28. Same here.

I think that's what makes this stuff so painful to watch. Your parents & my sister are GOOD PEOPLE...there for their family, and always willing to lend a hand. You and I have been fortunate enough to have that in our lives, but a lot of people don't, and they are falling by the wayside.

I keep thinking back to a speech I heard Gore Vidal give back in the 80's. He said part of the genius of the Reagan Administration is that they could not only get people to VOTE against their own best interest, they get people to THINK against their own best interest. Someone here at DU posted a map last night highlighting the states that pay the lowest taxes, due to the fact that they have so many poor people in them, and it's almost solidly southern, republican states. We've all seen the interviews with people that are living in dirt poor environments who just attack any Democrat as a "socialist". It really makes me shake my head in sadness.
