Today, Joe offers up to following conundrum:  Mid-Term Elections are Extremely Important, yet they are traditionally some of the least attended.  Why are they so important, and How can we fix that?!?

Barring The Vote, what other tools do We The People have at our disposal to influence Government in a positive manner?

Florida Election 2000

Excellent points and I'm glad you addressed the subject. I was surprised to hear Joe fall back on that tired and misguided argument. 

Nader made a fine showing in 2000. But instead of keeping the momentum going, progressives like Michael Moore and Bill Maher jumped ship and begged Nader on national TV to bow out of the 2004 race. How is a progressive movement going to succeed if its supporters abandon the movement when instant success is not achieved?
