    But it's not just the R's.  It's Americans.  Low info voters who apparently enjoy reality tv moreso than reality itself.

    The more pathetic and brutal the entertainment is the better.  

    Dirty laundry is nothing anymore.  The people want blood and guts - all the while being offended by breasts. Violence is King in the USA.  Cruelty wins.  There is no civility anymore.  

    Lazy, Ignorant, Violent, Sadistic.  You can't reason or even hammer reality into those traits.

    Yes the Republicans feed into the fear and hate of my country but the appetite for the fear and hate is the problem.  

    In this country, we are watching people die from lack of basic rights - food, shelter, medicine.... and we Americans are not outraged.  Our politicians are outrageous, some are even criminal (in my mind) - but there's a complete lack of justice in this country so the lying, hypocrisy and crimes against humanity will continue.  

    I live in complete TERROR of the police in my area because my son is developmentally disabled and I KNOW there is nothing we could do if they attack or kill our son because that is just how things go in good old America nowadays.  Boots on the throat.  We see the crimes going on every day and still nothing gets accomplished or fixed.  

    Everything now requires a national petition just to get some crimes out into the spotlight.  

    I do not know why Democrats don't fight back as loudly as the Republicans.  Not sure it's even the "Messaging" anymore  - it might just be that the "Masses" here are truly despicable.

    Off to go read about some more mass shootings in America.  And nothing will get resolved on that issue either.  

    America is not moving forward.   We are falling off some cliff.  

    America has lost it's humanity.

    •  It is because the 1% are united and we are not... (0+ / 0-)

      They are not the ones falling off the cliff, they are pushing the 99% off of it so they have more room to graze off the fertile pastures.

      I like your analogy to a reality TV show.  We are watching the crazy slap stick comedy of what the 1% want us to see while they take food out of the mouths of children and nobody cares.  Our lack of concern simply emboldens them for their next round of, "How-fucking-cruel-can-we-and-get-away-with-it" game show where the 1%ers wearing the red tries to out do their opponents wearing blue ties in destroying America.

      At least we elect people who SAY they care about our social issues.  Woohoo!
