Leaders must solve problems — or else

In a divided Washington, our lawmakers have to work together to get things done, but they are not doing it. When lawmakers are more responsible to their party than they are to their constituents, we the people pay the price. Now there is something we can do to get our leaders to act. The next time candidates ask for a donation, we should tell them we will not donate to their campaign unless they agree to be a member of the No Labels Problems Solvers group and work across the aisle.

    The primaries are the culmination of the internal process by which political parties select which of their candidates will represent them in the general election. Why should people who refuse to identify with a major party have a say in the internal decision making process of one of the parties?

    All registered voters should be able to vote in the primaries. Most people who are registered as Independents are more informed and vote based what they have learned about each candidate. The upcoming election is a good example of why Independents should be allowed to vote in the primaries.
    What are you so afraid of Mr. Bacon?
