Know your Congress person and don't automactically vote them in based upon their seniority.
That might be the best post in this thread. Every time I get into a debate over whatever president is in office I tell people that it would be better to change the 535 people in congress than to worry about the one in the White House.
I also read a report a few months ago that said around 75 percent of the people think congress is doing a bad job. It went on to say that around 52 percent of those people would vote for their congress person again. That makes it hard to change much.
Seams like once we the people give what, at the time, seams like a reasonable inch and "they" take the unreasonable mile we can only get that mile back one inch at a time.
No spelun and grammar is not my specialty. So please don't hurt my sensitive little feelings by teasing me about it.
