Yesterday, the last of the recall elections in Wisconsin were decided. All told, more than $35 million was spent to overturn two seats in the Wisconsin statehouse. That was just for the campaigns. I don’t know how much the state of Wisconsin spent to hold the elections. The total for the nine recall elections was double the amount spent on all 116 Wisconsin legislative races in the last election. Mind you, that was just for the state legislature. Given the historic unpopularity of Congress, and of politicians of all stripes, I propose that we recall all elected officials at every level everywhere in the country. Can you imagine the enormous amount of money that will suddenly flow into every corner of this nation? Corporations, which have been sitting on enormous stashes of cash, but have refused to hire people, will likely have no qualms about pouring money into those races. The political parties and lobbyists will throw record wads of cash into the fray to protect their turf. That’s money pumped directly into the economies of every city, county and state in the land. Recession over. And best of all, we might actually get rid of a fair number of the most annoying politicians. It’s a win-win.
