At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Democrat's Bain

It's difficult when you have to face your constituents and explain what you've been doing to them -- I mean, for them. There are some representatives such as Ken Calvert (R-CA) who represents me and California's 44th Congressional District who are not worried. Why? He voted against ObamaCare, against Gun Control and against everything I'm against - and for more or less everything I'm in favor of. He reflects the views of his constituents who were smart enough to keep the Republican incumbent.

Now the people who put a Democrat into the House of Representatives only to learn that he's not pursuing their best interests (what a shock) - they're angry.

I hope they give 'em what they deserve! A one way ticket out of Washington.

My mistake for not following sooner, was going over me old blog and found you there. Thanks for the follow. And I have to agree with Opus, they are signing their own political death paneled warrant.
