The reason for our political stagnation is that elected officials have only one goal, and it has nothing to do with sound public policy.
Their singular goal is to remain in office by using the force and power of their party affiliation.
The reason for this vicious cycle is the voters, you and me. We allow ourselves to be manipulated by the very politicians who cause our heartburn.
We should vote them out of office and replace them with independent thinkers.
