The problem: Voters

I'm just sick of everyone blaming one party or the other for all the problems in government. Don't you people realize that the problem is you?

If you vote strictly for one party or the other without regard for the integrity of the candidate, then you are the one putting and keeping a “bum” in office, regardless of which bum or which office.

When your officials refuse to negotiate, cooperate or meet deadlines, you need to keep track and vote accordingly in the next election.

I personally believe (like the Founders) that politics should not be a career!

Those elected should not serve more than two terms, and then they should return to their chosen professions without collecting a pension from the government. That in itself would solve many of the problems.

Second, there are no “breaks” until the business at hand is settled.

I could go on, but if you don't do your job, don't complain about others not doing theirs!
