Normally, I get several emails each day from some politician, either telling me how they are fighting for me or how they will fight for me if I help them get elected. I suppose it must be a successful pitch since it is so ubiquitous. But personally, the last thing I am interested in is an elected official, or prospective elected official, promising to fight more with the other side.
Very nice article, Mr. King. I would only add that when we "fire them all," we put in safeguards. Let's call them "the people's checks and balances" to ensure we can keep hiring and firing until we see a new politic emerge in our country rooted in solving problems, not making them.
