Maybe 'We the People' Need to Holler Louder

In a stirring op-ed in the April 11, 2005 issue of Insight magazine, Herman Cain focuses on the fiscal mess that Congress has dug for the country. Things like the "stiffling effects of the 9-million word tax code," the "impending insolvency of the Social Security system," and the "ever-growing budget deficit." Cain, however, has some advice which the American people need to send to Congress: "We must holler until they start to follow. Instead of reading poll numbers, Congress must start reading thousands of e-mail messages from angry voters in their districts and states. Instead of listening to their political advisers, Congress must start listening to thousands of phone calls from people who are fed up with the income tax code, the dysfunctional Social Security structure, and runaway deficit spending. Instead of focusing on partisan politics and the next election, we must force Congress to focus on not leaving this mess for the next generation." Some outstanding advice in our opinion. And while you're at it, don't leave out Arlington's members of the Virginia General Assembly or Arlington's gang at the Courthouse.
