How the machine wins

No one votes. We had only 123 voters yesterday out of 900 something. In the senate race, Sandals received no votes, Pennacchio received less than 10. Also, no one pays attention. I'm sorry, but Casey is pretty weak on a lot of democratic issues. And the Inquirer's right: he faces a tough battle against Santorum. Don't get me wrong. I want to beat Santorum, but I'm disappointed that my party didn't think this through better.

It's just so sad to see Americans taking the vote for granted. This is how we ended up with Bush. Years of apathy have led us to this point, on the verge of losing some of our most valued freedoms and that makes me angry and sad. There's six months until the November elections. Educate yourself. Register if you need to. And then get out and vote.
