Christ on a table-leg, politics sucks ass. There is literally no issue that you will not find someone, somewhere, more than willing to passionately lie and misinform about, either in support or opposition. There are probably "citizens groups", composed of exactly five angry guys who hang out in a basement, putting together vicious distortion-based attack ads about people running for county dog catcher.
