By all the standard measures, I “should” be a hardcore Leftist Democrat.
I have two grad degrees. I’ve lived in 4 foreign countries. I speak 3 languages. I work for banks. I know these types. I went to school with them. I see plenty of of them at work. I happen to like classical music and watch overwhelmingly documentaries (mostly BBC). I’m not religious.
So am I one of them? Hell no. And I never will be. I would so much rather hang out with normal regular people. They’re a lot less arrogant, a lot less judgmental, and they tend to be both friendlier and happier people from my experience. I’m a Southerner, am proud to be so and feel no need to apologize to anyone for it. I value my right to bear arms and exercise it. I don’t want the government to “protect” me. I ask for nothing by way of services or handouts....but...I DEMAND to be left alone. That’s it. Yes its really that simple. Don’t try to tell me how to live, don’t try to take away my choices, keep taxes at a reasonable level.
The Leftists just can’t manage to do that.
I don’t think it will be a winning strategy even in 20-30 years.
The US is the only country on earth where “hispanic” is considered an ethnic group. The truth is “hispanic” is no more an ethnic group than “American” is an ethnic group. Most “hispanics” in the US are in fact......White. Their rates of intermarriage are 50% in the first generation. Most do actually learn English. Like all previous immigrant waves before them, they will steadily go more and more native over time. Its already happening. Trump garnered more of the “hispanic” vote than Romney did.
They wrote them off over 20 years ago... but the working class whites have finally figured it out
Gosh - if hearing how I am a “White Privileged Racist of the worst kind” over the years hasn’t brought me to them - what more can they do to win me over?
my tagline becomes more valid each day...
Where’s this pinhead been? Obama declared this during his campaign already.
I’ve about had it with Democrats calling Republicans stupid. The Democrats use that word so much, one would think they are just projecting their own intellectual ability.
I have a great idea! Add a literacy test. Don’t let people vote that can’t read at least to a 8th grade level. That will only leave super intelligent liberals to vote and all will be well! Happy happy joy joy!
