It's virtually impossible to convince lifelong democrats that their party has been largely taken over by progressives (a closet word for socialists) and is no longer the party their parents and grandparents belonged to but one intent on converting our constitutional republic into a socialist nation. Rather than educate themselves and become informed voters, they will continue to vote democrat, thus tightening the socialist noose around their own necks. They are the very people (the "useful idiots" as Lenin called such people) the Democrat Progressives are counting on to bring about the downfall of American democracy and install their socialist dream state. Didn't Lincoln predict America would fall from an enemy within? God save us.

This battle has been going on since the Tories and Whigs in this country. In history itself, it's been Good vs Evil, you know, Spiritual Warfare?

Like it or not, socialism has been a part of our culture since forever: insurance, roads, bridges, medical insurance, military insurance, taxes.... these are all examples of the government taking money from everyone and spending it for the good of the people, or citizens pooling their money together for the betterment of all other insured. Democratic socialism has been a benefit to you and others who think they did it all themselves. Unless you are a multi millionaire, how in the heck could you even THINK to vote for unregulated capitalists? If Mr. Magic Pants gets into office, capital gains will not be taxed. That means that all of those wealthy people who do nothing but take money from corporations will pay ZERO taxes, and you'll pay more

Under Romney you might be correct. Ron Paul was our best chance to "starve the beast."

Of course it's the same Democrat Party of their fathers and grandfathers. FDR ,JFK, and LBJ were the biggest socialist this country has ever known. Regan changed the direction of the New Deal, and the present party is trying to redirect this country back to the policies of FDR, JFK, and LBJ.

As the campaign settles in for the home stretch, there are many reasons to believe that the Obama campaign will have trouble closing the deal. Chief among them are the numbers: 

Unemployment
When the President took office: 7.8%
Now: 8.3%
 
Median Household Income:
When the President took office: Almost $55,000
Now: Less than $51,000
 
Price of Gas:
When the President took office: $1.85 per gallon
Now: $3.78 per gallon (more than double!)
