We have all heard people say our federal government is broken.
What has not been said loud enough is what you and I, as concerned voting Americans, can do about it.
For starters, we need to vote every congressional incumbent, both Democrat and Republican, out of office, a harsh but necessary step.
Next, those congressional challengers elected must be held to the following standard:
Never miss a local story.
That is a start. If you are part of the silent majority you need to speak up now.
Voting your conscience and common sense in November can send a message to Washington: Fix our broken government or pay the consequences.
