GOOOH is a non-partisan effort that is organizing for the 2010 congressional elections with the goal of replacing all 435 members of the House of Representatives.
They have a plan and they are working on it right now. They need 500,000 citizens to join in the effort, which involves signing-up and organizing in your community with the aim of holding meetings to select representatives for the Goooh slate of candidates.
As stated in their Mission Statement:
GOOOH is a new system that will allow "we the people" to select true representatives, not choose between a Democrat and a Republican. If we continue to elect career politicians who represent their party, the special interests that fund them, and themselves, nothing will change. GOOOH is a non-partisan process that will allow us to effect the change we all know we need.
GOOOH will allow you to:
1. Help select your Representative - while being considered yourself
2. Hold your Representative accountable
3. Replace career politicians - with true representatives
4. Take the money out of the process
The GOOOH process allows Americans of every political leaning to participate in the selection of their District's Representative while being considered themselves. Through GOOOH's Candidate Selection Sessions you and your peers will select the candidate in your district who best represents your district's views. Even if you do not wish to become your district's representative you will want to participate in the process and have a direct say in who is chosen to represent your district. GOOOH will fund a single national campaign to promote the 435 candidates (one from each district) who are selected to run against the party politicians. Because GOOOH is a process for selecting representatives (not an agenda-based party platform) we expect a person left of center to be selected in San Francisco and one right of center in Colorado Springs -- but it will be up to the GOOOH members in each district to decide.
So, what are the chances for GOOOH’s success? It seems NOW may be the time to give it a try.
A new Rasmussen poll found that:
If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators.
…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.
While Democrats have become more supportive of the legislators, voters not affiliated with either major party have moved in the opposite direction. Today, 70% of those not affiliated with either major party would vote to replace all of the elected politicians in the House and Senate. That’s up from 62% last year.
Of course, the question is, why do people keep voting for the same candidates over and over again, if they are so unhappy. For example, the people of Massachusetts could have replaced John Kerry last year, but they overwhelmingly put him back in office.
According to Rasmussen, half the people surveyed believe the elections are rigged!
…more than 90% of Congress routinely gets reelected every two years. It’s a shock when any incumbent loses. One explanation for this phenomenon frequently heard in Washington, D.C. is that “people hate Congress but love their own congressman.”
Voters have a different perspective, and 50% say 'rigged' election rules explain high reelection rate for Congress.
