70. Same here - I'm struggling just to vote and
I won't vote for republican nor democrat. I keep getting calls for cash and help with campaigning like I did with Obama and local dems, they can't seem to understand why I am refusing. 30 years straight dem ticket. But be aware Dem Party leadership couldn't give a rat's ass about you. The 50 states strategy was snuffed out by Rahm Emanuel and we are back to a focus on a few key states and corporate cash. Its so much easier to follow the money than build up a nationwide grass roots base of support that has to answer to millions of citizens. Its almost like Demo leadership held their noses and "allowed" us to work and campaign for them. Once the election was over - they gave us a big fuck you and spread their legs like $5 whores for Fortune 500 republicans.

We seem to be a single republican party with extreme republican (republican) and "moderate" republican (democrats). Obama and DLC are triangulating - trying to tap into wealthy (formally known as) Bush republicans who jumped ship last election and who have complete control over Dem party leadership.

I'm interested in hearing your ideas about fighting against our government who puts corporations and republicans ahead of citizens and those of us previously known as liberal Democrats. I'm looking for alternative places to invest my time and money.
