  •  The best thing about this is that (4+ / 0-)

    The Republicans understand this. A Romney operative said that "somehow  they got 'em to vote."

    But they're not capable of doing anything about it because the GOP is, at its core, an authoritarian top-down organization. And folks don't enthusiastically volunteer for something that feels exactly like being on the job.  

    Heh, even their blogs require a certain level of obedience that our benevolent leader has never expected of us.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

    •  the complete astroturfing of the tea party is (3+ / 0-)

      proof of what you're saying. Occupy lasted a long time (and is doing some great stuff now with paying off people's debt) without ever being taken over hierarchical self-serving operation. But the tea party became just another advertising gimmick for astro-turfers working for the right wing billionaires.
