Evicting the House of Representatives

Marco and south Naples residents join movement ...

How GOOOH will change Congress

How the Get Out of Our House ...

Some people want to change the world, others, including members of a national group with a growing local effort, just want to change Congress — at least for now.

GOOOH, pronounced go, stands for Get Out of Our House and is a process to replace all 435 members of the House of Representatives with candidates that represent the people, not big money and special interests, supporters say.

Marco and South Naples are among the GOOOH groups in Florida’s District 14, currently represented by Congressman Connie Mack.

Mack and his press office continue to decline comment on the idea to oust him and his peers.

The South Naples and Marco GOOOH groups are joining efforts with Naples Tea Party and members of 9.12, which stands for the day after 9/11 when the country was more united than ever, for a rally on Marco Island.

The rally is scheduled 1 p.m., Saturday, beginning at Veterans’ Community Park on Elkcam Circle.

Though the three groups have some differences, they plan to converge based on what they have in common.

“I see a lot of synergy in what we are doing,” said Keith Flaugh, who leads the Marco GOOOH group.

Cheryl Couture of the Southwest Florida 9.12 couldn’t be reached for comment.

Flaugh said 9.12 is similar to the Tea Party and GOOOH by working to combat complacency among citizens. The difference with 9.12, he said, is that the group is more focused on education than changing the election process the way GOOOH plans to do.

He said many people are members of all three groups.

Barry Willoughby, who leads the Naples Tea Party, which is somewhat more conservative than the non-partisanship of GOOOH, is focused on what unites the groups and their individual members.

“GOOOH, along with many other groups are united in the cause of fighting for individual liberty as prescribed by the United States Constitution. And with liberty, comes personal responsibility,” said Willoughby.

The GOOOH movement requires such responsibility from citizens, as it is based on creating an election process where members of each district are directly involved in selecting their candidates.

Voters and candidates take a 100-question survey to share their values and principles on key issues. The answers to those online questions will be used to hold those who are voted into office accountable, Flaugh said.

If the representatives change their minds or vote differently than they said they would in the questionnaire, then it will be up to “70 percent of voters to let them off the hook,” Flaugh added.

Bruce Novark, also of the Marco GOOOH, said it will take convincing the people of the logic for the member of Congress to change their answers to a question.

“They can’t just change their view because someone offered them money,” Novark said.

Marco’s group grew to about 75 participating members and the South Naples group, led by Lois Kehoe, also has about 75 members, Flaugh reported.

Participants will be asked to donate $100 once the GOOOH membership grows to 500,000 members nationwide.

“That will be $50 million to start the National GOOOH campaign in May,” said Novark.

GOOOH, which intends not to fall into the trap of becoming a third political party, members say, will need to select their candidates to be on the ballot in June or July.

Flaugh said a lot of people ask him how the group, which according to GOOOH.com currently has 66,204 members, can make it in time.

“We can’t lose. We’re educating people on how to take back their House, just as the Constitution intended,” he said.

If there aren’t enough members for the 2010 election, the group plans to set its sights on the 2012 election.

More about the GOOOH process will be presented in advance of the rally at an informal meeting scheduled 3 p.m., Wednesday, at Marco Presbyterian Church, located at 875 W. Elkcam Circle.

GOOOH Florida Director Vincent G. Smith, retired from the U.S. Air Force, said there is a GOOOH group in each of Florida’s 25 districts, although some are loosely organized at this stage.

Smith said he’s been a member of GOOOH for eight months and sees no other way to get the “people’s House back in the people’s hands.”

At a recent meeting on Marco held earlier this month, one of the primary concerns among those just learning about GOOOH was whether it might be an election spoiler. GOOOH supporters replied that it’s time to get out of that paradigm.

“The entire country realizes that we cannot continue this spending spree, and electing the incumbents who brought us to the brink of destruction is insane,” said Smith.

What happens to all of the money donated to the "GOOOH Cause" when it fails?

Remember GOOOH folks,you're about to team up with one of the most extreme groups of whack cases I've seen in all of my years on this Earth.

That's right,the "Tea Party" movementarians are NOT the group that you think they are,they're bigoted,racist,dishonest and not very bright.

Well,anyway,good luck with that!

