True, the more people that are involved, the less power special interests have...and the better off we are. Unfortunately, half of the population is still asleep and oblivious to what is going on (and it will stay that way until more states fall like California, where people have just started to pay attention, sorta).

In a lot of Southern states, people would rather vote for a criminal than ever vote for a Democrat (historically it was the other way around, but, you know, Civil Rights and all that..) The good' ol boy voters will vote for anyone who puts up the allusion of being a good moral Republican no matter how much obvious BS it is.

(See; David Vitter, Newt Gingrich, Scott DesJarlais...)

And...yeah, this is where Scott DesJarlais comes in;

You don't even have to believe the shit you say to get elected. Ahh, GOP morality....yeaaaaah, right.
