    voters are out here, too. They are also vocal, active in their communities, and many who are retired or semi-retired are very active in registering young people, Get-Out-the-Vote, and at least where I live, constitute a large portion of the backbone of all the environmental, social justice, and community improvement groups, even in a fairly conservative rural area. If you went to an Occupy or Move To Amend meeting, the room would be filled with older white activists. You might be very surprised how many elderly white people, especially women (like me), are fully aware of the Southern Strategy and will never forget how Nixon, then Reagan, used race to destroy our country.
