    of a quote from V for Vendetta that's always stuck with me:

    "People shouldn't be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people."

    At least most Democrats understand that we are many and they are few.

    Republicans seem to have forgotten this fact entirely.

      ...of their own electorate. You have to give the Right that. They really try to enact the crazy shit that they run on. Our pols run on good ideas and then lose interest once they've harvested our votes.

        definitely noticed that pattern. Ours is the party of good ideas and empty, hollow promises.

        There are times when I wonder if it'll all come down to a good old fashioned peasant revolt. The kind with torches and pitchforks, and us swarming on Washington and banging down the gates.

        I think our whole society is a pressure cooker that can only take so much.
