Join Goooh

Goooh stands for “Get Out Of Our House”, it is pronounced “go”. This is a non-partisan group thats goal is to evict all 435 members of the house and replace them with normal, everyday American citizens. This group is trying to get rid of the “career” politicians like, Speaker Pelsoi, and Senator Ried, along with thier Republican counter parts. Goooh is a group that is trying to help the people control politics again instead of the carreer politicians.

I encourage any interested to join Goooh at their website.

  1. the idea behind Goooh is something like this: get all members to decide in small groups on someone to represent them on the next level, and then a small group on that level will choose someone to move on and after this happens enough times to have a fairly small group, they will select a nominee for representative. All condidates will have to show their views via a questionaire and will be required to stick to them to have a chance for renomination by Goooh. that’s at least the basic idea, I think I have all the specifics right.

  2. Athenian Democracy returns eh?
    It’s unworkable. It didn’t work in the French Revolution either.

    The upside of career politicians is that they become experts on subject areas that ordinary folks would be lost in. Do you really want a bunch of farmers and factory workers deciding the finer points of intellectual property law, military financing, constitutional issues and so on?

    You want a country as big and complex as the US run by a bunch of amateurs and yahoos?

    • Simon I don’t know what to say to this comment.
      America was founded on the principal that we would be ruled by the people, not by an “Expert Noblility Class” Our government effects “ordinary folks” so it should be run by ordinary folks.
      Another question. Are we doing better or France? I believe that America is doing much better than France right now, so who says it wouldn’t work.
      Yes I want this country to be run by it’s citizens not by career politicians.

      The Preamble starts “We the people.” Not “We the career politicians”

      • Which is all very idealistic. But such idealism rarely works in practise. Look at what happened in revolutionary France when they went too far with noble ideals.

        Just as I wouldn’t want my brain surgeon to be picked by lottery, I would not want my representatives picked the same way. Being a successful actor in government is not a simple job that anyone can do. It requires great intelligence and capability and random people do not have that.

        The United States is a modern multi-cultural and hugely complex country. It would be barbaric to entrust it to random people to run.

  3. There are a lot of problems and corruption among politicians, and abuses of power. But that doesn’t mean that random people would do better. Career politicians at the very least know what they’re doing. We are doing “better” in many senses than France. And we have a system of career politicians.

    • Recaiden, I have some doubts about Goooh, but the system would not leave things just to chance. Members will be voting for the Goooh nominee, and often knowing the people they vote for and against.
