    Like many others, I made it to the Caucus meetings. I’ve never been so angry over the way things are going in Washington. I just wanted to make sure I got my two cents worth in at some level.

    When it was time to vote for 2 delegates to the state convention I lost my enthusiasm. The nominee’s got up and stated how they felt about things, in particular how they felt about Senator Bennett. One of them said that they would vote for Mr. Bennett regardless of who might run against him. Even though he admitted not knowing who all the candidates were. The other said that he was 98% sure he would vote for Mr. Bennett because he was so powerful.

    I think our country is in a lot of trouble because people either DON’T vote, or vote for a candidate because he’s the incumbent and they are so afraid that their state would lose power if they lost the incumbent. The trouble is that all the states think that their incumbents should be sent back to Washington and so nothing changes!

    Term limits would fix much of the problem, but we will never see them vote for that. So we keep sending career politicians back to “Sin City” and think that by magic it will all change for the better.

    I’m not against Mr. Bennett in general, even though I haven’t always agreed with his stand on things. What I’m against and what depresses me is that we would vote for someone…anyone, without even knowing the other candidates. I guess the old adage is true that voters in a democracy will usually get what they deserve.
