As they say, "Denial is a river in Egypt". This is how democracy is squandered. By nutcase, batsh*t crazy people who shout down reality, thinking that it will eventually change if only they drown out the opposition; by people who do the kind of math that makes them feel comfortable [credit: Jon Stewart].
These factions have to be stopped in their tracks. Or we're done.
Assholes come in all colors.
