The bible belt states are comprised of mostly low-income whites. People tricked into voting against their own best interests. At least low-income whites in the big cities vote for what's best for them. They vote like corporations. Only idealistic fools vote country over themselves.<quoted text>
Please. The only people that believe all that nonsense are those with weak minds. The Democrats say--the followers do. If Democrats say Republicans are racist, then damn it, Republicans are racist. If Democrats say Republicans are stupid, then damn it, Republicans are stupid. Sheep are really unbelievable at times. They don't even realize how they're being brainwashed.
It's not the minorities alone who tilt the big cities towards Democrats, it's lower income white areas too like the west side of Cleveland. Oh, but unlike Republicans, they vote for their own self-interest. So why is Michael Moore a staunch Democrat? What about Warren Buffet, the late Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Oprah, Howard Stern and most all of Hollywood? They all know Democrats are out to get their money.
Now the difference between people coming here from other countries to better themselves and Democrat voters is that foreigners of yesteryear benefited at the expense of nobody but themselves. Democrat voters benefit at the expense of others. Big difference.
You are correct on one thing, and that is corporations don't care about American citizens. They care about producing products or services for profit. On the other hand, Democrat politicians don't care about American people either. That's why they are letting this country slide into debt our grandchildren can never repay.
If a rich person votes against his/her financial best interests, he/she will still be rich. Stern, Moore, Buffet, Jobs, Gates, and so forth have enough money to last generations. They can afford to be idealistic. Working-class stiffs can't do the same. It's just dumb.
People who are worried about the future of their children need to teach their children that this is a global economy. Learn skills that will make you employable anywhere. Don't limit yourself to one geographical location. If a city or state goes bad, you move. Same with a country.
All I see is bitterness in the Republican party. Most Americans aren't affluent, so you have a lot of Republicans voting against their best financial interests. The same people worried about what people on food stamps are putting in their carts. If you can afford to eat steak every single day, you don't worry about what people on food stamps fill their carts with. LOL I know I don't. It's bitterness. The government is going to waste my money one way or another. If they ended all the entitlements tomorrow, they'd just waste my money on something else.
Some of you guys are like gang bangers. Draped in the colors of your flag. For what? What is that going to get you? You guys better start treating yourself as if you were corporations. Look out for number one. Life would be better. You'd be a lot less bitter. What's the difference between Republicans who can't afford to take a trip out of the country whenever they want and gangbangers in the hood who are basically in the same position? Both are fools who are more worried about the "set"(in your case the country) than themselves.
