08:33 am - A Letter from Voinovich
So today, I received a response to Sen. George V. Voinovich.

In it, he thanked me for my letter regarding the definition of marriage.

And then proceded to tell me that I am wrong.

Worse, he explained it using phrases like, "I believe" and "I am of the opinion".

I'm sorry. Did I elect you to have opinions or beliefs, or did I elect you to vote the way I would like you to? Remember that whole deal? We elect you, you represent us? I don't remember anyone suggesting you were allowed to vote willy-nilly on your own agenda.

And this man is the chariman of the Senate Ethics Committee.

I will scan and post the letter as soon as I receive one from Sen. DeWine, so as to complete my collection.

Write your asshole congressmen, and vote in November. You may register here.

Sorry to disagree ...

I don't disagree with you views on marriage, however, let me tread the land mines and say that I believe I do vote for representatives because I want them to use their judgment.

Here's how it works in my mind ... of course ... this is theory.

I can't got to DC to vote on each item myself. So, I select someone whose values seem to reflect my own and someone who seems capable of rational legislative duties. I elect him to go to DC and make judgments for me and my family. It's a republic.

What I absolutely hate, is how politicians instead seem to fear their constituents and are paralyzed on issues until they can see the results of polls. Hey, Mr. Representative, I picked you. You go listen to the debate and make decisions. If you suck at your job I will remove you from office.

That's my 2 cents on how it should work.
