True story. My sister lives with her husband in Nevada. He is a few years younger than her and she is 62 and collects Social Security. Now this guy worked in a mine and recently lost his job. Living in Nevada in a town of a few hundred people miles away from anything, they are very, very insulated. Like most Americans. Before he lost his job, I told her to stop buying and start saving. She asked "Why"? I told her the country was in a recession. She said, "Oh, maybe that's why no one will hire me". They didn't vote in the last election. They didn't know anything about Nevada politics. They live in a small house way out in the middle of nowhere next to a town of a couple of hundred people. So she decided to go back to school and see if she could learn a skill so she could make a little extra money. The college, a 45 minute drive to one of it's "mine campuses", had a "seniors program" that was cut. So now she pays full cost. So last night, I Skyped her and we talked to her about the next election. We try not to talk politics because of her conservative leanings, but last night, she said she would never vote for a Republican. I asked why? She said they want to cut her benefits that she worked all her life for and they cut education. I believe the word she used was "despicable". Now here is someone totally insulated, a senior (one of the main stays of Republican votes), who never follows politics but who knows she has been threatened by Republican policies. So that brings up the point. If Republicans have lost gays, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, teachers, feminists and many women's votes (cutting planned parenthood), many police and other union members, atheists, much of the middle class and so many other groups, including many seniors, who is left to vote Republican? What policy are they going to run on? Not "Jobs jobs jobs". That bird has flown the coop. What does that leave? Abortion's not working. Gay right's are out. After the Georgia debacle, no one talks much about immigration. What's left? I'm just curious. What policies will Republicans run on and who will vote for them? By the way, Skype is a great deal. We both have cameras and talk to each other a couple of times a week. It's almost like the person is in the same room as you. She shows me what she's working on. Shows me pictures her grand kids made. I talk to her husband. It's like sitting at the same table.
