  •  Who do these guys really REPRESENT? (1+ / 0-)

    Voters Do care about how their Senators actually REPRESENT their constituents, which has nothing to do with gun control.

    If it's spelled out for voters in simple 30 second spots, the hot button betrayals where republicans have failed to REPRESENT a simple majority of their district's population, and paint the GOP successfully as a party of voter betrayal, we can accelerate the stampede of independents and disenchanted or open minded republicans.

    The fact is, too many politicians in the republican party have failed to represent the people of their states and districts, on any number of issues, preferring to follow the siren call of the lobbyists and their sponsors. These GOP party hacks have betrayed the public trust, and the very essence of REPRESENTATIVE democracy.

    The issue here is a simple question: "Who do these guys really REPRESENT?"
