    In other words, use their own ideology against them. Your idea does have a certain ironic appeal, I gotta admit.

    Old conservatives need to play the senior card against the left.

    Example: Oh please save our seniors who built the state. We can't abandon the seniors. Even if we need to divert money from classroom instruction, we have to help the seniors. God wills it. We need more Meals On Wheels. We need every senior to get a free ride to the doctor's office and the pharmacy without them having to take the bus. So let's spend our money on ParaTransit. We need more wheelchair access. Sidewalks need to be replaced if they aren't even because we could fall and break our hips. This is just a start.

    bingo. and the Popular Boxer is a left-wing senator, or a moderate one?


    hint: not the moderate option.

    Being a conservative who's home station is Camp Pendleton, CA is that conservatism as a whole is dead there. Everywhere you look is entitlement programs, legalize pot movement, and Massive Government Spending when there is no cash to spend. To all you Californians here that don't think that you are a Deep-blue state trust me you are. You guys are way Bluer then my Home State of Washington and we got a good amounts of Hippies and election stealing Dems up here.
