David Green for Congress. Absolutely stunning and historic to have a candidate not pandering to what 1/2 of the voters have been taught to hear (and the slanted conservative questions that result), but telling all the voters what they need to hear. Thank you Mr. Green for offering your education to us. While it probably has been exhausting, tiring, and disappointing to have to muddle through this crooked electoral process, I hope you consider running again, and again, and again.

The Green Candidacy makes it abundantly clear that election primaries should be held in June on a Weekend. General elections should be held in late August over two days on a Weekend. Political ads should be public service announcements and television stations, radio stations and newspapers should not be allowed to charge for airing (printing) them as part of serving the public interest to qualify for an FCC license and tax exempt status. The same number of petition signatures should be required of all candidates regardless of party or non-party affiliation, and a mandatory 6 debates must be held for two hour sessions with audience participation allowed at all six.

Thank you News-Gazette for at least giving us this twisted FOX News version anyway.

Now back to our regularly scheduled party-hack-vague-platitudes where the party bosses' boy can duck and jive his way toward winning as an incumbant without debating his opponent (s), enjoying lobbyist money in exchange for doing the lobbyists' bidding. Let the legislative bribing continue.....
