In September, Politics Plus was excessively slow in all categories. It was so bad, I feel quite discouraged. Here is our latest summary:
In the monthly totals, a Site is any website from which someone accessed our server, a Hit is every access attempt to our server, and a File is every access attempt to our server that returned data. The difference between Hits and Files is from access attempts that were sent in error or damaged in transit and failed attempts by hackers, spammers, phishers, and Republicans to access the back end and take control of the site. Any questions?
Here is our latest Clustrmap:
ClusterMaps misses a lot of, because many visits can’t be easily traced to a location. It shows only the visits from March 2 to September 6, when it was last updated. Therefore the map is unchanged from last month.
Here are our top five articles:
A Republican Freedom 9/24/2013 1,095
Jane Smiley: Capitalist Pigs 1/17/2010 717
How Republicans Support Our Troops 5/31/2011 337
A Republican Staffer Tells the Truth! 9/5/2011 308
Last Week’s Republican Lunacies 6/9/2014 251
Several years are represented here, but at least one article from last month should have made the list.
Here are our top non-blog/news referrers:

All are down.
Here are our top blog/news referrers:
Normally I include 15 here, but these are the only ones with two or more referrals. Never before have there been so few. Putting their links here increases the ratings of their sites, so this “linkey love” is our thank you for their support.
Here are our top commentators. As the resident Big Mouth, I don’t count. Those who leave their URLs in their comment headers, also get “linkey-love” here.
Lynn Squance (117)
Joanne D (77)
Pat A (63)
Jim Phillips (33)
Jerry Critter (26)
Vivian B. (11)
Yvonne White (4)
Avril Lomas (2)
Dotti Lydon (2)

There are usually only 15, but it was so slow that everyone with only two comments was tied for 13th place.
We have 380,185 links on other websites.
Our Technorati rating no longer exists, because Technorati no longer exists as a blog rating entity. They have left a vacuum in blog authority rating. If you learn of someone filling that need before I do, please let me know.
As of Midnight, October 1, we have 51281 articles and 56,750 comments.

Perhaps where I went wrong is that I stopped promoting the blog on other sites so I could dedicate more time to Care2. My hope was that Care2 activists would promote the site to make up the difference. It worked for a while, but no more. I will have to go back to doing it myself.
The 2014 elections are only five weeks. If they take the Senate we will have two years of even worse gridlock, because they will continue to sabotage America, hoping to pre3sent themselves as saviors in 2016. We have the votes to stop them, if they actually vote.
Please get out the vote!
Thank you for everything that you do.
