Vote: The instrument and symbol of a freeman’s power to make a fool of himself and a wreck of his country. — Ambrose Bierce
Doomed! Because the Republicans lead with lies that policies get based on.

Someone thinks a real stimulus would help! Incredible! I guess the fact that it got us out of the first depression is irrelevant to our leaders.
