The U. S. is currently ripe for a full turn over in the House of Representatives as all 435 seats are up for grabs. There are 21 Democratic, 10 Republican and 2 Independent Senate seats up for election. The problem as I see it is that the people are more than just divided, they are fractured and unable to organize on the level necessary. They are apathetic, pre-occupied with their own survival, and or distracted.


“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bull# yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote.”
― David Foster Wallace
