The fact of the matter is that the republicans do not want an engaged constituency. People are far easier to govern if they are apathetic and uninvolved. They want us to sit down and shut up and behave like good little soldiers so they can do exactly as they please, even if what they please is outside the parameters of the law. They’ll just make it up as they go along.
