Retired baby boomer. Voted Democratic Party since Jimmy Carter election. Not very politically active or savvy before 2000. Read a lot of posts on Democratic Underground when Bush was in office. Became much more aware of the politics of DC and am pretty cynical about the chances of the middle class surviving due to the way things are now. I thought at the time and still believe that both Bush elections were stolen. The first time by the courts and the second time by tampering with the voting machines. I watch MSNBC (probably too much) and get most but not all of my information about the current state of affairs from there and reading various blogs and DU.
