Candidates are not the issue. Power centralized is the issue.Unfortunately there are no better candidates being put up by any party and it doesn't matter if it's local, state or federal elections, they all suck. People no longer run for office to make a difference, they run for office for power, control and money. The idea of public service doesn't exist in politics anymore, it's all about feathering your own nest and the nest of your party. Corruption exists everywhere. How many governors of Illinois are in prison right now? How many mayors of cities are in prison right now? These are all people who are voted into office by their constituents yet were crooks.
I don't know. I have met my representative face to face. I know that I do not like him. Ii know that I can talk to my state representative and senator far easier than I can talk to the guy who lives in Washington.And the idea that you can go "influence" a politician is childish. Violence or threats are immature. These people are elected collectively, just because you don't like it, doesn't give you the right to take them out on your own.

Today we have a monster loose and it is the most dangerous threat to our liberties that exists.
The IRS should take at least as big a cut as the defense department.
...and to make matters even worse, HONEST taxpayers are still going to be paying the same amount of taxes - cutting the IRS is doing NOTHING but enabling DISHONEST people to safely cheat on paying the taxes they should be paying anyway.
Because of all that, it is eminently stupid to continue to cut the IRS.

You certainly do make a government agency work better by forcing it to live within it's means.And just like when it comes to education, you don't make a government agency work better by slashing its budget.
