Johnny DooWop;1059069007]Well, I live on the West Coast and I can tell you a few things: As for me, I personally agree with many Republican economic policies, and 7-8 of the 10 request in the Tea Party "contract", however the problem is they come wrapped in a package of xenophobia, jingoism, ultra-agressive neo-conservative foreign policy, dogmatic Christian principles, and a desire to still keep gays as second class citizens. Those things are equally as contradictory to the ideas are founding fathers had about the future of this country (at least the Northern ones). I think that is why a lot of "liberals" support democratic economic policies. Its the same reason why rural, poor whites support the Republican party even though their tax cuts and other policies only favor people who make over $250k a year. The poor whites don't give sh*t about the rich having tax cuts, they want gays kept as second class citizens, abortion made illegal again, marijuana to remain illegal, aggressive military policy, and hope to put someone in office who will put greater restriction on Muslims.