One more piece of advice,save any money's donated to your cause,when it sinks like the "Tea Party",the unwary people who don't have a clue as to what they're about to get themselves into by teaming up with the "Tea Party" will be looking to get their money back.

Guaranteed!

The liberals seem to get all worked up when someone else protest. The funny thing is that most of the people in the “Tea Party” served in the military, actually pay their taxes, and try to raise their children to have some sense of responsibility.

While the liberals live off the government, protest against the military, and teach their children that you do not have to work for anything the government will provide them with everything. As Al Sharpton said, “We voted for Socialism”.

The liberals refuse to debate the subject. They continue to paint anyone who disagrees with them as racist, uneducated, etc.

If you look at your friends you will find that the conservatives are more compatinet, do more for the community, and donate more to causes than the liberals.

The truth of the matter is the liberals control most of the media. They do not actually have to do anything to help people; all they have to do is say that they are doing something.

ajm3s writes:

Elitism in its purest form is one of "I know better", that is why conservatives and Tea Party members are deemed idots by liberals.

Do I bow to the most base and childish sentiment; "It takes one to know one"?

Never, I'll stick to the issues and happily defend them, as well as other conservatives and Tea Pary members (the angry mob of racists etc?).

The more liberals demean those they do not agree with, the more they lose credibility. Check out MSNBC its a hoot.

If the Tea Party members left their half wit haters at home and didn't parade them on TV, I might agree that real concerned folks were in the Tea Party. Too bad they aren't smart enough to know that they ar being used. You play with folks who roll in the dirt and it isn't long before you become as dirty as they are. These people are racist and may be the NEW face of the Republican party.

MarcoAvenger writes:

Boy Fossil you seem to have a great deal of pent up hostility. People are tired of our leaders not listening to us. This whole healthcare thing is going to blow up in the democrats face. It is my thought that all the facts of the healthcare bill will not come out until after the midterm elections. The public will be left to hold the bag as all the undocumented (Illegal Aliens) are allowed to use the system. We will also learn that the government cannot pay for the program without raising taxes. The Federal Government will probably have to institute a National Sales Tax. I am not against reforming the health system, it needs to be done, but this is not the correct way to do it. In the end members of the Republican Party and probably people who participate in the “Tea Party” movement will have to fix things. It would probably be expected that we would rub your nose in the mess your side has caused. However, we will roll up our sleaves and fix things. Then we will be able to have 20 years of prosperity until we forget and elect a majority of Democrats again.

Fossil, is that hate speech? If you look at the other hand it is actually the liberal media painting fanatics with a broad brush to an incident (that is yet to be shown or confirmed by public comment on a major news outlet).

The intent is to discredit the Tea Party or those who oppose Obamacare and government control as racist, haters etc.

I can only speak for myself, but I am educated and recieved high honors from high school through graduate school. I just registerd to vote at the tender age of 54 years. I co-founded a small company and I am in awe of the direction this country has taken since the 2nd Bush years and now through Obama with an agenda that I believe is Progressive and borders on socialism.

Yes, I am angry, violent no. Engaged and reviewing the issues, yes; screaming racist epithets, no.

I will not engage in hate speech but I will not tolerate the erosion of basic principles that guided our Founding Fathers. I detest the Progressive Movement since its beginning in the early 20th century. The need for government to shackle the poor and abused with assistance that leads to a nanny state.

Listen to the Progressives, they are now using the "moral" argument to sell their wares. Economic justice, social justice, environmental justice all in an effort for redistribution of whatever there is to distribute to those the government deems needing.

How do you motivate people to succeed under that model? Is charity now under the purvue of the government?

We are a people of immigrants. Those who come now and those who came in the past, came to seek a better life based on effort not stature.

So please. Have we forgotten our way?

