Not Voting Is Killing Us (and Veiled Racism explained)

I can trace the history of when things changed. The only reason we are seeing such insanity in office is that no one who was younger or a minority who had voted for Obama in the presidential election of 2008 came out to vote in 2010 when they didn't think the members of congress were "that important" (the legislative branch of government) and we can now see, if we trace back our steps in the race that that is when the Tea Baggers took over our government and caught the nation with it's pants down. What we did in 2012 was phenomenal but won't make a bit of difference because the Tea Bagger Congress is going to ruin us through obstruction and must be stopped. I don't know if our nation can wait until the election is 2014 to right itself and still survive THE FINANCIAL CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION FROM 2001 TO 2008. We will have to wait and see. There are no excuses, the congress we have now, starting with Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and ending with Ron Taylor are the problem.
One major factor that no one seems to realize is that a powerful force in our nation's legislative branch was a guy named Russ Feingold. His Wikipedia profile says that he: "...is a lawyer and politician from the U.S. state of Wisconsin. He served as a Democratic party member of the U.S. Senate from 1993 to 2011. From 1983 to 1993, Feingold was a Wisconsin State Senator representing the 27th District.
He is a recipient of the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, and cosponsored the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (McCain–Feingold Act), a major piece of campaign finance reform legislation. He was the only Senator to vote against the USA PATRIOT Act during the first vote on the legislation.
Feingold had been mentioned as a possible candidate in the 2008 Presidential election, but following the November midterm elections of 2006 he chose not to run. In 2010, Feingold lost his campaign for re-election to the US Senate to Republican Ron Johnson."
So, Russ Feingold lost to a member of the Tea Bagger Fascist Party. Anyone who finds that language offensive needs to look up the word FASCISM and find out what it really means. The type of fascism that we are dealing with in the Tea Party is Bourgeoisie leaning motives through fascist means of unification. This is the opposite of what we had in Europe, which was in favor of the Proletariat sense of values. What one hears in the speech of people like Glen Beck is the chant of the working class but asking you to vote for the owner class, which is backwards from the actual movement of Marxism and the idea of class struggle.
When I speak of veiled racism, this is what I mean. If the Tea Party voters are members of the working class, then how are they being led to vote for idiots in congress that vote for Citizens United and the idea that rich businesses are people, too? Because the liars like Beck use the language that Karl Marx used to incite the revolutionaries in Europe but tells them that the Republican / Conservatives are part of the "upper class" and in light of the fact that they aren't rich or financially in what might be considered the "owner class", then what is the distinction? Simple, what similarity do you see between the majority of the Tea Party and people who are actually owner class? You tell me. Count how many black or any other different race of people other than white people that you see in the crowd at his rally in Washington, D.C. where he said that Martin Luther King Jr. wasn't owned by black people and that the civil rights movement he led in the sixties wasn't just about black people and that, (quote) "We (we who?) need to take back OUR civil rights."
