No matter what you think of them, the Big Oil and Big Corporation funded Tea Party has managed to make the Republican Party take a sharp turn to the right. But that's not the half of it.
This sham movement of nearly all white reactionaries has also managed to swerve the Democratic Party to the right and leave it in the mucky putrid swamp of the middle where they will be easily gunned down. As Sarah says, "Reload." That they will.
Will the Democrats ever learn? No. The right scares Big D politicians to death. It's a combination of absurd conventional wisdom that America has been, is still and forever will be a Christian nation along with the possibility of losing political funding should they turn their backs on Big Business.

Obviously, please, put this all in perspective and get out and vote.
But don't fail to also keep speaking truth to authority. Tell those you are voting for what you are voting for, and don't stop there.
We need to take actions against the Corporatocracy that has us in this pickle. Punish, punish, punish in the market place. Money is power. You may not have much money, but you've got some and how you spend it is a vote every day.
Here's your daily choice:
Keep spending your money at the businesses owned by Big Corporations,
