    Our Government is simply doing too much at this point. They are grossly over-reaching on everything. Give me a "Do-Nothing Congress" over an Over-Reaching Congress anytime. I'm still waiting for just one brave politician to stand up and propose Legislation that would propose our Congress meet less often. Our Congress is just in session far too often in my opinion. The more they meet,the more damage they do to our nation. I really like how Texas does it. Their State Legislature meets for 90 Days a year every two months. They seem to be doing ok. In fact more States should follow their lead on that. Congress-Fatigue is at it's highest level i can remember. It's gotten so bad that most Americans are now begging them to hurry up and go on Recess. Less Government is the answer.

    I would love to have one politician with the balls to say, when asked about a problem:
    "Ya know, X is a serious problem But gov't cannot solve X. If we try we will only make things worse. There are plenty of ways the private sector and non-profits can address X and they will do so far more efficiently and effectively than gov't can. Thank you."

    I'd vote for that man forever.

    There are lots of politicians who say that. So you vote Republican? You're an idiot.

    Please show me one.

    And I assume you are agreeing with me at this point that Lopez bars the Federal gov't from intruding on educational issues.

    A variation of this has been going on recently in NJ as new governor Christie has been telling the legislature and citizens they've got huge, unsustainable X, Y, Z, and other homegrown problems that are strangling their state and must be corrected.

    Don't know if anyone's listening to him but he's definitely telling it like it is.
