Well,the main reason that the Re-Pubs continue to draw support from folks who shouldn't be giving that support...lies at the door of a lot of mega-churches.And the Re-Pub "stand"against abortion.Gay marriage and the like.The GOP knows full well that if they try to run on a strictly finances based platform,they will get swamped.Hoover in 1932 thought them a lesson they have never forgotten.So they camouflage their true objective around a smoke screen of "social issues".
Let me pause here for full disclosure.I'm Christian.Period.And I attend no mega church,and my stand on social issues,comes straight from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
And as long as the GOP can continue to blind people to their true objectives,they will continue to pull in a large percentage of poor,working class votes.
What is the answer?There always is an answer,right?And here it is relatively simple in theory,although rather tough in practice.And that answer is education.Not college or the like,but unmasking the GOP for what they REALLY are and who they REALLY support.And just as important,who they don't support.We have tools these days,that generations past could only dream of.Forums,Twitter,Facebook,text messages,unlimited communication 24-7.And on and on.And if we do not use these and other means of communicating this message to the masses,we stand to lose.What is the message?
The GOP cares squat about "social issues" excepting ones social status.In other words,only the wealthy need apply.EXCEPT on voting day.Then,and only then,they have to deceive the masses.Once votes are cast,no poor folks need not try to contact them for any reason.Till two years later.Then,the "social issues" come out of the closet again. Ans around and around we go.
Answer:start right where you are.Right now.Go talk to your neighbors.Go talk to your friends.Volunteer for a Democrat running for ANYTHING in your area.The only thing the GOP cannot stand up against?Information.Information unfiltered through their filters,information coming from the people. In years past,that was for all practical purposes,impossible.Now, it's as easy as picking up a phone,laptop,tablet,etc.And the knocking on doors,the way campaigns used to have to be conducted,that still works to.So we have six months till the election.Let's get to work. This is OUR country,not the top 2%.But work we must,for we can not compete with the flood of money pouring into Karl Roves' Super PAC's.But, and here is the kicker.We CAN out work them. And if we mean to take our country back from those who would sell us to the highest bidders-work we MUST.
