      connect with the Tea Party.

      The Democrats are going to have to take to the streets.  Luckily, more and more people are leaving the Republican Party.  They cannot call themselves "Democrats" but they hide under "Independent" which is fine with me.  Most of us are anyway.

      Wait, the tea party folks are not, they like to bully and be bullied by the Koch Brothers, et al.

    •  Draconian cuts to Social Security and Medicare (0+ / 0-)

      MIGHT invoke that response, although I seriously doubt it, unless at least two of the three cuts that Bowles-Simpson recommend, are enacted.

      Even then, considering that this country has largely become one of mostly very ill-informed and apathetic folks (if we're honest), I wouldn't count on it.

      There seems to be almost no feeling of "civic responsibility" in the US, anymore.  

      And US citizen apathy has reached such a stratospheric level, that few of our politicians worry a whole lot about public opinion.  It's really quite sad, and tragic.  :-(
