I would ask readers to consider the possibility that they are letting their political ideology cause them to commit blindly to a particular political party. Obviously the two ideologies are conservative and liberal. However, there is a continuum from far left to far right. I would contend that neither extreme is helpful. Neither ideology espouses the "absolute truth." Both have good ideas. What we need to do is find that common ground. But today, heels are locked. And I blame the current administration for fomenting a lot of that. Finger pointing is the modus operandi of the White House. No one in the current administration is responsible for anything that has gone wrong. There is always someone else to blame. Remember that when one points a finger at someone else, there are three fingers pointing back. We all agree that D.C. is broken, but the majority of people will continue to vote a strict party line even when it means sending back the same partisan, uncompromising people. It makes no sense. If you want change, you have to vote for change. If that means sending Nolan and Franken home, fine. Does anyone actually think that McFadden and Mills will singlehandedly change the world? There are 533 other folks in D.C. who "make things happen". But I believe that their economic ideas are sound. They know business. If we really want change we must be willing to cross party lines, when necessary, to achieve it. I would also ask liberals if they have paid any attention to the fact that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by Socialists? This Administration is not a "Democratic party" administration; it is Socialist. We can hold onto our ideologies but let's be Americans first. Vote for McFadden and Mills.