Are the Tea Party members racist? I don't know, but I do know that those people on TV holding up the signage with racial speech and images are trying real hard to convince many people they are racist. I also know that I saw Republican Congressmen and women on a balcony encouraging treason to the same group of nitwits. So now you can tell me how wrong I am and how insensitive I am to those who only want to be left alone. Shadow, I sincerely hope that you never need help. It would be a wonderful world if all of us were as fortunate as you are. It must be hard for you to be a Christian. Some of you say you beleive in reform yet you do not complain when your heros fail to give it to you over eight years. Tell us why it's ok to invade a nation that did nothing to us and then spend our treasure on caring for their citizens. We pulverized their society and commit ourselves to rebuild it yet, we shouldn't spend a dime for our own? Is that what you mean by "redistribution" of wealth? Give it all to people who live elsewhere, but nothing for our own. Perhaps that's all about the guilt we hold. Like going to confession only to continue our faulty behavior the following week.

So please. Have we forgotten our way?

How do you motivate people to succeed when the economic model most popular in this country is the boom and bust model?

How does this system benefit our country as a whole,which is what are laws are designed to do,and how do we respond as human beings to the suffering wrought from a system designed to benefit the wealthy,creating economic refugees out of many of our fellow citizens as a result of their self-serving greed?

What do you suggest we do for the people who suffer from decisions made by people who don't take any interest at all in the people who fall through the cracks when the economy tanks from no fault of their own?

You know those people who scoff at those effected by poverty,you're one of them.

How do you suppose we should respond to the millions of fellow Americans who feel the crippling effects of an economic downturn that was spurred by the greed of those at the top of the economic ladder?

Should we simply sit back and wait for those individuals not fortunate enough to have a large bank account to die,is that what you're suggesting?

Is that your answer for those "Losers" and "Good-for-nothing's" in the system?

How people can draw the conclusion that a guy busting his butt for his family at a job that gets sent overseas is somehow at fault for that situation coming about,is absolutely moronic.

Those individual's who harbor this sentiment toward their own neighbors are simply selfish fools who can't recognize the real damage that's created within our country when the policies and laws are designed to perpetuate the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

So,no,perhaps you're not a bigoted racist,nor a violent reactionary,but,there's one thing for sure,you're a selfish cretin of a person when you refuse to see the suffering of those who's input had very little to do with the decision to outsource their livelihood or eliminate their job during a time when there's only one job opening for every five unemployed workers.

When you value your own prosperity over your fellow citizens you have removed yourself from gaining any respect for your opinions and ideas.

To top it all off,you're blind to the reasons why people loath you and your emotionally dysfunctional response to the plight of those who had little to do with an economy that is designed to favor those with the means to participate.

Victims of a system designed to maintain the flow of wealth to the top,while only allowing a few paltry crumbs to fall for the masses to fight over at the bottom.

If this is the way the "Tea Party" thinks it's going to win a majority,they should wake up now and realize they are in the minority and from the sound of their plans they will remain there for the foreseeable future.

For those "Tea Party" Patriflops who espouse Christian beliefs,greed and gluttony are TWO of the seven deadly sins,so,what are you going to do now?

I agree with your statement except, I do not believe I am a selfish cretin who does not see the suffering. I do see the ravages from job loss, I was once employed by a large manufacturer and saw the boom and bust of capital equipment manufacturing throughout the late 70's thru the late 90's.

I watched as the Japanese make inroads into capital equipment manfacturing. But the Japanese were creating better products in some markets. They were competitive, they woke us up.

Were jobs lost absolutely, that is why I left to start our own company, because we believed we can do better.

Am I greedy for having a dream, am I gluttonous for wanting to succeed without boundaries?

Actually, I was scared but I saw it as the best option in front of me at the time.

Why is government taking my money to give it to someone else, whether it is a bailout for Wall Street or Green cars made in a Scandinavian county as in a Stimulus package.

I cannot answer all your questions as to morality, because I do not frame the Tea Party as Christians, I simply got up one day to attend a Town Meeting in which our congressman decided it was now time to show how government can take care of you, the downtrodden, the abused and the ill-advised. Our congressmen hearalded the need to tax the wealthy so they can pay their fair share.

Sounds good, sounds like the moral thing to do. I have one major problem, we have a Bill of Rights and a Constitution that protects the right of individuals.

If you peer deep into the writings of our Founding Fathers there is a disdain for centralized and/or government power. They believe power is best in the hands of the people.

Where we have a fundamental difference, is I believe charity given freely vs that is forced and redistributed based on needs determined by beaurocrats. Again, I like to determine where my money is spent. And I think you do, I wish to limit government to aiding the truly downtrodden

I will end this with a quote from Benjamin Franklin (himself a small business owner),

"We should make the poor uncomfortable and kick them out of poverty."

