'Brainwashed' electorate

In the March 31 Bee is an account of a speaker before a Republican group who warns them that they had better get their semantics in order if they hope to prevail in 2008.

The speaker gives as an example that Republicans should not use the term "privatize" in referring to Social Security, since this sounds too much like exclusionism to the general public.

The speaker warns that unless the Republicans orient their statements in a more politically correct direction, Hillary Clinton could well be our next president.

If the word "private," which implies freedom and is a right given to all by the Founding Fathers, will alienate the American voter, it is already too late to avoid a Clinton presidency (or its equivalent).

An electorate so brainwashed by the liberal media and educators will deserve no better.
