What does it take to "energize" democratic voters? We just had a primary election here to determine the Democratic challenger to Duncan Hunter in the 52nd Congressional District and even though there were 5 different candidates to choose from, only roughly 25% of the registered democrats turned out.
Hunter has been in office for 26 years and is a primary figure in the Bush administrations cult of traitors and killers. Bush's approval rating although I'm sure it's higher here, is 28% for the state of California. If having 10s if not 100s of thousands of innocent civilians killed in their name doesn't "energize" them, if having theirs and their childrens economic futures flushed down the toilet doesn't energize them, if having their civil liberties taken away doesn't "energize" them, what will?
The republicans energize their base by scaring them with boogiemen. The sacred marraige institution destroyed by sex crazed gays. Abortions on every street corner. Liberals in control of the government giving away every working persons hard earned paycheck to welfare queens. And the foreigners, oh my god, what about them? They're producing children faster than the patriots can keep up with and before you know it, we'll all be paying our taxes in pesos! Pot smokers? Don't even get started on that one.
So what's it going to be? Do we have to scare our base? Shouldn't they already be scared enough? Are they so shallow that they need to be propagandized? Are they so foolish as to believe that they can ignore whats going on because they "don't trust anyone?". Have they forgotten that the US government is supposed to be run by the people for the people? Now granted, that is not really the way it is now. It's more like government for the corporations run by the corporations and that is the way it will stay if they are allowed.
What if the USA itself were a corporation? And all the citizens were stockholders? They would be having fits at the way the board of directors were destroying the company, they would demand accountability. So?
Guess what? In a sense, this country is like a corporation and people should be demanding accountability. They are being driven into financial and moral bankruptcy by the board of directors and there needs to be a house cleaning from the top down.
Will they respond? Can they pull themselves away from their beer and porn long enough to have a positive effect on this situation? Or is it hopeless? Pathetic?

How will the rest of the world treat US when this is all over? Will they frogmarch all of us in front of the graves of our victims the way US soldiers did to German citizens after the big war? Will there be another Nuremberg Trials, this time for Bush and his sorry band? Can this all be stopped before the rest of the world acts against us?
Time will tell eh?
Now back to your regular programming.......................
