Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The Gallop poll in the Wonkblog link is garbage.

    According to Gallop, 10% of Americans have a great deal of confidence in Congress.

    That cannot be true. If you add up everyone who works for Booz Allen or TBTF banks and relatives of Congress you can’t come up with anything like 10% of the population.

    How many of the people who voted… “properly” as above, would hold lesser opinions of others if they don’t vote Depublicrat?

    If you vote Democrat or Republican you are to blame.

    I’m totally on Taleb’s nut here. Public service should be like jury duty. A random person for a random amount of time.
