I don't know about you but I am a conservative. I believe in small government, less government intrusion into my life, and lower taxes. I think that congress has lost their way and forgotten who they work for. I will not vote for people who marginally represent my views so I guess that I am through with the Republican Party. I'm retired military and I resent that congress has voted to take part of my retirement pay to pay for their redistribution of wealth and did not do the same to other federal employees. But I will not go silently into the night, I will voice my concerns and issues - and loudly. I am about to become an activist! How do you feel about the "fat cats" we call our congressmen and senators?
