And how did this all happen? Was it the plan? No. It is the apathetic USAn voter who refuses to vote and "justifies" not voting because the system is rigged, they'll do what they want anyway, there's no real choice among the candidates, politicians are all crooks and I'll have nothing to do with them, etc. To overcome the current t-partiers and lobbyists, everyone must vote in every election striving for 100% participation records over a lifetime of going to the polls. It's all our fault. We allow the Koch-funded propaganda to emasculate us and keep us on the couch in front of the Mainstream Misinformation Machine instead of getting out, knocking on doors, pushing the neighbors and relatives and friends and coworkers to get to the polls and vote. It seems that most of us know well that oil industry people lie, yet we "admire" their houses, their cars, their Citations, their food and drink. Against logic and experience, we expect some hero to come along and save us. Whatever you do, do NOT not vote. Doing so creates a vacuum easily filled with t-party fanatics.
