  •  The reason why 1/2 the country votes GOP (9+ / 0-)

    Is because of the very mass media propaganda that's going to give you a heart attack.

    I really can't stand to listen or watch 1 minute of any of it anymore.

      And I too have my times when I just check out of it all, including this site. But I always come back, because, well, because I care. A lot. And I keep trying to find ways to add in and make it better. I keep trying to have the discussion, and so do you, or you wouldn't be here commenting on this diary, or on this site at all.

      We are not the most put upon people on earth, or in history, we just get to hear about it more, and faster, than any time before us. Which I know leaves us with our faces pressed up against the window of day to day events, in a way no one in history has had the progress/pain of doing so.

      Like all progress, it's a mixed bag.

    •  I think the reason is (0+ / 0-)

      because only half of people vote in the first place. People who don't vote look more like Dems demographically.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
