It’s about to happen again. Nation-wide, Congress has only a 10% approval rating yet we are about to RE-ELECT 90% OF THE INCUMBENTS! How can this be? The only explanation: 90% of us approve of our own representative but want everyone else to elect someone different.
If this continues there will NEVER be meaningful change in Washington. Things will always be the same; right up until our country collapses under the weight of debt and corruption.
Fellow Americans, we must do something different now. You can only vote for/against, and possibly replace, one of the 435 members of the House. Is your representative really worthy of being sent back to Washington? If he/she has been there for 8 or more years it’s very likely he/she is part of the problem. If one of your choices in November is a 8+ year incumbent, seriously consider voting for the challenger. But you say, “The other candidate is a member of the other party and he’s pro this or that.” A freshman representative of either party will do less harm than an entrenched incumbent. In two years it will be easier to elect someone different and the country gets a new congress now!
