In terms of street smart I find the gap to be wider. Conservatives are more likely to be rural, less likely to have traveled extensively, less likely to have exposure to diversity, etc. So, yeah, not exactly things that scream "street smarts" at you...
And of course we have a plan... Remember, Obama just introduced a job bill, the stimulus saved between 1 and 2 million jobs, etc. Long term we want to invest in the future through education and scientific research, kick starting green energy, etc. Now the Republicans on the other hand, what's their plan? They're just saying "**** the unemployed, lets just give even more of our GDP to the super rich"

My point remains, it is illogical for me to support through my vote a status quo I do not agree with. The Republocrats are all about the expansion of government power and privlege, the Republicans are not different from the Democrats on that front. Voting for either nets you the same. Obama or whomever the Republicans put up; peas in a pod. If I'm left with undesirables regardless, there's no reason for me to waste my vote on the main party and rather throw some support towards the third parties. We do a lot of grassroots campaigning and even in Colorado on the local levels we have been successful. On the national level, there's a lot of barriers placed there by the Republocrats to stifle and destroy true political competition.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
