It’s only January and already I wish the 2012 elections were over. I am very concerned about our democracy. It has been co-opted by money, corporations, hate groups, religion; and no longer represents the will of the people or what is most needed for the people. The PACS and Republican debates say it all. The level of disrespect, ignorance, arrogance, racism, dishonesty, hatefulness, there aren’t enough words to describe, is appalling. And this is just the primary. It’s 2012 but it’s back to the future. I for one don’t want to go there.
