    •  Small wonder! (11+ / 0-)

      THANX to ALEC and other such nefarious neo-fascist entities, Our Country, state by state, is being BOUGHT OVER by them in a methodical,
      insidious manner!
      They are formulating and forwarding to their captive states, a wide swath of dangerous and oppressive state laws for their groveling lickspittle hirelings
      to enact.
      Thanks to just ALEC , 826 bills were inroduced in the states in 2009,
      and 115 were enacted into law.

      •  I cannot argue with you - is it not time (5+ / 0-)

        for the pendulum to start swinging the other way?

          I am no Pollyanna, I have no crystall ball and I don't speculate.
          I fear the 2 billion dollars of lying propaganda to be spent on defeating
          Our President Obama.
          I fear the abject, intense racial hatred many bear for Our President Obama.
          I Fear the successful voter suppression of many thousands of
          Our American Citizens.
          I also fear a repeat similiar to the presidential election of 2000, when an obsolete "Electoral College" process (which favours reactionaries)
          and a group of partisan so-called "Justices" gave the election
          to the vile war criminal GW Bush, even though Gore won the direct vote!
          All of the above make for very dire circumstances a few months from now.
                                      The proof will be in the pudding...

        •  Folks, we have to grab that pendulum and shove (5+ / 0-)

          it with all we got in the correct direction.

          It isn't going to shift towards our way without a major movement, and we have to marshall the issues which help coalesce a majority groundswell, and a momentum that's impossible to deny.  Women's rights seems it should be a relatively easy 51% of all voters (all female ones), plus the fair number of men who support these rights, maybe another 25-30% of voters at worst, but at best may be more.  We should have 80% of voters except we have fundamentalists & pro-Lifers twisting the minds of around 30% to 40%.  Moving the pendulum means we need to do some deprogramming.  If we can deprogram 5%, election results would shift enough to move the pendulum.  If we can deprogram 10% we get enough momentum to retake the nation.  But we'll need another 10% at that point to rebuild all the infrustructure damaged over the last 3 decades.

          When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
