If people ever make the connection that this is the direct result of the GOP’s manipulation of the base, IE “the light goes on”, we could really see change we can believe in. The problem is that it’s more likely this was the last chance and most people have just decided to give up.
In a way I do not blame them. When your own turn on you, there’s no one but yourself left to believe in. When the history books are written in a couple hundred years (assuming humanity survives to write them) I am convinced that they will have a chapter on the merger between the Dems/GOP starting back in the 80s.
Reagan had plenty in his own party out to get him.
I’m worried that with this level of apathy, Obama’s minions will gin up his base (I’m thinking the Trayvon travesty is just a trial run) and win (thug tactics and voter fraud are their specialty).
I feel we need to keep conservative-leaning pressure up, and gin up the Silent Majority to step up to the plate and save us from certain fiscal, if not historical, collapse.
What we need is for conservatives - of all parties and none at all - to finally start figuring out that while we do have a two-party system, nothing says that it has to be the present two parties.
Once conservatives can start wrapping their heads around that truth, rather than just resigning themselves to the GOP-E candidate who is being scammed into the GOP nomination, we might actually see things happen.
The GOP and Romney destroyed Santorum in an all-out attack. I guess I will vote Constitution Party. What other choice do I have?
