22. Doesn't it take two parties to have a fight?
Hell, they won't fight for themselves -- how are they going to have a fight with their base? It's not about fighting. They work for US. It's about saying get off your dead butt and fight for ME! Or I ain't rehiring you come election time.

It's really pretty simple. We are getting nothing from our politicians because we expect nothing. High time we started expecting something and making sure they get it.
