vote for best human
It's time to clean house. The current Congress has become incapable of governing, incapacitated by party bias and rhetoric, and completely disinterested in fulfilling their ultimate task of carrying out the shared vision and goals of their constituents - the very values and ideals which we used to elect them.
In 2014, let's put a stake in the ground and make a commitment to vote for NONE of the current congressional incumbents. Vote for the best non-incumbent available within or outside of our parties. Re-register if needed to vote for the best person for the job regardless of party. Keep it simple and just make an educated vote for the best human. What a concept!
Sure, there will be a learning curve, but it will be better than the ridiculous, embarrassing paralysis we have now. Refreshing, even, to have a bunch of energized members of Congress who may actually care about their responsibilities and not be mired in the muck of politics.
