    •  You are confusing swing voters . . . (0+ / 0-)

      . . . with people who use rational processes.

      It was totally irrational to vote for Nader in 2000.  But some folks did, and now we're all paying for it.

      Did you hear the voters on NPR this morning, explaining their vote philosophies?  "If I like the way things are going, I vote for the incumbent.  I haven't voted for an incumbent in over 20 years."  "I can't really explain it, it's just a feeling I get about the candidates."  Etc.  

      Like it or not, the rest of us are hostage to these people.  Deal with it.

    •  I'll Explain That (0+ / 0-)

      as soon as you explain why you think I and many fine progressives and leftists should be mailed off to be tortured in some despotic third-world hellhole.
