Anybody starting to see a theme here? I guess I'm just not very sanguine about the future at the moment. Remember the Republicans who were going to clean up Washington. What happened to them? I guess those old time religious people who took vows of poverty might have had a point.
It all seems to come back to the idea that people shouldn't be allowed to vote for anyone that they don't know personally. We should return to a simple representative system where each level elects the level above, and they can elect a replacement at any time. No money for elections. Just a simple raising of hands...or not.
