    "government doesn't matter".  It's "it doesn't matter who I vote for".

    In the last three cycles, my activism during the General has been all about propositions.  I don't have that hard a time convincing them their vote will have an impact on the outcome in those fights.  This isn't entirely a "what's my one little vote" thing.

    They just don't believe that Politicians will do anything like what they run on doing.  They know Government has a lot of power, they don't believe they have any power over Government.

    I live in an urban part of a moderately progressive state.   AM radio is dead.  Some minority language populations listen to FM radio for their basic news, but aren't that into getting tons of commentary with it.

    Fox isn't tolerated in public spaces, and the only people I know who watch it are over 60 and are committed Right-Wingers (some of my former patients).

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
