"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
So here were are there is no way Reid or McConnell should hold office, but Americans keep voting them back in. Why? The two party system is rigged that way - AND GUESS WHAT? The two party system isn't going to change it.
People continue to beg for a term limit law in Congress. That's laughable. It really is. Why? Because people continue to vote overwhelmingly for the incumbent! Reid and McConnell wouldn't be there if people would vote them out. The People already have the power to impose term limits by simply not voting for anyone who has served more than one or two terms. But the People can't be bother, they want Congress to impose the limits on themselves and as a result we get Reid and McConnell and Schumer, Pelosi and Boxer, Bachman, McCain, Franks, Jackson and a whole host of career politicians who suck the freedom out of the republic.
Thank you. (phew). I feel better now.

Reid is a scum bag but his tentacles run deep and like any cancer he will be extremely difficult to get rid of
