    Many Democrats seem to be even more focused on cutting Social Security and Medicare than Republicans. When I see the kind of cuts Democrats want to make to Medicare by means testing the middle class, I just throw up my hands.  It's as if Democrats only want to represent the very, very poor and the very, very rich and the hell with the middle class.  It used to be that centrists were after that middle, but they only represent lobbies now.  

    So if I find one of those centrists on my ballot, they don't get my vote.  I have no interest in voting to send my Social Security to Wall Street.  If I wanted to do that, I'd vote to have Republicans privatize it and then it would at least be my money when it gets sent to Wall Street.
