We are speaking loudly and clearly. We are making our desires known. We are requesting that we be heard. We are calling and writing and protesting. Yet, is anyone listening? Is anyone hearing us? And, more importantly, does anyone care? It would seem that our elected officials have their own set agenda and don't give a damn about their constituents. That level of arrogance speaks volumes to me and says that the best way to handle that is to ensure that they are voted out as soon as that opportunity arrives.
