A helpful note to GOP-prone voters:

If you could just get past your Nancy Pelosiphobia for a moment (hopefully before you vote), you might acknowlege that you need Democratic majorities in Congress to help you in restoring Conservativism to the Republican Party? It will take Democrats to root out the "evil-doers" so that it once again becomes a safe haven for Conservatives.

America needs your vote!
