If politicians are the problem, then perhaps "we the people" should be more selective about whom we elect into office ("Sequestration isn't the problem -- politicians are," Web, Saturday). We should vote for people who have a clear understanding of what our problems are and who have effective, "real-diamond" solutions -- not cubic-zirconia ones that sparkle and glitter enough to attract support but are worthless, ineffective and costly.
We need legislators who have the interest of all in mind and are not "captives of special interests." They should challenge us to be the best we can be and be willing to make the sacrifices necessary to keep this country truly the "land of the free and the home of the brave."
