Look before you vote
Seen in Grapevine: "We elect people to office to run our nation responsibly. More often than not, they yield to the wishes of big money and special interests. Democrats are no better than Republicans. Why do we keep returning them to office?" Right -- and that's exactly why I noticed the letters to the editor from Richard Davis in The Daily Times. Now I know to look for more information about him before I decide how to vote.
****On Behalf of Dr. Davis thank you for your comment. The point is that the outrageous amount of money (Over $4 Million) that will be spent on a congressional seat that pays about $175,000 a year is ridiculous. Money will pour in from all sides and every special interest group imaginable as the First District's Seat will be one of the most hotly contested in the country.
In light of the recent happenings in Massachusetts and the voters trying to send a message, not much will change. Obama will still try to push his agenda through, Congress will still spend trillions of dollars that does not exist while getting nothing done. Electing a Libertarian such as Dr. Davis will send a real message to Washington the rest of the Country that the two party duopoly must end and real workable ideas need to be enacted.
