For the past ten years or so, I haven’t voted as often as I should. I decided about the First of October that had to change. The political philosophy in Washington is a travesty, an insult to anyone who can hold a thought in their head for over 17 seconds. I resolved to vote straight Democrat until the situation is resolved. It is my duty to my fellow citizens. Legislative policy should ideally be to help the most people. Instead, legislative policy is to help the most dollars. I consider it a moral imperative to reverse this trend. How can we say we are civilized and continue along this path?
It looks like the Democrats picked up the House but made no progress in the Senate. It looks like not much will happen for the next two years except a lot of partisan fighting. I guess it could be worse.
