I found this article very interesting from Paul Krugman.
"The driving force behind the town hall mobs is probably the same cultural and racial anxiety that's behind
the 'birther' movement.Rethugs are exploiting that anxiety to further the economic interests of their backers. Does this sound familiar? It should: Nixon advance GOP fortunes by appealing to the racial fears of working-class whites."

This has always been about race.
NeoCons want their "whites only" country back and they want it back now.
