8. Agreed.

This election is about a stark choice between demonstrating that Democratic principles like equality, social mobility, hope for a better tomorrow for themselves and their children, clean air and water, and the idea that humble individuals count for as much before the courts and legislatures as rich corporations and the kleptocratic Oligarchy and its TEAbagger constituency.

I have been disappointed at the President's continuing tendency to placate and accommodate when he should have come out swinging, but I think about a Huckabee or a Daniels Presidency and shudder.

If you want a shot at the US becoming a decent place for ourselves and our children, vote Democratic. If you want to help the Republicans turn the US into a Third-World style kleptocracy run by a corrupt, wealthy elite for their own short-term selfish interests at the expense of the rest of society, stay home, pat yourself on the head for your political purity, and don't bother to come to the polls where your fellow-citizens need you.
