31. The people DID vote, in 2008. Did you forget that we worked hard and WON? There was a mandate

from the people, the compromise in that mandate, was a PO. That was OUR compromise. We didn't even get the compromise.

We voted to bring Wall St and War Criminals to justice, by a wide margin.

Those we elected had different ideas which they didn't tell us during the campaign.

In 2010, the people aqain voted. Our elected officials, rather than get the message the voters sent them, decided to BLAME THE VOTERS.

Biggest turnout in 2008, in a very long time. So what are you talking about when you say 'like, vote or something'? Were you around when we voted, or something??

What should people do when voting doesn't work for them?

Do it again, holding their noses, and again, holding them tighter?

How about you BLAME THOSE WHO DIDN'T keep their campaign promises for a change?

Your comment is exactly why Dems are losing. People vote, they spend time, energy, money many didn't have to spare, then when they succeed, those they elected tell them to 'get lost'.

So the voters listened, they did as they were told. And you are blaming the voters? Well, apparently that strategy isn't working, because once again, the voters 'got lost'.

But they DID vote for Ballot Issues. The voters believe they are not represented. You can ignore that, AGAIN, if you wish, and go on ignoring the real reasons for the lack of enthusiasm for DC, while voters focus on local elections, but if that is your choice, do you expect a different result? Blaming the voters hasn't worked, has it, maybe our elected officials should start listening to the instead.

What a novel idea, 'listen to the voters'!
