They're Organized, They're Well-Funded, They Plan To Cheat, And They're Worried
The Republicans are well-organized this years. They have literally billions of dollars in their war chests. They plan to disenfranchise millions of minority and elderly voters--and they're worried that they might lose after all.
There is an interesting article on MSNBC stating that Republicans are beginning to discover that their name-brand is damaged again. This time, public dislike isn't centered around one George Dubya' What's-his-name, it's centered around the entire Republican Party. Voters are finally beginning to take note of Republican political positions and also what a Romney--Ryan/Rand economic agenda would be.
Todd Akin's comment concerning rape has not only begun to get public attention, but some of the electorate is beginning to see if THEIR Republican political candidates hold similar views--or have been voting the same way. They're also beginning to wonder about what Randian plans for Social Security and medicare would do to them and their loved ones.
I don't deny this is a close election, and that it's all too likely that we'll see Republican pols elected we fought hard to defeat this year. There is no excuse for giving up. There is NO excuse for sitting out this election. There is no excuse for not voting--even in certain-loss races, a vote against a Republican is a vote of protest that would be ignored if we opt out and cop out.
