The tea party and other elected extremists cannot bring themselves to believe that voters just aren't buying the poisonous policies they're trying to sell. So they operate under the belief that if you won't vote for them, you shouldn't vote at all.
Vice President Joe Biden got the tongues furiously wagging again after a recent meeting with black ministers in South Carolina.
A Republican Senate is pretty much an iron-clad guarantee of the return of "fiscal cliffs" and "government shutdowns" and "hostage-taking" and all the rest of the budgetary games Republicans are known for playing.
Millions of Americans are frustrated by the Obama Administration. This movement is largely defined as the "Tea Party movement" but there are millions of other Americans that would simply describe themselves as disgruntled with the Administration as we go into the 2014 elections.

I'm in the very early stages of preparing a campaign to try to run in the 2016 election for US President.
