  •  Very disturbing diary... (5+ / 0-)

    This is bad for the future of our country.  MSNBC pundits say that the GOP is in a downward spiral, but when I read diaries like this, you can't prove it to me.  The GOP is blocking Obama appointees, the Violence Against Women Act, immigration reform and gun safety laws.  In addition, the GOP led Supreme Court may eviscerate the 1965 Voting Rights Act this year.  Some Democratic domination, huh?

    I don't know how the US is going to hold itself together as a country when you've got vast areas where the population holds such reactionary views.  I don't expect everyone to be as liberal as I am; that would be impossible.  It would be nice if conservatives still believed in some form of government, however, instead of a combination of plutocracy and anarchy.  

    I agree with some of the comments above in which people blame the Democratic party.  We need a 50-state strategy.  We all know that even in the bluest precinct, some Tea Bagger is going to run, with GOP monetary support.  I live in a bright blue county and yet a FASCIST Obama-hating newspaper is delivered to us FOR FREE, known as the Washington Inquirer.  It's apparently bankrolled at a loss by some reactionary billionaire, who puts out some version of this disgusting glorified cat's box liner all over the country.  

    The Democrats need to fund their own media, even if they lose money (they will -- Fox ran at a loss for years).  The party also needs to find candidates to contest Republicans in all races, even if the chance of winning is small.  Even if we lose in these red areas, we can at least give some of our ideas currency.  

    That said, this is one depressing diary.
