    It's like people who claim that rape victims are raped because "they dress like sluts" -- the belief that you or your loved ones are safe in a dangerous world can be comforting, even if that belief has no relation to or basis in fact.  

    So people like "me" never have to worry about going poor since "I" do all the "right" things and believe in the right causes.  

    "Politics should be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage." -- Lucille Ball
