Hoekstra has good political intentions with this legislation, however, I believe the effort to enact a recall option for federal officials (Congressmen and Senators) is unconstitutional, will fast track the destruction of our Republic, and will hurt our opposition more than it helps.
There is also another reason this legislation will prove to be ineffective. The proposed purpose is to hold members of Congress accountable for their actions, however, elections are held every two years, and if their behavior is bad enough, such as in the case of Congressman Massa, their political career is over.
If we want folks to be held accountable, than we would never enact a recall option for federal officials, because elections have consequences. Imagine if liberals across the Nation used a recall option when Congress was debating the surge and the Iraq War. We are not a Democracy, we elect individuals to represent us, and when their term is complete, we either reward them with another term our elect new representation.
That process has worked for over 200 years!
Congress is held accountable every 24 months. How often are the American people held accountable? Let us not forget, it is the American people that are saddling government run health care upon us, through their uninformed political nature, horrific electoral voters, and believing there is such a thing as a "moderate democrat".
Recalling federal officials is not a legitimate option or cure to our political or Constitutional problems, it will serve as an excuse for the laziest of our political system, and it will shift America into a "50% plus 1" Democracy, instead of a time tested Republic.
