How did we get here?

My good friend Theresa often asks my why our government is so fucked up and how we got to this dark, terrible place (which, by the way, is getting WORSE BY THE DAY). I usually answer something along the lines of "the wrong people are in charge," because it ain't more complicated than that.

I read this article from Rolling Stone. It explains in five steps why our government is so completely fucked up and how we got here.  It's a political article written for people who aren't into politics. It's hilariously bitchy, in the tradition of Hunter S. Thompson and a great read.

If you read no other article on politics before the election, I urge to you read this one.

    Stay and fight or just give up and move? At this point, it's a tough call.

    Don't move. This is still a great country even with these corrupt bastards in charge. DON'T MOURN: ORGANIZE! STAY AND FIGHT! VOTE! in fact, DO MORE THAN VOTE!!
