      and they are 10 percent, they cannot outspend us.  It is just that we are more complacent on the issue than they are.

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.

        I'm now a two-issue voter. Being in the Indiana Ohio valley, I'm going to do everything I can to make sure McConnell is out in 2014 and Coats is out in 2016.

        Look at the financial numbers.

        90% of us make about 10% of the money, most of which goes to survival.  The 1% takes most of the money, and can use it how ever they want.

        Numbers have limited impact under normal circumstances any more.  That's not what this country was founded for, but it is a reality we have to deal with.

        I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

          Good.  Let the NRA and their ilk spend the big bucks, but if We, the People get good and riled up (as I am now), we inundate their offices - both in DC and locally - with our presence.

          And it must...start...now.

            Maybe I can go to their offices and just sit there and cry...
            It's been a rough decade plus for us and we've spent about all we can.
            All of our representation is republican....
