    This is the main reason that people vote against their own best interests.  In Nebraska, liberal is a dirty word.  People are Republican because their parents are and because the repubs have done a tremendous job vilifying Democrats, liberals and progressives.  We need to do a better job of 1) Getting clear messages out to the public, and 2) Exposing the Republicans as the charlatans that they truly are.  IF being "conservative" is so righteous and noble, why the heck do they disguise every program, initiative and move they make as something else.  "Privatization" of Social Security, "Clear Skies" is anything but, WMDs.  I most certainly would have more respect for these bastards if they just said what they meant.  "I wanna take out Saddam" or "It costs big business too much money to have strict pollution regulations" or "I'm tired of this country's entitlements".   Truth to self, I can respect, whether I agree or not.  But it is very telling when one party must mask their entire agenda as something it's not to entice people to vote against their own self interests.  This is something that we need to focus on to move our country forward.

      say 'these Republicans are not your father's Republicans' in a respectful yet increasingly adamate campaign, it would change some of the borderline purple states to blue.
