A KKK rally at Gettysburg battleground is canceled because of the government shutdown. So far, this is the only positive news I've seen about the Republican attempt at minority nullification of U.S. democracy.
Meanwhile, if you don't like what Republicans are doing, take a look at New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza's map of where what he calls the "suicide caucus" resides. These people live in an old, rural, white United States that is representative of only 18 percent of us. Those of us who live somewhere else need to identify anywhere in this hinterland where we can shake some people up and put our shoulders to wheel. We can't afford, literally, to just wait til these people die off.
