How dumb do conservatives think America is?
Remember their famous Contract with America whose promises swept them into power in 1994? They promised, among others, fiscal responsibility and personal responsibility. Within a decade we had a Republican Congress rubber stamping Bush's outrageous deficit spending during a period of economic expansion when we should have been saving like we did under Bill Clinton. And we had Jack Abramoff and a web of Republican corruption in Congress. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contract_with_America#Content_of_the_Contract In other words, we have a materially breached contract with massive damages to America and no remedy or accountability by Republicans.
Now, after only about a year since Bush and three years since our last Republican majority of wastrels in Congress, we have the "Contract from America" which promises, among others, more fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets, and ending "runaway government spending" and stopping the "pork", i.e. corruption, in Congress. http://www.thecontract.org/ In other words, we have a good case for fraud in the inducement.
This Contract from America is clearly aimed at people who are, to put it as gently as I can, gullible.
