    We have maybe two senators worth a damn.  If I hear "we didn't have the votes" one more time I'll scream.   In 2010, these jack holes couldn't even do nothing.  You need 60 votes, unless you want to extend tax cuts for the rich amd shorten ui benefits.  More money!  Fear the slightly more awful alternative!  

    Pelosi couldn't see anything illegal about torture and war crimes.  More money!  Fear the slightly more awful alternative!  

    There are only two issues that matter, the rest is bullshit.  

    1) citizens united
    2) the class war (see #1)

    When you get around to using fundraising for things that might make a difference, let me know.  Throwing more money at the same people who blew their chance to prove they deserve to govern is the very definition of insanity.

      this election is pointless?

      do you have a bad view if obama wins a second term?

      •  yes (0+ / 0-)

        Electoral solutions only benefit our corporate overlords.  Obama winning or losing has no effect on me, since he is on the same side in the class war as Romney.  The differences between them are infinitesimal.  

        Se my two issues above. Until those two are addressed, nothing changes.

          What are your plans for activism, holding leaders accountable, and etc?

          Seriously?

          This is a site for electorally improving this country. If you think that's a fool's errand, then what are you still doing here?

          It's a big internet. There's bound to be a better place for someone with your level of pessimism.

            I am here to crash the gates.  Why NOT do something creative, like start a super PAC?  Why fund the dems without any conditions?  Corporations put conditions on their money.  Why don't we?  

            My vision of electorally improving the country may differ from yours, but we ARE on the same side.  I have been working to defeat Michele Bachmann here since 2008.  I also work for Keith Ellison and Jim Graves, and I send money to Alan Grayson.  In the past I sent a boatload of money to Obama.  I gave til it hurt.  

            The presidential race this year doesn't interest me.  Does it need to in order to post here?  

            Your answer will be the most interesting thing you've said in years.
