A perfect example of the openness of the liberal mind. The same mindset embraced by the majority of Venezuelans years ago.

The only reasonable solution is to Vote out all Incumbents from both Parties & keep Voting out All Incumbents every Election cycle until those elected Stop listening to all the Lobbyists & Special Interests & start doing what's best for the greater good of all Americans

 

There is a lot to that. I am not happy with career pols. But remember, we elected a non-career pol as President last time. And sometimes I get the feeling that you are not happy with that.

 

"Special Interests" - I agree but, what about the Teachers Unions, the SPLC (often quoted here), SEIU, the tree huggers and the save the planet people? They all are supported by some folks. shall they cease to have influence?

They are the more strident end of the Dems. So why reward bad behavior?

 

Then we come to ideology, they are neoMarxists (as has been discussed here in depth) and that is hardy good for our nation.
