Idaho state Rep. Shirley Ringo was provided the opportunity to second-guess and to find fault with current U.S. Congressman Raul Labrador, but she did not provide any specifics about what she would do on her own. Surely, she knows that she was 1/70 of the Idaho House of Representatives, with all the power that entails, and that if she were to assume Labrador’s position in the U.S. House of Representatives she would become 1/435 of that body’s power makers.
Yet, she thinks she can change the minds of at least 218 other representatives in one or two terms. Voters beware.
The citizens in each district are the real solution to the difficulties in the U.S. Congress. The citizens should express themselves as the Founding Fathers had in mind and should end the centralized government mindset that has paralyzed and weakened our republic. Self-serving politician types will only continue to undermine our nation.
