Disgusting, even more so because they may well succeed if they manage to make Democrats lose faith in the system and stay home instead of vote.

VOTE IN 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and every Friggin Election.

We have to get people in that will NOT tolerate this country being bought and sold to the highest bidder and will start cleaning out the corruption. We're over the edge but HAVE TO find a way to climb out of the sewer that our politicians wallow in that has brought our country down to the sorry and disgusting place we're in regarding equality, decency and a fair and INTELLIGENT path for our people and the infrastructure of this Nation. We either do it or face NO REAL AMERICAN FUTURE.

Remove Republicans/Tea Party and the Blue Dogs that are Fake as a 3 dollars bills. They continue to show their selfish, greed driven, self righteous push to austerity for the middle class and poor all while they promote their billionaire buddies and corporations for more and more personal profit and it is not just hateful and disgustingly wrong, it's destroying what's left of America. Their incessant drive to completely destroy the BEST quality that is American, separation of Church and State, is more than just THEIR point of view and morals, it IS their way to complete power and oligarchy. GOD KNOWS WE"RE TOO DAMN CLOSE TO THAT RIGHT NOW with the corrupt and insane state and federal Congress' we have.
