  •  2012 a life or death decision... (4+ / 0-)

    As much as I disagree with the President, the Blue Dog caucus, the "centrists" and the "incrementalist pragmatists, in the Democratic Party, when I see something like this, I am reminded that this is an existential moment in America. If the Republican Party gains the White House and the Congress, people in America are going to die of poverty and neglect at a much greater rate. If the Republicans gain political control America will be a lesser country and its people will be less educated, less free and less economically secure. If Republicans win, the majority of Americans lose, and it is ultimately just that simple.

      If the repubs were to gain control of the presidency along with congress and have unfettered ability to pass laws and make policy...we'll have riots in the street and mass rebellion......this in addition to the great pockets of poverty and lack of education opportunities and all else you've mentioned here.

      This is a very troubling time indeed.
