Don't give up the fight, I am not, I write many different representatives quite regularly, it does better than nothing. I am also a NRA Life member as well as the Second Amendment Foundation, as well as a member of Gun Owners of America.
What I would like to see is the elimination of both parties, and a person only voted into office by their merit record or ethics. The Two party system only works to create divisions so something can be argued over.
I have been into areas where just about ever individual voted straight democrat, just because John Kennedy gave them something. The candidates could be the worst , but it made no difference. they voted straight democrat, without even knowing about any issues. Kinda like most of today's voters.
