Mail: Exercise your voting powerTell North Platte what you think

Itís about to happen again. Nationwide, Congress has only a 10% approval rating, yet we are about to re-elect 90% of the incumbents.

How can this be? The only explanation: 90% of us approve of our own representative but want everyone else to elect someone different.

If this continues there will never be meaningful change in Washington. Things will always be the same right up until our country collapses under the weight of debt and corruption.

Fellow Americans, we must do something different now. You can only vote for/against, and possibly replace, one of the 435 members of the House.

Is your representative really worthy of being sent back to Washington? If he/she has been there for 8 or more years itís very likely he/she is part of the problem. If one of your choices in November is an 8+ year incumbent, seriously consider voting for the challenger.

But you say, ďThe other candidate is a member of the other party and heís pro this or that.Ē

A freshman representative of either party will do less harm than an entrenched incumbent. In two years it will be easier to elect someone different, and, the country gets a new Congress now.
