why people like us register and vote

The US House Committee on Science, Space and Technology reminds me of a church Buildings and Grounds Committee who believe their main job is keeping people out of the buildings and off the grounds.

These guys — not everybody in Congress but the presence in Congress of people like these guys — are a very good reason to register and vote this year so we can get on with what functioning congresses have always referred to as, "the people's business." 

Today is National Voter Registration Day. We're not voting for a president, but there's a lot to gain and a lot to lose in this year's midterm elections. It would suck if people like these remained in positions of responsibility simply because people like us didn't register and vote.

You can probably register online: Rock the Vote | League of Women Voters
