Incumbents rule

Incumbents rule - The Boston Globe

Only 14 of the Senate's 40 seats, and only 58 of the 160 seats in the House, are being contested this year, raising the question of where democracy has gone.

If you think of it, to 'elect' means to choose. If there's no choice, how can there be an election? And if there's no true election, where's the democracy?

The fact is that Massachusetts has a disgraceful record of non-competitiveness in its legislative races, ranking worst, or next worst, of all the states over the last two decades.
