  •  I sure hope you are right on this... (6+ / 0-)

    but I have not seen this yet with my own eyes.

    Obama is coming after your guns.

    Republicans are coming after your birth control pills

    Obama is a secret Muslim taking away your rights to be Christians

    Republicans are taking minority rights away.

    Obama is opening the borders to illegal Aliens

    Republicans want to deny gay people rights

    Obama is a secret Communist and wants to force everybody to rely on the free government stuff.

    Republicans want destroy the EPA

    I know these are not all social issues and I also know that some of them are true.  However, they are distractions that force people to get anngry and afraid of one side of the aisle so they will vote for the other side.

    All the while, both sides are working to dismantle the safety net, protect corporate interests, continue overfunding the defense department, continue to protect war criminals and multi-billion dollar corporations guilty of committing illegal actions that threw our entire world economy into a global recession while making billions of dollars doing it.  

    If you want to find true bi-partisanship, look no further than economic policies actually passed as opposed to the rhetoric shoveled around.

    I sure hope you are right about them not being able to use the wedge issues anymore but I will believe it when I see it.
