    Here is an e-mail that I have written today to the two senators from Texas and my representative in the House.

    Senator/Congressma - you and all of your colleagues in the US Congress should be embarressed and ashamed at the fiasco that has been the debt ceiling debate. Both sides of the aisle have missed a perfect opportunity to address in a very significant manner the budget and finacial crisis that our country suffers.

    Why?

    Because of the rancour and shrill nature of politics that is Washington today.

    Because our representatives fail to rise above this and fail to do their jobs in looking out what is best for the country.

    Because both sides of the aisle refuse to learn and implement the art of compromise.

    And as a result you, sir/madam, and all of your collegaues have allowed a fringe element of the Republican party (a/k/a the Tea Party) to control the debate.

    America is best governed from 'the middle' not from fringe elements.

    As a result of this failure by you and all of your colleage, the American people have to suffer a "dog's breakfast" of a bill that does not solve the problem at all. You, sir/madam, and all of your colleagues from both sides of the aisle bear responsibility for this.

    This is one Republican who has had it with the dysfunctional representation that exists in the US Congress.

    In the next election when you come up for re-election should you choose to run (and I truly hope that you do not as you you do not deserve to be in the Senate/House), I will be voting in the primary for the best candidate who runs against you. Should you win the primary, I will be voting for the Democrat.

    This will be the case for all of my votes for Senate and House of Represenatives.

    I have come to the conclusion that the only solution is a wholesale house cleaning of the US Congress - both sides of the aisle.

    What comes next might not be better but I will take my chances because it cannot be any worse.

    I fully realize that this does not may not make a bit of difference to you as what is clear is all that matters in the US Congress is partisan politics.

      Piers, While the general consensus is to blame our elected Washington representatives, I believe Wall Street and general reporting in the media is masking the real problem. That is: Wall Street The economy is moving along quite nicely, so Wall street blames Washington for the exisitng problems. Clearly the smart money and the market had already factored this into the value of securities. So, I believe Wall Street is purposely causing fear, uncertainty and doubt to drive prices down and scrare the average investor out of the market. Why, so the smart money can get in at low values or the smart money has shorted the market. So, what can the average inverstor do. Nothing!!! Do Not Sell. American companies are a great long term values. Take a lesson from Warren Buffet. Buy quality companies and hold on for your long-term goals. Do not allow the "Wall Street Fear Pudits' drive you out of a great investment. If the average investor does not sell, the smart money can not get your stock on the cheap. The shorts will have to come in to cover their positions and drive the stock prices back up to their real market value. AMERICAN, Hang in the game and do not sell.
