15. That's not going to happen before this November.

I agree that this is important, but it's not the immediate problem; the solution requires that we make the necessary gains THIS election. If we don't turn the GOPee congressional majorities into minorities this fall, we will have tremendous difficulty overriding CU, getting better judges, etc., come January. If Repugs still hold a majority in either house then, they will throw up more of their tired old obstructionism, and accomplishing anything constructive may be a pipe dream.

Bottom line: we have to kick their asses out NOW. Get. Out. the Effing. VOTE! Register more voters, work the phones, raise the money, and GET PEOPLE to the polls! Toss out the Darrell Issas, Loui Gohmerts, Trey Gowdys, Paul Brouns, etc.; Ron Johnson, Roy Blunt, and adozen or so other GOPee Senators need to go too.
