I really don’t think they are educable. Imagine if Romney and the GO-PACS had used their billion bucks to just bus them to the polls and slipped them a bottle and a toke.
Does anyone really think anyone can explain economics to these people ? My vote for the highest bidder is as close as their comprehension of capitalism extends.
Been there, done that. It is not as difficult as you think. It has the virtue of simply having never been tried by most people.
"Can't the Government just print some more money?"
"Son, sit down and let me explain Inflation to you ..."
It takes time and is difficult, which is why it isn't done.
