One of the many frustrations citizens are feeling about Congress is their inability to effect change. Their vote only affects a small minority of the congressional population.

An alternative might be a nationwide campaign insisting that the leadership of both parties, in both houses, submit their resignations. This is the only way that a leadership change can be effected because of the rules of each house which are aimed at maintaining the status quo.

The Occupy movement could be the catalyst that would get such a campaign under way.
