"Where we disagree is where you apparently thinks he should follow his constituency without thinking at all. That's stupid."

'Without thinking at all'? Well, now that's a whole other ball game. Truth be told, you would almost never find an issue that is so black-and-white that every one of his constituents would agree; and then, of course, it's his job to decide which way to go that most would like. What I don't like, and what this guy is saying, is that he would listen to his voters and try to do what most of them want.
The attitude I was expressing throughout this discussion is that I would support this guy over the vast majority out there that couldn't care less what the constituents want. Those ones are voting their own way, period. And too often, which is my real pet peeve with the current crop of politicians, the 'constituents' getting heard and followed are the ones with the big money.
Just so you know, I'm one of those voters who carefully watch the voting records of the incumbents, and by God, if I disagree with the msjority of votes, they aren't getting mine. That's also, by the way, the reason I don't have a party affiliation.
