    whom? Mitt Romney? We are between a rock and hard place. It's terrible and it could get worse.

    •  The system is rigged.... (6+ / 0-)

      The system doesn't work as it exists. The two party, winner take all, privately funded election system will not provide us with any thing better. Don't get me wrong, Democrats are the better option, but how does one get more and better democrats in the system as it exists? How do we hold Democrats accountable when the alternative is unacceptable? Apathy certainly isn't the answer, nor is letting the R's take control out of spite. It is a hell of a lot harder developing a "big tent" democratic party with so many people with so many diverse and conflicting desires than whipping up low info single issue voters in the R party.

      I think largely the above realization and seeing events like what is happening with the DOJ depresses Democrat voter turnout. Democratic voters seem to be genuinely better informed and educated than the base of R party. The sort of behavior seen by the Obama DOJ depresses Democratic voter turnout. I wish Candidate Obama would realize this and change President Obama's policies.
