I feel you bro

I felt the same way when Santorum "surged" in Iowa. I still can't believe that real people vote for these clowns. It just makes me sad and angry. I have strongly considered leaving as well.

I haven't really made up my mind yet. Running for local office is a possibility that lurks in the back of my mind, but I worry that we are too far gone as a country. You could spend 30 years fighting against an inevitable end.

I would encourage you to at least meet a few of your state rep candidates if you have not done so already. I was surprised to find that most of them are just regular people like me. That made running for office seem a bit more attainable.
