    Reject candidates who market and insist on candidates who actually talk at length with people about issues and about what the people think -- in detail, not in sound bites or polling question chunks.

    If you can't call their staff as an ordinary citizen and have a detailed and substantive conversation about policy and unrelated to constituent services, don't support them.  They are part of the problem.

    When we start fixing the way polticians communicate with the people, we'll start fixing the politicians.

    No more statements like "the only important voices here are those of  the Senators".
