Surprise Grandma!

All of those old people, who've relied on the law and order, family value Republicans to keep them safe from the blacks and the gays and the liberals and the feminists and the young people and all of the other boogie men (and women) that trouble their dreams, I wonder how they like the idea of their Medicare disappearing?

You don't need "entitlements", do you? Of course not. So, that nice Mr. Ryan and the other good Christians that make up the GOP are going to give you "vouchers" instead of health care. Good luck with that.

And your Social Security? Well that's going to Wall Street, because they'll treat it just like it's their own. And before you know it, it will be. Just wait and see.

But whatever happens, you can sleep well, content with the knowledge that none of your tax dollars are going to fund abortions.

After the horrors of the Great Depression it took more than 30 years to build a social safety net. It wasn't perfect, but it was certainly better than nothing. And most of the heavy lifting was done by the Democrats.

It won't take nearly that long to tear it apart. And all of the damage will be done by the Republicans.

So by all means keep voting your fears. But remember "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."
