    Well, it has really gotten out of hand and the folks we have now will make it worse. It is no longer a matter of differences of opinion but, the fact that our govenment is wrecking this country financially and growing the entitlement mentality, the future doesn't look very pretty.

    We can only vote for the candidates that run in our districts. For the rest, you have to convince their constituents of the need for a change.

    We have to put up with the current make up of Congress for the next two years. The constitution calls for an election every two years for a congressman and every six years for a senator.

    Conceivably in a parliamentary system, you can push out a government in the moment of passing an unpopular measure. In practice it makes for incredibly tight partisan adherence and ordinary citizen input is much harder. A resident of Canada remarked to me once that their system is an essentially an elected dictatorship.
