Also, the uneducated masses that is the American population sees John Doe (R) and John Doe II (D) on the ballot and votes for what their parents voted for or the name they are most familiar with. Voting people out sounds all well and good, but, I just don't have the confidence in our population that A) Isn't smart enough to figure it out B) Doesnt care enough to figure it out C) Continues to elect nuts like this lady

    That is why education reform is necessary. Our population is dumb.

We've lost that group in DC because media sensationalism has taken over politics. (To some extent it's also altered the public worldview.) The ones heard more and more are the radicals on both sides, so we end up with more of them in DC.
    Not all of the right. You still have the McCains and Romneys of the world running around. I don't agree at all about Dems and the military. Look at how much money we still spend on the military, with a Dem POTUS and Senate. The military has gotten out of control on spending. President Bush did the No Child Left Behind.
    The problem is everyone on Capital Hill is spending on everything they can without any conscience about it. It blows me away how much money spent by our gov't on the dumbest things. Great link about that here: Dr. Coburn Releases New Report on Wasteful Government Spending in 2011: "Wastebook 2011" - Press Releases - Tom Coburn, M.D., United States Senator from Oklahoma

    When I was a kid and you were unable to pass a grade...they <gasp> you got left back...today political correctness doesnt allow that...when you were given all the chances in the world to behave and you refused..they threw you OUT...now they have alternative schools they put all the whitlows in and it costs a FORTUNE and they dont learn squat and they are "GIVEN" diplomas...then every one is stunned there are so many dumbos running around....I asked the principle who was famous for alternative schools he was a Dr...i asked him why do you just GIVE these kids diplomas and you know that cant write a paragraph and have never read a book cover to cover...he said to give them a chance..and I said at what...
