There is an answer. The answer is to elect those with high moral standards, those who can't be bought, those who have to work for a living and have to balance a budget every month in order to put food on the table and keep children in school and put them through college. Get those who complain the loudest to work for an election, knock on doors, after getting the voting records of incumbents, let the people know what their elected officials have been doing, ask them to make up their "own" mind by not letting the media make it up for them, offer to take shut-ins to the poll sites. Anything else. This is called by some as reach one, teach one, but teach them their decisions are the most important. Let them make the decision after finding out the facts. Our elected officials are just that! "Elected." One vote can make a difference.