You speak of greed and gluttony as two of the deadly sins. They are indeed sins of man upon man, but I submit to you they are the modus operendi of the government. Last time I checked the rules the IRS and Treasury, Social Security and all departments do not include the Commandments or list the deadly sins as a guideline for benefits.

It is the ability to "make it" that gives people the drive to succeed, with the potential to fail.

I don't fault anyone who has the means and the drive to follow their dreams,only one problem with that,in order to have a successful business the economic climate needs to provide enough demand for the product you make or sell.

In fact,Banks are clamoring for borrowers,so much so that they're colluding with credit agencies to change the rules of the game so those individuals who are no longer credit worthy,will now have a new credit score,a better credit score.

This should bring borrower's back into the Bank's,the Bank's NEED this to happen in order to stay in business.

Your government is taking your money and giving it to someone else all the time,we give Israel hundreds of billions in aid a year.

I don't hear anyone from the "Tea Party" complaining about that,although,they'll scream to the rooftops if our government decides it's necessary to help OUR country and OUR citizens,it's pathetic.

Yes,that statistic is the reality,some people are refusing to recognize the severity of our current employment deficiencies,they do so at the risk of deepening the problem,perhaps we should simply allow them to fall onto welfare,there's a great idea,NOT!

Is that the route you're suggesting we take?

How do you figure those unemployed citizen's should go about avoiding this lovely situation?

One should take into consideration the circumstances they face TODAY,not when you were laid-off.

Comparing when you took the hit to today's unemployed is simply disingenuous,I'm sure the situation today is MUCH worse than when you joined the ranks of the entrepreneur.

How can people honestly make a comparison with past economic downturns when admittedly THIS ONE has been much worse for this country,an economic situation that hasn't been statistically repeated since the Great Depression?

Yet some think that "Pulling yourself up by the bootstraps" will be as equally challenging as when you faced financial hardship,sorry,that frame of mind won't hold water,today's economic crisis has been considerably more severe then any other economic downturn that our generations could possibly remember.

Instead of vilifying those individuals who lost their jobs through no fault of their own,why not vilify those who deny the unemployed the basic necessities for their families survival?

I agree,welfare is slavery and getting off the roll's is MUCH harder,because the recipient has even less resources to find a job.

How do we as a country deny our fellow citizen's who did everything right,went to school,landed a job with the skills they perfected and supported their families,employing fiscal restraint when necessary,only to be kicked out the door because the CEO found a country where exploiting the labor force is acceptable.

In the end,you know that you'll vote the incumbent's in your party back in office anyway,all of the "throw the bum's out" talk is just that coming from the 'Tea Party",just talk.

Titeanbite

I do not disagree with many of the points you lay out, but the United States is a very dynamic country. In fact, many companies moved operations to countries with lower labor costs to better compete in the marketplace.

When we started the business, we did not pick the date, the date picked us. We were fed up with the ups and downs, of whether we were going to be laid off this time. So two of us made the decision to move on and thought we could do better.

In fact, we knew the margins in the industry and basically became the low cost manufacturer actually competing with the company we left. We survived because we lowered the cost of our services and were able to better compete. Our customers are no different than those who run a household, why should they pay more if they have an alternate source?

We had much lower overhead, definitely worked harder and eventually we built a reputation in the industry where we could attract all the major clients. And yes we became very innovative.

We did not lower wages, because in order to maintain our standing in the industry, it was imperative that we hire the best we could find and provide, yes, competitive wages to attract them.

I did not mean to bore you, but it is small business which is the workhouse of our economy and they are being trounced upon with government regulations. I cannot predict the outcome of the recent passage of Obamacare on employers but it does not reduce costs. So where do the jobs go? Just more pressure for companies to compete in the global market.

And in all likelihood, another job lost. (because China has no Obamancare)

The only entity creating jobs is the Federal Government, but that cost is paid by you (employees) and me (ex-employers).

That is why I do not diminish your disdain for CEO pay etc. but to have a war between the haves and the have nots does not lead to jobs where eventually tax revenue is derived.
