I can't imagine that any politician would hope his or her constituents would forget the deeds that most seriously impacted their lives. Any Texas congressperson has to know that they face ouster if they try goring the voters' favorite ox ... I plan to be far more active than I have in the past, reminding both Republican and Democrat that we are watching.
"The gun has been called the great equalizer ... It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." --Ronald Reagan
