    I say no because both sides want this done their way and voters have short attention spans and short term outrage.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You may be correct. Guess I will be one of the exceptions come time to vote. I would hope that the majority of Americans will be tired of the same old WO politics and actually demand something from the elected officials. I voted yes, because I don't plan to forget.

    So are a lot of other people.However will that matter to most people when the next election comes around? Voters have short term memory and short term outrage and when this issue is brought again at the next elect most people simply will not care about it because it will have been replaced with another issue.

    I think it takes a special kind of shallow personality to be an independent voter. It doesn't matter what the parties do; if you aren't completely and utterly indifferent to the debate about human vulnerability versus human selfishness you really aren't qualified to be an independent.
