    ...but that's been the highly obvious case since the 1980s -- negative middle class and civic infrastructure returns on Republican political economic theories.

    But, since Americans continue to vote for them -- one must assume this is what they want, based on past performance.

    I'm a big believer that people should be allowed to fully enjoy the fruits of their votes. No one ever said that Democracy was fair in a capitalist nation. That's what America is and politics won't change that. (See also, Constitution.)

    The only way to change that is emigration.

      supporting Reagan was part of a larger cultural push for lies to support an entitled, power-driven minority before his 2nd run for the White House.  And, why I rejected everything that got me to support him - and my associated, former village that helped inculcate me in such - soon after that point.
