Remember April 8,2011 when former Shrieker of the House Nancy Pelosi, exercised undue strain on the work of her plastic surgeon (she was speaking) and said "elections shouldn't matter as much as they do?" The idea was that the Republicans who share the same goals, ideals, and motivations as the leftist Democrats should retake their party from the nasty lovers of liberty. I don't believe elections matter as much as they should!
Maybe elections matter more when new members are elected. When an incumbent is ousted, there is at least the possibility that the new congressman will be motivated by a passion for liberty and keeping the federal government in check. It would appear that after some excessive number of terms in Washington D.C., congressmen begin to see the federal government as the solution to all our problems. It also appears that they get comfortable legislating favors. I wonder if they realize that they cannot give to one unless they first take from another.
