That's where I disagree - (1) Money is the effect of success not the
cause. (2) Texas - that excuse left the station. (3) Plenty of links to
liberal lawmakers (Congress bought and paid for by our generous
voluntary giving at tax time) and (4) Religious concerns - I know many
liberals who take umbrage to the suggestion that faith is co opted by
the right. And wingnuts among the religious are easy to unscrew from
their base and marginalized.
