I agree and disagree with your post for all the reasons you cited. 'We have entered into an era of the most uniformed voters in history'. The second part of your post said, 'Once a solid Conservative party comes on board it will be lights out for the Democrats also!'. What makes you think it would be 'lights out'? Would the admittedly-dumb voters suddenly start paying attention to what's going on in the world? I doubt it. As long as they're getting all their perks, it doesn't make a bit of difference to them. It would be akin to biting the hand that feeds them to even CONSIDER voting for the better candidate.
