32. Maybe some of them are tired of voting for crazies

Insanity is what? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same result, but that result will never occur?
these evangelicals get preached day in and day out that the Dems will turn their kids into Satan worshipping, Glee-watching namby-panpies, or multi-abortion having harpies, if they don't vote Rethugican every time.

Instead, what happens? The poor get hella poor and abortion is still on the books, the Tea Party is a racist joke that can't make a budget that reduces the deficit, Bush failed terribly, and the moderate Christians are annoyed by the fundamentalists running for office. Everything they thought to gain has got them nowhere by voting Republicans.

Maybe some of them have had enough of the birth-control wars, hate-the-gays wars, and women-are-not-equal wars. Maybe some of them just wanna vote for someone with a damn plan for once (Obama, Paul, and the 3rd party folks all have some kinda plan) or at least a track record that isn't horribly hypocritical (Obama).

It's still the economy that matters, I reckon.
