    to poor voter turn-out, you hire plenty of smart, agenda-free people to talk with the public, really get out there and dig for info, and when they report back to you that the public didn't bother showing up at the polls because you aren't liberal enough for their tastes, you listen, learn, and vow to do better next time.  

    Neither you nor I honestly believe any democratic administration, or congresscritter, has been stupid enough to neglect such a fundamentally obvious course of action.  We might question their ethics and loyalties, but I doubt anyone here has ever questioned the average dem politico IQ.      

    The shockingly deplorable and increasingly likely explanation is that special interests (we all know who they are by now) have been systematically culling and bankrolling morally malleable candidates to run for office in a grand, inverted totalitarianistic scheme.  

    Inverted totalitarianism aims for the mass of the population to be in a persistent state of political apathy. The only type of political activity expected or desired from the citizenry is voting. Low electoral turnouts are favorably received as an indication that the bulk of the population has given up hope that the government will ever help them.

    We get a democratic travesty complete with ostensibly clueless and disconnected politicians, they get to run the whole damn show while we squander precious time arguing about whether or not Obama has our best interests at heart.  

    What a fucking circus.  Bread and circuses, more like.
