How are you doing today, Anthony?  

I hope the Editorial Board appreciates my missives, the stonewalling of the other candidates notwithstanding.

I think I am managing to dig through the important stuff about why Congress has stopped functioning for the American people.

Consider as today's important stuff  My American Lawmaker's Creed, and the discussion there about lawmakers being frequently confronted with a matter in which the people have general interests on opposite sides at the same time, and in which a very small group of persons have a special, one sided interest. 

As I articulate in The GM faulty ignition recall entry, in these situations, my American lawmaker's creed principle is that lawmakers should make their decisions virtually exclusively on the basis of balancing the two generalized societal interests that are on the opposite side, and should disregard the special, one sided interest of the small group.

That entry concludes: "There are hundreds of potent one sided, special interests, which are hard at work in Washington, and their fundraising, campaign contributions and other activities are significant contributing factors to the defects in governance that my Congressional campaign is about."

It it a little tiresome putting all this stuff together in the other candidates' vacuum, so I will leave it at the above for today.  (It is probably not easy for you to keep yourself from being sucked into that vacuum.)

Have a great weekend, Anthony.  I'll probably write more over the weekend.
