You might be feeling a little down about the state of politics in the US. The gridlock, political bickering, and overbearing control corporations and the rich have on this country are probably rightfully causing frustration and perhaps despair. But before you decide voting just doesn’t matter, please consider these facts that I’ll present in a series over the coming days:
Ideology over Good Candidates
To be clear, Democrats have certainly had their share of horrible candidates for public office. But I don’t think anyone can top some of the recent choices by Republicans. The Republicans decided Sarah Palin was a good Vice Presidential Candidate. Sarah Palin! In Senate races they have chosen such candidates as Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin, Paul Broun. Enough said. Your vote matters!
