Seth Moulton is the U.S. Representative, for the Sixth Congressional District in the state of Massachusetts, who has held the seat since 2015 and is up for re-election in the 2018 midterms. Before being elected to the House, Moulton received a BS in Physics from Harvard University, as well as Masters degrees in business and public policy. Before receiving his masters, however, Moulton served four tours of duty in Iraq. At age 39, this makes him the youngest member of the House of Representatives, which currently averages 58.

It doesn't take long to know what Moulton stands for

In the past year, Moulton has made several appearances on television programs such as MSNBC’s "Morning Joe", NBC’s "Late Night with Seth Meyers", and most recently, HBO’s "Real Time with Bill Mahr" to make his stances, experiences, and platforms known. He has taken these opportunities to discuss everything from his time as a member of the Marine Corps in Iraq to the current political climate.

While many Democrats in the House, Senate and Electorate have always been quick to criticize or call out Republicans in one way or another, especially during the Trump Administration, Moulton is singing a different tune that, while aimed at his own party, can serve as words of caution for any party.

Simply calling out the opposing party, rightly or not, and claiming the moral/intellectual high ground is not enough. As Moulton said on Morning Joe a few months ago, "I think we have to take a hard look at ourselves in the mirror. Let's show a vision for our own future. Let's talk about what Democrats can do for the country."

Moulton's message is unique across the political spectrum

Democrats who listen to Moulton's words would prevent them from meeting a similar fate to that of Republicans under the Trump Administration.

While Congressional Republicans spent eight years criticizing the actions of Democrats, especially the President, under the Obama Administration, it appears that criticism was all they have had to offer. They have proven to have difficulty not only taking legislative action, even with the control over all three branches of government but even voicing what their plans or ideas for the country are.

Where most Democrats have been seen criticizing the words and actions of President Donald Trump, and Republicans are stuck between criticizing the President and defending him, Moulton's message serves as a sober reminder for what makes America's government and democracy work best, which is that everyone who participates has to show up with a plan, and not just an opinion.
