80. We're getting killed, deal with it.

Denying the situation we're in is not going to change it.
We are losing this election as it stands right now. Crazy? Of course.
But an aging actor who played a President in the role of his lifetime was elected twice in this country.

Whatever the reason: racism, ignorance, image over substance, etc. - here we are. In a country just barely recovering from the reckless and treasonous actions of the right wing, the electorate is about to choose a ultra-rich white guy with a faux-intellectual reactionary running mate, both beholden to the lunatic fringe, over the effectively hobbled sitting President - the land of the 'fraid and the home of the (brain) freeze. Make no mistake - we'll be f&^%ed for the rest of many of our lives.

Maybe it's time to realize - it's not a great country, it's a stupid one and it's controlled by idiots. Whatever, but wake up - we are losing.
