    While I hope that people realize the R's haven't done shit and throw out all they possibly can in 2012, I think this voter education thing is going to take years upon years.  The Rightwing has had 40 years to build their propaganda infrastructure and the not-Rightwing has no such media advantage currently.

      but I think the education is already happening. Polls consistently show that younger people have far more liberal views than the elderly and that they are largely more tolerant of the differences between people.

      I have a lot of hope for the voting power of the newer generations. We may not have the television/newspaper media in our pocket, but that isn't really where young people go to figure out who they are these days.

      And I think the younger generation is growing up to be more worldly. Thanks to the Internet, they interact with people all over the world and have more exposure to other cultures than their grandparents appear to have had.
