I read the other day that the Republican Party is embarking on a nationwide drive, an initiative, to beef up their ranks. With only 20+ % of the voters acknowledging that they are Republicans', they have a big job ahead of them. But after reading their game plan for this drive, I don't see how they can improve their position.

The initiative, called the National Council for a New America, will send party leaders across the country for a series of town halls on health care, the economy, energy and national security.

Members of the council include Arizona Sen. John McCain, the former Republican presidential candidate; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush; former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour

Look at the names of those leaders above. Do you really believe that consensus of any kind could be reached by that ego driven group? Do you believe that any one of those men would actually listen to a concerned voter? They only listen to themselves.

What these yahoo's don't realize is the fact that the majority of Americans hold lawmakers of both parties in contempt. That's the problem. Congressman, Senator…don't worry about the President's popularity numbers; look at your own and find out why no one trusts you. And you find out by asking the people who are not clamoring for your attention. Pay no attention to the 'shouters' and seek out the quiet people…the thinkers.
