    They will get rid of welfare too. They are going to hire Bristol Palin as an abstinance advisor.

    We know for sure what "wrong" is. Republicans teach us that.

    We all knew this was coming, right?

    They can't target the big 3 -- SS, Medicare, Defense. That is, they can't cut spending.

    They need seniors and weapons contractors to get elected.

    (just like they needed racism to break the New Deal Coalition and the Solid south)

    But nobody understands the shell game.

    Republicans have never cut spending or curbed the growth of government.

    Reagan spent twice as much as Carter, and Bush twice as much as Clinton.

    The only people who don't know the real history of Republican spending are a small minority of uneducated patriots (many of whom post here; many of whom get their education from Mark Levine and Rush Limbaugh). These people don't have the critical faculties to question popular media.

    The GOP has always used wedge issues and national security to distract their base from the fact that they never cut spending. They use anti-abortion and anti-terrorism to get elected . . . so they can give hand-outs to corporations. It's called politics, i.e., ie to the common man, give to the special interests

    Why does the Rightwing voter trust his party so much? Why does he trust government so much?

    Bristol Palin would make an excellent choice for abstinence adviser. She's living proof that if you don't choose abstinence you most definitely can get pregnant.

    I don't understand the GOP's end game on this one. First, they want to redefine "rape", then they want to restrict a woman's options when it comes to abortion, then they want to eliminate the WIC program that helps pregnant women and children, and now they want to eliminate a program that helps women decide what is best for her and her unborn child?
