61. It is very frustrating to listen to someone who will vote against their own best interest..
. time and time again the Republicans vote against their own (and the country's) best interest.. when it is obvious that many of them, like millions of Americans, are one paycheck away from foreclosure.

Yet the Repubs and Teabaggers are so marinated in religious dogma and corporate propaganda.. they are oblivious to reality.

But I think a lot of folks are waking up and realizing that the Banksters are using the Right vs Left paradigm as a diversion to cover their tracks.

I think the real issue for America is not so much right vs left (although the site of Palin and Glenn Beck makes my stomach churn) the real issue MSM doesn't want you to see is Up vs Down. The fed vs America.. Wall Street against the workers... Goldman Sacs vs Main street.

I think that's the issue.. imho.
