15. You have no problem letting MI fall into the hands of Bush style repub?
It is not unrealistic that the repubs in our MI government would try to ban abortion like the repubs in SD, or make leaving the state for an abortion illegal like some repubs in OH would like, or make Christianity the offical religion of the state like repubs in MO want. I am surprised that is fine with you, and I can't relate at all. If I sat around and did nothing to stop republicans from taking over and ruining our country, I couldn't live with myself.

Hillary Clinton is my absolute last choice for the dem nomination, but I would never withhold my vote from her in a general election. Doing nothing and increasing the odds that we have 4 to 8 years of President Jeb Bush or President Frist... that would weigh too much on my conscience. Just as aiding a DeVos win in anyway shape or form would weigh on my conscience.

Look at all those people who thought that there was "no difference" between Bush and Gore in the 2000 election. It only a few months of Bush in office to realize how wrong they were. By 2004, 85% of Nader voters learned their mistake and bailed on him. Most people only learn the hard way, and I guarantee that people who don't vote for Granholm (unless you are a big fan of Bush style republicans of course) will learn some hard lessons if DeVos wins.
