Maybe one of the reasons so many Americans are apathetic about voting and feel so completely helpless is because of stories like these. It’s a long piece, but I implore you to read it. The Boston Globe has never exactly been a fair and just newspaper when it comes to politics and they do manage to throw a little mud at the Democrats in this piece, but the bottom line is that both parties are willing participants in what seems to be less and less of a true democracy. It’s quite sad.
