Here is the link to an article in the Christian Science Monitor which talks about how polarized the Congress is becoming. If the author is correct then I don’t think that expats can really expect much relief from Washington’s war against them. This is an example of why the argument that we have no representation is a valid one. Where will there be any voices that will listen to reason? Our only representation is through the legislative assemblies of the countries in which we reside and the fact that the governments of other countries are willing to stand up for people that the U.S. believes belong exculsively to them is what makes them even more angry.
