50. "Election NIHILISM" Great,. They "Made It Happen On Purpose"
Think about it. This is the corollary to they're all crooks; it's the same everywhere (see my daily news thread of today); and it leads to "what's the point," "nothing ever changes." Stasis--that's the goal; we lay down and take a beating while they keep stealing elections. Pretty soon, we'll have the machines do the voting entirely. It will be sold to the public as an efficiency measure -- no more missing work, no long lines, no paid board of elections--just machines voting, programmed by Diebold, ESS, and the other radical right ownership groups. Wonderful.

This is the core of the fight -- getting people to act while there is still enough faith in democracy as an alternative.
