I listen to many sources before forming an opinion

Alan Buchko of Lake Station did not understand my letter. I never said "The Daily Show" is where I got my facts. I said "The Daily Show" had more facts in its short half hour than the entire FOX "news network" in 24. It's a sad state of affairs that this is true.

The real joke is that he probably voted for the people who wrecked this country and the ones who are currently holding things up.

I get my facts from many sources before I make my opinions. I have never voted the party line. I vote for people, based on what they have said. Some Republicans even.

As to affordable health care, since I have none, bring it on.

One thing I do believe in is smaller government. To this end I think we should fire half the House and Senate. We should also cut all pension and health benefits to them.

Furthermore, we should get rid of both parties. Their endless fighting is what's keeping this country from being what it once was — the greatest nation on this planet.
