  •  Again: you don't vote for someone to represent you (0+ / 0-)

    You vote for the leader that you'd prefer to lobby.

    In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!
