    The GOP has been demonizing higher education. And they have been attracting ignorant Americans to their party. There IS a direct correlation. I forget who said it, but I once read that people are easier to control when they are poor, sick and ignorant. I believe that to be true. And I believe the Republican party has actively tried to keep Americans that way. And they are still at it. And succeeding.

      sucess by bringing at least some of these people back.  My dad had a 10th grade education, but he always went for Dems or liberal Republicans (that wasn't an oxymoron then).  He also placed a lot of, but not total, trust, in his union, which among other things fought for good educational funding.

      I don't mean you personally, but I have seen a number of comments here on Kos that fit the description I described.  It's gotten better since the wisconsin movement and Occupy, but there is still a way to go.  

      Also we agree on the diarist's basic point.  Santorum is wrong.
