No Labels can play an important role in 2024 even without the risks inherent in running a third party "Unity Ticket"fraught with unintended consequences.
When did the elected representatives of this nation stop being servants and become our overseers? When did the thrust toward consensus building end and continuous confrontation become the obligatory norm in our public life -- dominated by most extreme voices at both ends of the political spectrum?
George Santos sitting in the House of Representatives is a national crisis. Generic “Congress” enjoyed a measly 21% approval rating in January 2023 public opinion polls -- after a 15 ballot whooping of the new Speaker of the House. Who -- in their right mind -- believes the House of Representatives, specifically the GOP House
President Biden's Executive Order (EO) forgiving up to $20,000 of student debt for past borrowers is not a solution to a $1.6 Trillion student debt problem.

The media frequently mentions the "FISA Courts" while reporting on National Security Agency (NSA), FBI and other intelligence activities that may involve US citizens. Below is a brief description of the court's purpose and how it works.
Contrast the national median income for a family of four -- $55,775 -- against the average bureaucrat or congressional or presidential staffer, who earns twice what the average American family does (members of Congress earn 3.2 times their average constituent), and the picture becomes clear.
