WANTED: Discussion on Issues

We are less than twenty-five day away from the midterm elections, and I have yet to hear widespread debate on issues. I am talking about issues like the economy, energy, taxes, immigration, military spending, marriage, or any other of the hundred-and-one issues that affect everyday Americans.

Perhaps government corruption is an important issue, but not the way it’s currently being handled. Politics today more closely resembles a boxing match than a discussion forum. Yes, there are some Congressmen who have done bad things, and they should be kicked out. Congressmen such as Mark Foley should be expelled from Congress, and, if there is a need, an investigation should be conducted. However, the attempts by the Democrats to pull every Republican into the scandal represents one of two things: either desperation or stupidity, maybe both.
