11. It is so god-damned obvious that unless the politicians suffer consequences for their
betrayal of Democratic principles, they will continue to side with the pukes in moving the US into out-and-out fascism.

They do not need our dollars, since they get all they need from the corps.

They think they do not need our "effort" since they think they can simply hire people (at minimum wage) to do the grunt work.

They know they need our votes but think that there is no where else for us to go, since only a fool would vote for a rethug.

On the first two points, they are probably correct.

On the third, they will learn that more-and-more Democrats who have been the base of the party for decades are fed up. I doubt if anyone can accurately predict how many of us will "stay home" come November '10 and November '12, but there will be some.

Each person has their own breaking point. The politicians whom we voted into office just think that we will continue to swallow their shit because we are stupid and, in fact, have NO point beyond which we cannot be pushed. After all, we have fallen for their BS time and time again. What's "one more time" to finish the wonderful job they are doing?
