I'm with Dog on this one.
You can't blindly vote "R" or "D" and expect it to be in the best interest of anyone.
You can't join the NRA, send in your membership dues and wait for them to suddenly reverse 50 years of bad decision making, sneaky back room deals, questionable spending practices and all around slimy behavior.
Everyone in a position of power is to blame for the state we are in. Everyone! The only way to reverse the trend is to vote out every incumbent and force change.
Set off the equivalent of a nuke on election day and vote out everyone who is currently in power. Force new blood into every available seat.
Because really, what have you got to lose that isn't already up for grabs?
