If you are unemployed, do you care about birtherism? If you are being persecuted by bill collectors, do you care about birtherism? How about if you are sick with no way to pay for health care, or worse, have a sick child with no way to pay for health care, does birtherism resonate with you?
If a friend or relative has been deported, do you care about this?
If you are homeless, or have a friend or family member who is homeless, would you care?
Suppose someone close to you was driven to suicide by economic ruin, would you care about this?
What our political elite fail to comprehend is that increasing numbers of us are in a world of hurt and we just cannot be bothered to care. Obama’s most formidable opponent is indifference. Look for historic lows in voter turnout for this election.
