The 2014 Congressional election, as well as the state elections, will be a defining time in America, determining the direction that our country will take in the future. Basically, American voters will have three alternatives.
The first alternative is completely unacceptable, leaving our government divided between progressive Democrats and reactionary Republicans, with constant bickering and hopeless gridlock, while our country’s massive problems are left unaddressed! The second alternative is even worse, turning our government over completely to Republicans and their Tea Party extremists, resulting in the rich getting richer, the poor getting poorer, and the Middle Class gradually fading away! The only hope for our country to find rational solutions to our massive problems is to return state governments to Democratic control, continue the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate and throw the Republicans and their Tea Party cohorts out of the House of Representatives!
