You need to pepper the AARP magazines and newspaper – not to mention magazines like Reader’s Digest (very popular with elderly people) – with articles about how the Democrats have historically and recently fought for services for the elderly… and what the Republican-heavy Congress is trying to do to hurt them. Really. My own 90-yr-old mother has changed over to the Republican party because various other relatives AND HER PASTOR have convinced her to. She doesn’t see that she is shooting herself in the foot and having made the change, she won’t listen to me. But she does read!
The one thing I am not seeing in the media, talk shows, and magazine articles is a defense of the Democratic party’s historical accomplishments “for people”. A catch phrase that should be reiterated at every turn is that Democrats champion people and Republicans champion large corporations. People have short memories… they need to be reminded constantly.
The true worth of a society is how it protects and cares for its children and its elderly. The Bible tells us (in MANY verses) to be generous to the widows and orphans and to donate 1/7 of our bounty to the poor. It really couldn’t hurt to start quoting the Bible… the so-called moral majority may start to think twice… and they really need to.
