Not smart enough to realize they are working against their own self interest. The right wing agenda is pure capitalism. That's great for capitalists, bad for almost everyone else. Oh, you say, you're a capitalist? Really, you make all of your money from interest and dividends? If you produce a service or goods for a fee, or for a salary or for hourly wages, then you are labor. It doesn't matter what color you collar is, you are labor. It doesn't matter if you don't see it that way, the capitalists do. Trust me, that is how they see you and they are determined to have you work for less. So, go ahead and vote for the RepubliCONs, everything they have done for the last thirty years has worked out great, right? So what if before Reagan's economic "theories" were tried we were the greatest producer of finished goods in the world and now we are the greatest importer of finished goods. So what if we were the greatest crediter nation and now we are the greatest debter nation. Oh, this "conservative era" that Reagan brought in, it's been great for ordinary Americans. It just takes two incomes to raise a family now, and of course we can't afford to put our kids through school, we can't save for retirement, can't afford healthcare... Oh it's been great! Go ahead tea partiers, vote for the RepubliCONs!
