(CNN) - Most people following the primaries are a lot more excited about the races coming up next week than those taking place on Tuesday.

Will Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln lose in Arkansas? Can Sen. Arlen Specter survive his first Democratic primary? Will newcomer Rand Paul upset the establishment and win Kentucky's Republican Senate race? Will the anti-incumbent fervor take hold of voters and wipe out Congress as we know it?

Those questions can wait.

    The time to clean up both The House and the Senate is upon us. Don't vote for the party! It is time the people sent a message to Washington DC we reject politics as usual.

    Fire All incumbants!

    Vote Congress out, “you are fired” if they are in. Vote them out this fall no matter what party they belong to, and in the next election and every election going forward until they become the servants of the people once more.
    This November tell Congress "You Are Fired!"

    The best thing that could happen to this country would be for every current democrat to lose the election. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Obama have done more than enough damage to the foundations of the nation.

    Absolutely! With a less than 20% Congressional approval rating nationwide, we should vote them all out - regardless of party affiliation. Maybe the next group will get the message and truly represent their constituents and do the people's will, not blindly vote along party lines.

    With their quest to destroy our president, obstruct anything and everything regardless of it's merits, I cannot understand how anyone can support any republican incumbent.
    They have failed miserably in representing the American people, putting country first, sacrificing us for their undying support for big business.
