POLITICS: Legislators just toe the party line

I am disgusted with the prejudiced, intolerant, narrow-minded and partisan rhetoric presented by both the Republican and Democratic parties. No member of Congress seems to have an opinion that is his or her own. It is always of the party, by the party and for the party.

I have had enough and will never vote for an incumbent running for re-election. One term is enough. Not worrying about re-election just might permit them to have the guts to do what is best for the country and not the party.
