A third party might be a solution, but it is not going to solve anything at this time, as it is just a bandaide. After taking a bit of time to think
on this, the solution, and it is going to be one that will end up having to hurt in the long run, is to vote out all incumbents across the board. You
see, by constanently voting a person back into office, it sends several messages, one being that the person with the most money can win all of the
time, and a person can get comfortable in the seat he or she occupies. They tend to forget the one thing that got them there in the first place, that
is that the elected official is there at the will of the people, not off of special interest. By voting out incumbents on a regular basis sends a far
greater message, and that is don't get too used to being there, cause in the next election you will not be considered. Now does it mean we just
abandon them to the wind, no, but if they do a good job, move them up the political ladder or send them on their way if they did not go a good job.
Most politicians, from what I have heard, once they get into office, a majority of their time is spent on getting relected, rather than doing a good
job for which they were hired to do. Ask yourself this, if you were a manager of a store or a company and you had an employee like any number of the
politicians, would you keep that person around or fire them?
More people need to think in terms like that, and see how quickly the government changes for the better.
