Writing on politics

From time to time I have considered writing some political post and then reconsidered and decided against it. In today's political insanity, anything I write about that happened yesterday is already old news and there is something deserving of more attention that has happened or is about to happen.

One of the things that I think about is -- How are we going change Congress to the point of being able to function as it was designed to function?
And which comes first -- does America have to become less party oriented to change Congress or does Congress become more interested in the good of the country and less party loyal?

As it is now, the system isn't working and won't work with our current Congress.
If I keep it close to home, my Congressman is a do nothing, suck up to the party kind of guy. He ran on the platform of changing Washington and has won because he is the Republican candidate for the district and the district will always vote for the Republican candidate, and he will do whatever the party leadership tells him to do. He never has a town hall meeting and really doesn't care what his constituents think.

Winston Churchill once said that America will do the right thing -- after they've tried everything else!
Hopefully, that time will come soon.

These bozo's are taking 'trying everything else' to a new level.
