545 vs. 300,000,000 People -- MUST READ

Recently retired journalist Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel has been making the rounds in email lately (you can read that version here and another version here) and for good reason – it makes total and complete sense.  

Money Quote (though honestly I could quote the entire thing) –
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
 […]
Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone have the power. They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses - provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.
Read it and think about it.
