    is they do not speak up or out to the crazy within their party. My neighbors are aware of it, but in the end, a Democrat/Liberal is still worse than any Republican.

    They are devout Mormons and truth be told are probably more devout to the Republican party. More so now that Romney is the candidate.

    They're not birthers, but parrot all the other stuff that Fox spews.

    No matter, President Obama and the Democrats are at fault for everything in America. Their view is that Republicans best represent them and America, facts be damned.

    They were genuinely suprised to learn that I, as a Democrat, an athiest, could be a decent person in their eyes. Married for 25+ years, devoted to my family above all else, accepting of other religious faiths, etc.
    I just didn't fit the stereotype.
    One question they have repeated to me is "are you sure you're a Democrat?"

    Yep. I'm sure. A very liberal and progressive Democrat at that, I might add.
    I love it. They just can't seem to correlate it.

    "but most of the people I know who lean right are more moderate and seem a little lost, frankly."
    That fits my neighbors perfectly. Couldn't agree more.
    Metaphorically they are aboard the Titanic. They know things are bad with their ship. (Republican party) The bow is below the waterline, they're just not sure if it is sinking or refuse to acknowledge that it is in grave danger of sinking.  The officers are doing a lousy job of leading after their Captain hit the iceberg.

    They are a little lost in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
