A good campaign slogan would be “A Vote For Common Sense.” Or, “A Vote For the Good of All Americans.”

Thanks for weighing in Carol. I’m glad you like the “clean house” phraseology. I will continue to use it during my campaign. :o)

I like the “clean house” phraseology. “Change” has been used and has been a disappointment. I realize a President can’t do as much as we’d like without the support of Congress, but the word still has connotations that aren’t as promising.

I know what you mean Frances. I am running as a no party preference candidate in California (CD-39) for the US House. My campaign has no money to speak of, but I do have a small core of faithful volunteers. Sometimes it feels like David, the shepherd boy going up against massive Goliath. The Republican incumbent has over 2 million in campaign funds. I just keep reminding myself that it only took courage and one stone between the eyes to take Goliath down, we have the courage we just have to find that one stone! I am hoping that one stone is the disappointment and disgust that people have for the current administration. Are they ready to be part of the solution? Will they have the courage to throw their vote in the direction of the Davids that are ready to battle the Goliaths? I sure hope so! Rocky is rock solid, he will take Goliath down!

Yes, it needs to be simple. Change worked so well the last time, too bad it has been abused. Personally, I don’t think Presidents, after having been elected, have as much power to make changes as we think. There is a lot of power and money controlling our government and fighting that is like a One Man war against a bunch of Goliath’s. “Clean Sweep” may be a good place to start.

@ Frances . . . what about “metamorphose” :o) just kidding . . . got to keep everything at a 7th grade education level when marketing! What about “evolve,” or transform. Personally, I simply say, “Its time for a clean sweep, time to clean House and that includes the White House!”

I believe Rocky Anderson has the right ideas for change. However, when campaigning, I think “Change” is a loaded word. I voted for “Change” in the last election and got nothing but more of the same and then some. I don’t believe Change is that easy. Another slogan needs to be found to win over people who are very angry and disappointed in the results of our 2008 election. Change we need, but the word is almost dirty.
