  •  I agree that's what the Candidates (0+ / 0-)

    and elected officials in the Republican party want, because that's what their real base -- the haves and have mores -- want too. But that base doesn't show up at County Fairs, mill around and listen to stump speeches.

    So what is it these voters are hearing when Bachmann says she will get rid of Medicare? Many of them are ON Medicare, or their parents are.

    How can someone make and carry a sign that says: "Keep yur Gummint Hands offa my Medicare" and listen to their favorite candidate say, "Don't worry, we are going to get rid of Medicare when you elect me!"  

    They must be hearing something other than what the candidate is saying. Maybe "Scary brown people are taking your tax money and I'm gonna put a stop to that nonsense right now!" ?
