Albert Einstein had one definition of insanity that spoke of expecting a different result from the same question. Another definition is expecting a 'real' answer from a politician. What can you do to ensure that the American citizen is provided 'real' answers from our elected officials?

When will the USA protect their own borders instead of protecting the Korean border and fighting the wars in the Middle East? We need to bring our troops home to protect our citicens from the invasion of the illegal immigrants and drug cartels. I believe Obama is doing everyting he can to bring this country to it's knees and let the Muslims take over! I would love to see his real birth certicate from Kenya!

Happy Thanksgiving Senator! Please rest up and be ready to fight for what is right when you get back from the Holiday! You're one of the hopes for the future of the Republican party and I will be watching you. Are you going to make us proud?

LEADERSHIP
Mike Smith Posted 7 years ago
An editorial written by Eric Schmidt from Google had two very important observations about his 2010 trip to Davos.

First he said, “we heard real and widespread concerns about the direction of the American economy and, for the first time, the danger of stalemate in our political system."

He stated, "Access to knowledge has been democratized beyond imagination allowing the powerful to be held more easily to account."

These two statements about how the system works and the future of how the "powerful" will be held accountable call on us as citizens to demand access and interaction with Government leadership.

Will you as a Member of Congress open the process of your agenda and actions to the American people? You talk about bi-partisanship and how it isn’t working.

It is inconceivable that 300+ million people can be in such a mess caused by 535 Congressional Members who spend most of their time blaming the President and Congress (which is really themselves) for the current situation.

THIS PART IS FOR THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY: You have had the super-majority for over a year and things have not gotten better! If you want it fixed, fix it! If you want a bill enacted, enact it. If you want to stop deficits, stop them! If you want solutions make them. Do not wait for the almighty leadership of the President to set a policy that you don’t have the courage to enact with your power. If you believe in the program do it. Then on the other hand, if you don’t support something throw it out and move ahead with a better solution.

Eric Schmidt is a very smart man. He knows statistics and can see the direction that America is headed. It may be up to the head of Google and us, the 300+ million people to fix. Accountability is coming in the very near future and the only way that Congressional Members will be able to protect their jobs and rebuild the trust of the people is to start solving problems.

Will you invite input from typical Americans with great ideas to participate in open discussion on forums like this (that you or your staffs is not moderating) and start to earn back the trust of people like me?

I watched you on tv tonight after the first healthcare vote and you said that it won't work. Can you tell me what you know from being on the "inside" and what I should know? I don't want to see my promise of a great solution of healthcare reform become another thing that I can't afford.
