    Speak for yourself.

    I know damned well I don't have the Congress I deserve.

    Instead of electing representatives to Congress, we should just have a lottery. If selected, you have to serve four years, then you go back to your normal life. I have a hunch they'd accomplish a hell of a lot more than our elected representatives do.

    Deserve?

    I see that entitlement brain farts are alive and well in the 21st century. You have the Congress you elected, regardless of whether or not you deserve it.

    We also have the best President money can buy.

    God help us...

    Also don't forget, roughly 40 percent of Congress is Democrat. Yeah, I suspect sinister59 is right. We have the best government money can buy.

    Did I already say, God help us?

    And yet come November 2012 all of you will vote for the same nitwits you did last year. Consider the definition of insanity.

    You are right, I might vote for the same nitwit, but since he has no chance of winning, it shouldn't matter. In fact, if he had a shot at winning I would deliberately choose someone else, because voting for anyone with a chance to win the Presidency is voting for someone who has already sold his soul.
