5. K&R You gotta ask yourself why
they keep getting elected. My mother used to say that a country got the government it deserved. Over and over I keep running into guys out of work for two years, no insurance, losing their homes who say they vote republican because the Democrats are commie/terrorists. They believe the Democrats are fighting the noble republicans to keep hurting people and take away their freedom. In the face of such ignorance and sheer stupidity it is tempting to just let them rot in their own stew. Only trouble is that the rest of us are in the same pot with them.

I can understand, not agree with, rich people with no conscience or moral center voting for their own selfish interests. Those are soulless assholes. But the idiots who keep voting for the very ghouls who are torturing them is just too much.

Once again. Krugman rules.
