Fission is already getting improved support, ALL YEAR, thru the campaign
Anything with the word "nuclear" is poison with the American Left.

I am by far the most politically involved member here, I work in campaigns. Last year I ran a campaign for 3 School Board candidates and flipped all 3 seats. I was paid $1000 per week. A grand a week for a School Board race.......
I spent 3 days in NH on my own dime, the weekend before the primary. I watched the first half of the Steelers game with Tom Ridge, I had a beer with Chris Shays.
I organize fundraisers, my next event is expected to gross 15 to 20k for a congressional candidate.

I am a member of my towns Democratic Committee, district leader in fact, an elected office. I am a member of my county's Democratic Committee.

Then I can ask the same of you.
I like the p-B11 resonance peak at 50 KV acceleration. In2 years we'll know.
