  •  Simplistic thinking (1+ / 0-)

    My Young astutely realizes that the GOP voter base operates on instinct and emotion, rather that reason and consideration. This is exactly the sort of simplistic thinking that will appeal to the rank-and-file GOP voter, brought up on a steady diet of religiosity and capitalist doctrine.

    We've had two more examples of this simplistic reasoning in the couple of weeks with the '9-9-9' and 'flat rate 20%" tax plans.

    All the above examples are amenable to sound bites and appeal to voters who go by instinct and habit.
