  •  Um-- they also want to inflict pain (1+ / 0-)

    because they seriously think they shouldn't have to pay for someone else's education, housing, health care, food, environmental safety, etc.  (No community spirit or "there but for the grace of God" for them!) And they're dragging too many other Americans down to their level -- especially taxpayers who don't see what benefits they get from paying taxes (NOAA, FAA, FEMA infrastructure, etc is just too esoteric for them; nor do they seem to understand the need to help some so that we all benefit).

    So, sadly, we're becoming a "You're on your own and that's the way it goes" country -- for which the Dems will somehow, of course, be blamed in 2012!

    (IE, I don't disagree with you, I just think there's more to it than just defeating Obama in the GOP worldview.  And because too many Dem officials also just want to play with the Cool Kids -- aka the Big Corporations, Wall Street, and mega-rich folks -- I'm wondering what strategies WILL work to bring them around, too!)
