    Off Your Butts NOW!

    Fiscally Conservative Republicans have no one to vote for. My fiscally conservative father in law kissed the repub party goodbye when he finally determined the repub party is history = gone.

    Neoconservatives vote blindly for anyone that calls themselves republican

    Democrats come out to vote but not in huge numbers until the crap hits the fan. Democrats truly need to start cleaning house and bring in MORE new democrats
    who will show some backbone.

    The Green Party need to become very very loud to keep the issues on the table instead of allowing the neoconservative party and the democratic party to decide what the issues are...... and WHO the candidates should be.

    All voters especially the democrats need to get off their butts,follow politics more closely and stop relying on the BS mainstream media as a source for much of anything
    factual.

    All candidates running for any office should be allowed to participates in all debates INSTEAD of allowing the neoconservative party,the democratic party and the BS mainstream media to call the shots.

    Ralph Nader for President - he may piss off the mainstream politicians but at least he'll get the attention of the citizens who then can badger the politicians.

    Let’s demand a new system and vote in Fair Vote America : FairVote.org | Instant Runoff Voting

    Let's demand an opportunity to vote for Fair Vote and Public Finance on the next ballot.

    Incumbents say NO to the voters and YES to corrupt special interest money.

    We need public financing of campaigns. Citizens cannot afford special interest money campaigns for it is the citizens that get left out. Let citizens vote on this issue.

    Who would be against Public Funding? The special interest money providers plus their bought and paid for politicians!

    One thing for sure ... if progressives, Dems, libs stay home, if they don't get off their collective butts and vote, we may well get stuck with one of the so-called Republican candidates for president. As it is now, we will never again have an honest election in the US - the big money that controls our SCOTUS has seen to that. If we don't get money out of our political progress, we have no chance of getting our country back.

    Romney, Gingrich, Sandorum, Christie and the rest of the Clown Car Candidates - these are NOT people who are fit or able to lead our country and we all know it. The problem is,
    So, yes, I do agree with THAT part of your post -

    Poor, Luddley...

    Could it only be 3 years since the Democrats took control of the Oval Office, the House and the Senate with a landslide victory? So now you're talking about "taking back" your country? Dude...you progressives HAD the country but the people you had running it did such a bad job that the electorate voted them out in record numbers only two years later.

    Good luck getting voters to turn out for you like they did in 2008. Those young kids that grew up on hearing how bad W. was and thought Obama was going to be something new have learned that he's just another liberal Democrat from the Chicago Machine. Independents have figured out that he's never going to be a bi-partisan leader like he promised he would be. Even minorities have come to the conclusion that having Barack in the White House hasn't made their lives any better. So why would ANY of these groups kill themselves getting to the polls next November?

    Yes I will give the democrats four more years but then the pressure will be on them to become a truly populist party rather than simply pretending the way the GOP did for years. At least the GOP has dropped the pretense of being a champion of the common man, not that it did them any good.

    "Green-Thinkers"? That's an oxymoron if I ever heard it. Where are the green jobs? Barry appointed a communist former leader of an arson and looting rampage to be on his "green jobs" board only there ain't no green jobs or many other jobs either? Whine and blame Bush? That's all you lefties are good for.

    Our government is always claiming the USA is about democracy. In that case allow the citizens to practice democracy by allowing citizens to vote on these issues in 2012:

    Let's demand a new system and vote in Fair Vote America : FairVote.org | Instant Runoff Voting
    Demand a change on the next ballot.

    Let's have public financing of campaigns. Citizens cannot afford special interest money campaigns for it is the citizens that get left out. Let citizens vote on this issue.

    Bribery of elected officials and bribed officials = the most stinky of all bribery!

    Day in and day out our elected officials spend hours each day campaigning for campaign dollars.

    Can you provide some hard evidence? Or is this make believe?
