    The Klan was a con, the GOP is now a con.  The con is always the same: to tell privileged people the problems in their lives are not the fault of the privileged people in their lives.

    •  actually it is a different con to some (3+ / 0-)

      Telling the less privileged that their problems are not caused by the priviliged, thus turning some of the less priviliged against other less privileged to support the privileged.  Look at all the middle class and lower middle class and working class who vote Repub against their own self interest.  It is an age old scam.

        It's the con game that says, "your life is unhappy because of immigrants, people on welfare, retired people, single mothers -- they're taking your tax money. The problem isn't rich people and their tax breaks." The problem isn't rich people, it's people worse off than you. Sometimes the Republicans blame the rich (in Hollywood or in the media), but usually it's the poor.
