The GOP goes MIA

I remember six years ago when the tea party stormed the town hall meetings to berate the Democratic incumbents. Many of those incumbents were defeated, but at least they showed up and took their beating.

Now we have Republican incumbents who won’t even show up. Their opponent is not the tea party, but they are very angry about the goings-on in Washington and would like to speak to their representatives about it. I oppose the two-party system and support neither major party, but in this case, the Democrats have shown more mettle.
