    If not, maybe their bonkers behavior might be somehow influenced by the ways they come to know about Republicans.

    1/3 billion people drawn from every ethnicity and philosophy of humanity;  5 dominant information content sources.

    If such people are the core problem why is anyone screwing around here?

      I'm here because I wish to be informed. By that I mean that I don't just get news from one source. I trawl CNN and BBC web for news. I watch Maddow religiously, and watch faux for an hour (after an hour I usually start shouting at the tv lol ). I do this because only when you know more than one side of an issue do you begin to understand it. And the Kos dairies and comments do a fantastic job of letting me see how current news is affecting real people.

      I'm also here because this is a place not just for like minded individuals, but a place for people who want change. And they want to change for the betterment of not just themselves but for the many. An ideal many Americans have forgotten in the age of mass consumerism we are caught up in. I think a sea change is required to right the many wrongs, and that places like this are at least part of what will make that sea change happen.
