Three Days to Go

Spent the better part of the day on the phone to Pennsylvania, getting out the Democratic vote. Hard work. Boring work. Unrewarding work. It’s what the Repugs are legendary for, so I guess Progressives have to delve into retail hand-to-hand, digital politics sometimes. No point in walking my precincts, here: everyone around where I live - most anyways - knows what’s what and who’s who. The central fronts in the war against anti-terrorist-terrorism are in other states. God Bless our soldiers there.

You are so right. The political structure in our democracy renders most voters across the U.S. to the sidelines.

Good for you in making a differnce.

The only reason why this year's election is a cliffhanger is a lack of inspiration among the Democrats. There is another, more important reason, and that is the way our country's electoral structures favor the Republican Party.

Although the Senate contains 55 Republicans and 44 Democrats, those 44 Democrats represent more Americans than the 55 Republicans. Simply put, the Republican Party doesn't have to capture anything like a popular majority to retain its hold on power.
