27. It's not a battle; no one has insulted you. I just disagree.
I understand your point of view, and recognize some validity to it, it IS GOOD to give money to local candidates, but even that won't work if you don't "ride herd" on them and that's what is needed at the national level too. And what good will come of your local candidates who get into office if the federal level screws them?

I'm just saying there is a near infinitude of things that can happen if we accept responsibility for making them happen.
