    and Democrats who allegedly support them...have all been pretty much reduced to...defending Social Security and Medicare, two of the most successful government-run programs not just in U.S., but in world history.

    Republicans have even "come out of the closet." Now, they don't even seem to pretend to hide from the fact that they simply want to kill off Social Security and Medicare (although, as usually, they deceptively call their plans to kill them off "reform." And, oddly enough whenever our local Mis-representative in Washington refers to her support for those plans to kill off Social Security and Medicare as "reform" the local news media go along with it and, like a bunch of sheep, refer to her Social Security "reform" support, despite that it is anything but.

    The bottom line: the Republicans seem to be winning on all fronts...from access to unlimited amounts of political slush fund money from corporations thanks to five of the most corrupt Supreme Court Injustices in American history...to...pretty much everything else.

    When we progressives have been pretty much reduced to having to defend Social Security and Medicare....that says it all to me as far as who is winning the propaganda wars. The Republicans must be simply chortling amongst themselves about virtually having their way with us progressives on issue after issue. And my suspicion is that their full blown assault on Social Security and Medicare...has only just begun.
