsible ones...which are you...

    Make crimes against the Constitution a treasonable, hanging offense ... and by hanging each and every one of them that gets caught doing it. That just might do it. Anything short of that is going to be ignored.

    ^^^Problem I see with this^^^^^^^^^^^

    Is, I don't think too many politicians are going to jump on board this train!

    But that's what makes it sound so good.
    It would work, and they wouldn't want that.

    Judging from the comments to this article, I'd say some people are very angry that a sufficient number of people object to to force the legislature to reconsider their position.

    I couldn't believe the number of people saying "they've been voted in, now sit back and shut up! It doesn't matter if they passed a law contrary to your views, they are smarter than you are!"

    Tough. Then we've got to push it through ... with them, or in spite of them. So long as they continue to see the People as the enemy, they are (the enemy, that is).
