  •  A lot of those federal employees are wingnuts (0+ / 0-)

       They don't mind giving up their paychecks for The Cause.

    •  Are you sure? (0+ / 0-)

      Could we have some statistics? Background facts? My personal experience as a civil servant/government employee with 5 different federal agencies including 3 in N.Va. (which I know is not probative), is that it was about 50/50 D/R until approximately 2003 and after. Then career R's began bailing at an ever-increasing rate. This included my civil service/retired military husband, who changed his voter registration to Democrat despite the fact that he had only previously voted for one D in his life, and that was his uncle. (He didn't vote in 2000. At that point he couldn't bring himself to vote for a Democrat, but didn't want to cancel my vote.)

      •  Might be different in the non-MIC part of govt (0+ / 0-)

          I work mainly in a MIC milieu. Lots and lots of wingnuts who consume Fox News like it was iced tea. They'll gladly sacrifice their paychecks and careers if it means that poor people get screwed.
