  •  This is all shocking beyond belief... (8+ / 0-)

    I never thought that MI would become a red state, infiltrated by tea party kooks who have the power to destroy democracy from within--but it seems that it has.

    A state that's so divided and contorted that it votes for Democratic Senators and a Democratic POTUS, yet has a two-faced, lying, conservative-in-moderate's-clothing GOPer Gov. and a tea party loon legislature...?  

    The consequences of sitting out non presidential election years--for whatever reasons--become more apparent with each passing day--and they are whoppers.

    •  I really hope. (5+ / 0-)

      I made phone calls before the 2010 election. I had people tell me, "I'm going to sit this one out. I was pretty enthusiastic about Barack Obama in 2008, but I don't think he's done the greatest job." And I wanted to cuss the person out. I wanted to get all sarcastic: "Yeah! Just stay home in 2010! That'll show 'em, all right! Boy, your 'despair' is so hip! I am in awe." I said none of these things, of course. All I can do I hope and pray this thinking goes by the wayside in many more voters.
