"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ~W.C. Fields
My guess is the Dems are pretty poor at motivating (basically making people pissed/afraid) people to vote. Personally it feels some of the Dem narratives/sound bites/etc that do get pushed out are often delivered by people that are a bit of a turn-off to average Joe, but that's just me.
Republicans, imo, are really good at getting their sound bites out there, and really good at even getting the biggest of lies to gain enough traction people start believing it.
