    Somehow we have a GOP House and soon Senate.

    But yeah, voters know who their friends are, and certainly can't be hoodwinked by slogans and bullshit.

    •  The Republicans didn't win a House majority... (5+ / 0-)

      ....chasing the youth vote.

      They didn't even have a strategy. They had some tactics.

      So I'm sorry but the diarist is right, and the ability of wrinkly old white guys to tap into the youth zeitgeist should be viewed through a very skeptical lens.

      This tactic is especially cynical and borders on a non-sequitur.

      Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.

    •  I recc'd you for sarcasm (0+ / 0-)

      That's the way I read your words.

      He who has the most $$$ tends to win each election, because the $$$ is used to market "slogans and bullshit".

      We Americans tend to vote for politicians the same way we buy soap detergent - the clever jingle we keep hearing all the time eventually gets to us.  Capitalism is run on advertising.

      If a small minority of people is now stealthily ruling what was previously a democratic country, and "the people" don't seem to realize it, should anyone bother to tell them?
