    such that, even if they don't vote, it's going to affect those who do. There's a sea change in national dialog going on now.

    •  However, Americans Elect is gaining ground (0+ / 0-)

      I have done a lot of research on that group. If not ALEC/Koch funded, then my sniffer is no good. This "third option" for 2012 is very youth oriented. The research I did before they stopped showing where their funding was coming from was all right wing and I think I saw the Koch Bros. listed in connection with the guy's father, who was largely funding Americans Elect back when I could still watch what they were up to. I do not take this group lightly.

      That combined with the states President Obama won that Bush won in 2004 has me extremely worried (the parens is the electoral nos.) - enough to push Romney into winning: Florida (27), Ohio (20), Indiana (11), Virginia (13), North Carolina (15), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5), Nevada (5) and Iowa (7) - the electoral nos. in 2008 were 365/173.

      I'm quite concerned, not just on a federal level, but with regard to local/state judges, politicians and measures, as well.

      the cabal is so critically important.  These are today's issues and can't be put off until more are ready to become involved.
