    •  Yes. (7+ / 0-)

      I'm making my plans to talk to my neighbor who moved from independent to GOP this go round.  She was disappointed in the economy yet did not have any idea what Romney's economic plan was.  I had suggested that she flesh that out before deciding to vote.  I doubt she did but I will be working on her to educate herself a bit more.  A little bit at a time.

          Neighbor is fairly low information like a lot of voters.  That isn't willful ignorance but one of lack of time.  So you fall back on what you see as reliable sources of guidance.  So I planted a seed - which she may or may not have followed up on (but then again it is difficult to nail down since the answer is "all of the above" with Romney).  So I plan to work the edges and allow HCR take effect.  I'll let the women of the Senate take effect.  Hopefully we will see good tax code and increase in revenues and significant economic movement as a result.  And I will work the edges.

            That's what I call what you're doing and it is vitally important.

            Thank you for working at the edges.    :)
