You are, if I may coin a phrase, preaching to the choir.
If you go back another generation you had an America where anyone with a job could walk into a bank and get a mortgage and realize the dream of owning his own home. Anyone white, that is.
I am aware of the desperation and despair of the American people. But I have also been following our politics since and before my first vote in ’72 and it’s very rare indeed that people have voted against a preposterous lie.
I have a cousin in the meat-packing area of Iowa where few jobs pay in double digits per hour. And a lot of people can’t find work. He’s a good guy; he knows the Mexicans are getting the jobs because they’re more skilled with knives and doesn’t go into red-faced racist rants. He voted for Trump on the jobs promises. He regrets his vote now.
Look, I would do freakin’ cartwheels if I was wrong about all this, really I would, I think Sanders would be a good president until his ticker popped as it likely would very soon. I desperately want action on global extinction(screw “climate change”), I want the conservative lunatics in mental institutions and jails, my politics are closer aligned with him than with anyone else, but I’ve never seen Americans vote their self-interest or rationally. Do you have any idea how disgusted I was to see W reelected?
The “Bernie” cult is already saying they’ll get Trump reelected if he doesn’t get the nomination. That’s freaking irrational too.
