    when good people do nothing.  Don't let these goat-fucking fascists or their pets dictate your level of involvement in your government.

      ...the majority. They win because Democrats won't stop them.

      Why should I waste my time voting people into office who don't work in my best interest?

        Nobody's saying you should vote for anyone who doesn't protect your rights.  I'm saying don't let Republicans or their pets drive you out of the process, or even out of parts of the process.  It's your government and country, and those bastards are squatting in it.  

        Try to hold in your mind how much has been sacrificed over centuries for what each of us has; and all the hundreds of generations of slaves and serfs who could never have imagined the power you wield.  You should laugh at Republicans who think you'd be driven out of your stake in the course of the nation by these antics.

        The vermin in the other party think we're so pusillanimous and effete we'd get discouraged and abandon a struggle that began in ancient Athens just because our party is still weak after only 7 months in power.  Very few if any Democrats support the actions of the collaborators, and it's our party--leaders can be ignored and replaced if they fail.  All they've done is delay the agenda, and every obstacle put in our way only makes us stronger by informing us of how to proceed.

        Remember:  Not a single presidential candidate supported the spy bill.  They get it.
