Uh, huh....sure. And in my case they would be....Eleanor Holmes Norton and Whatshisorhername? You're kidding, right? You mean the ones without a VOTE!!??
It's hard to be a citizen when your views don't even have a chance of being represented in our nation's government (ha...can we even say that any more without making "quote" marks in the air?).
I am, of course, a resident of the District of Columbia, favorite meddling place of conservative voting congresspersons from Virginia (especially) who think they know what's best for us (more guns), never mind what we want or need (no guns, thanks).
Well, if anybody's listening, here's what I want and think.
*I want my elected peeps to vote NO on the blank check to Wall Street.
*I want them to vote YES to impeaching Bush and Cheney, who are running the country now as if we were all back in the days of King George.
*I want them to make the Republicans get back into convention (without all the ugly cops) and give us candidates other than a doddering old foof (and don't give me that war hero crap...he's been doing his best to screw veterans for some time now...like ever since he got back from Viet Nam and a whole bunch more didn't...but sssshhhh...we can't talk about THAT!!) and a hockey mom who can see Russia from her back yard. (Doubt that....she doesn't live on an island, I don't think--the one from which you actually can see Russia.)
*I want ALL BALLOTS for this election to be paper and hand-marked with ink, and
*Related to that, I want the November elections to be overseen by an international group, like the United Nations.
*I want NO ELECTION RETURNS ANNOUNCED ON TV or RADIO until they have had time to count all the ballots and certify the results in the far western states (including Alaska, if they haven't seceded yet, and Hawaii, home of the strange foreigners called...guess what? Americans).
*Lastly, I want NO nostalgic programs devoted to the patron saint of the neocons, Ronald Reagan, aired while they are counting the ballots, and NO GASBAGS ANALYZING EXIT POLLS OR THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR OWN ENTRAILS. Programming suggestions: what we used to get when TV first was aired publicly: test patterns, local weather, and great old British movies.
