    Me? Scream and holler? LOL!! Sorry, but I don't scream and holler.

    But, tell me...do you want Congress to act responsibly? Or do you just want the left to have control?

    After the Democratic Party is given total control of Congress in the next election by the American people it will act responsibly.

    Do you really believe that?

    Seriously, though...why do they wait? Why don't they start now? Hmmm?

    If you have any influence withe GOP you might want to ask them that question, but that's up to to you.

    My votes in future elections will be influenced by what my representatives do after this next election, which I believe will give the Democratic Party total control of Congress.

    Me? I'm not a Republican. I don't have any influence with them...and I don't want any.

    But tell me...do you intend to vote for responsible representatives? Or will you vote for the usual bunch who keep our current Congress crappy?

    That is what the incrementation process is for.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
