As an old fart, I am so pleased to see more fellow farts, I think it has been much easier this time around compared to 2008. People are being forced to wake up due to the economy, though I still can't convince some people my age. My aunt is in her mid eighties, my cousin and I talked her into getting a computer last year and she is now fully aware than even her beloved Bush and Cheney are corrupt. As someone said, "Good people have a hard time believing their own government is this bad". The older people who lived through WWII were very invested in that war in one way or another so bringing them around to realizing America's government can be wrong on war issues is still not an easy task but they do seem to be more willing to open their eyes then they were a couple of years ago.
