What should I send to my brother and sister-in-law in SC?Submitted by havaprayer on Thu, 01/12/2012 - 14:15
He is a 56 yo mechanical engineer, and she is a schoolteacher. He worked on the Boeing plant in Charleston, the one that the NLRB wanted to stop from opening.
We talked some politics at Christmas time, and I mentioned Romney's state health care, and my brother believes that Romney never thought it was a good idea to nationalize health care. I told him that I heard Romney say otherwise.
I think his wife is a little more liberal. She got upset when the former SC governor wanted to refuse the federal stimulus money. Being a schoolteacher, she is somewhat reliant on public funds.
My brother and I talked about corporatism and fascism, and I need to send him a better explanation of the two. He said he thought that fascism was like communism where the government owned everything.
I plan to send them the video, "I Like RP Except on Foreign Policy." What else should I send them? I don't want to overload them, but I do want them to make an informed choice.
My niece and nephew (late 20s) also live in SC. They may be democrats for all I know.
