1. It is maddening, isn't it.

Colorado rejects Personhood, and the elects Senator Personhood.

In my humble opinion, 2014 was the Koch Bros finest hour. They packaged their hand picked extremists so well, totally obfuscating their positions.

the people who voted like that even know what they want.

2. Well...

When only around 38% of voters take the time to vote, and the majority of that 38% are republicans, that's what happens. People want things done but they are to damned lazy to get off their ass and vote, no republicans will be able to do all kinds of shit to this country for the next 2 years. Maybe by then people will see the light and realize that both parties are NOT the same. Letting republicans run the country is simply insane.

4. Unfortunately, yes.

The GOP has historically thrived when turnout is low (which is no wonder why they're doing everything with the right to vote except expanding it). Our turnout compared to other developed countries is trash, even in presidential years. And it is indeed lazy to think that both parties are similar despite all their differences, and looking up how all the candidates stand on the issues (I'd love to hear someone say Ted Cruz and Sherrod Brown are alike, for example). I don't know if incentives should be offered to convince people to vote, or compulsory voting should be considered, or what.
