  •  Missouri has gone nuts also (3+ / 0-)

    Here in the St. Louis metro area, the political scene used to be heavily labor Democratic. When all the social conservative dillweeds made noise a decade or two ago, many formerly loyal Dems drifted away from the "baby killer party" and gladly signed on with the GOP.  

    A lot of good union jobs are gone from the area now. Defense contractors, coal companies, and Monsanto are big here.  Try protesting them on public streets, and the local police will split your skull.

    Missouri's state legislature has evolved into a warehouse of useless GOP idiots who waste our time and taxes on such things as placing a statue of Rush Limbaugh in the state Hall of Fame. They want to enact legislation to put NRA curriculum in every Missouri first grade classroom. They reduce the meager benefits to the disabled and poor. The few brave legislators from the liberal districts are distraught.

    Reach out, find others who share your views.  Work phone banks and go door-to-door when needed, and don't take the rudeness of the ugly creatures personally. Run for office, who knows?
