    Re: Do The Rich Need Saving?

    I totally understand the rich circling the wagons and calling in their bought and paid for politicians to do their bidding.

    What I can't understand is why these rednecks living in squalor trailor parks, or in there confederated flag draped trucks, keep voting for the people who continually represent the rich and don't give 2 ****s about them. Half of their paychecks probably have a treasury welfare stamp on them. If the GOP had their way these people would be sent off to work camps or starved. Doesn't add up.

    maybe they realize that the dems scheme of addicting people to handouts is bad for the poor in the long run

    your claim about starving is rather silly

    There are folks who study how those most abused by a system adopt the mindset. Reminds me of Uncle Rukus on Boondocks.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Mostly they're just cowards who need somebody lower on the totem pole they think they can screw over. In the old south, and the sweatshops of the north as well, you could pay these idiots 10 cents more an hour than you pay minorities for the same work and they will die to maintain that difference in perceived status, it makes them think they're players with a vested interest in the status quo, 'respectable' and stuff, and never mind that as far as the upper classes are concerned they're all sub-human 'niggers', regardless of skin color and/or ethnicity. The Klan is just a variation on the mobsters of the north and perform the same services; they're useful as strikebreakers, assassins, and thugs.

    While I think we have to be careful in who we are speaking of, and should avoid genralizations, it is true that those most abused sometimes accept the view of the oppresser.

    Sociopaths and psychopaths recognize each other and tend to group together, no different than all the Ukranian and Polish lowlifes who were happy to be prison guards for the Nazis at their death camps and labor camps. Hitler's and the FreiKorps main source of recruits were thugs and street criminals and disaffected Bavarian farmers early on; sadists were particularly favored.

    In the case of poor whites who support Republicans, it's obviously the same dynamic at work. Many of them actually think there's a chance for relegalizing drunk driving and wife beating; it fits their interpretation of 'Libertarian Values'.

    Flip side of the same coin of those who hate teachers and workers I suspect. Just saying. . . .

    I don't hate either. I cannot stand those who pander to them. did it ever bother you that the richest politicians are often dems-the ones who claim they are trying to HELP the poor?
