1. Ditto
Everyday I wake up & wonder what unbelievable shit will they get away with or try today & will anyone call them out on it? It's draining, isn't it?

2. I had Republican Fatigue before 2000.
Mine goes all the way back to the days of Saint Ronnie.

7. Yes, 1980 was the year for me, too
because that's when Saint Ronnie handed the party over to the religious hysterics for rhetoric (and the rich for real control).

Funny, Nixon didn't turn me off to the pubbies, although I was very glad when he was gone.

It took Reagan and his pandering to the absolute worst people that the intolerant fundie churches have produced to do that.

I don't think we're alone. I think the 70% of Americans who don't go to evangelical, dead letter literalist, fundy churches are sick to death of these people and their antics, no matter how much they want their taxes cut.

4. I've been fatigued of Republicans since about 1968.
But it's certainly gotten even worse since 2000.

I'm fatigued of the Republican tilting media as well.

6. Fatigue or apathy or both?
Yeah, I'm on the same page, but at the same time, I have this creeping feeling of apathy as well towards Democracy and the Democrats in congress.

It just seems to me, that just when they appear to be getting a spine, they roll over.

This is why the progressive movement it so important.

10. Neozombies will tire before I do!
I'll just keep hacking away. Keep lining them up and I'll keep knocking them down. Just like a video game like "Resident Evil" or "Hunter the Reckoning". There is too much at stake to become fatigued. Become fatigued and you become one of them.

12. Do you think
those who voted Republican are also feeling the fatigue? I do. They voted for the Republicans and, guess what? No improvements. Nothing. The economy is mired. Jobs pay less. Healthcare is eroding: we're paying more for less. The fundies are sucking all of the air out of the room with their relentless assaults on the foundations of our government. Our state legislators are bogged down in petty battles while educational systems languish. More children are suffering from povery and neglect. Our environment is becoming more dangerous and less productive. And America's reputation internationally is that of a bully and a buffoon.
There's enough fatigue for everyone.

13. But where is the outrage?
We're all tired of the lies, self/corporate interest, the unnecessary dying, rape of the environment, and on and on and on. What is it going to take to bring outrage? To bring truth? To get people to ACT? Are we boomers to comfy in our SUVs to spark real protest?
