Ever Give Any Thought As To Why The Poor/Colored/Uneducated/ The Rich Liberal Elitists Always Vote Democrat?
It`s all about manipulation...and you know it. While the republicans stand on principle and accept their losses, the dems act as idealistic,opportunistic leeches.....and wail when they do not get their way.....But I digress.......What do you think ?
hagar- That leads me to say this..... The uneducated poor are the educated evil doers prey. I`ve seen it first hand.
Jack- ....Then I know you can truely understand my angle, and post......If your self-proclaimations are indeed factual.

I think you're right. They pander to these groups and act like they are in their best interest. When in reality, they aren't.
Social programs which sound good to the poor and minorities, actually hurts them. It keeps them dependant on the government dole, and decreases opportunities for them. They take away incentive to work hard to get ahead. People usually always take the path of least resistence. The tax increases needed to fund these programs hurts the poor, middle class and the people that control the captial needed to create more jobs for the poor and unskilled workers. Plus, tax increases on businesses just gets passed onto the consumers, and if your poor, you feel those increases in prices on services and goods much more than the average to high income people.
Affirmative action is a joke. It creates more contempt for minorities amongst the majority. Plus it favors blacks and hispanics over any other race. There are many examples of Asians with high SAT scores that didn't get into colleges because the Asian quota was already filled. It also makes many minorities feel like they are less intelligent since they need the government to get them jobs or accepted to college.
Rich liberals have some kind of wealth guilt, and feel like they need to redistribute wealth to help those that aren't fortunate enough to live like they do. Problem is, most of these rich liberals know how to protect their money in tax shelters, to avoid being hit from the high tax increases they support. They'll readily redistribute everyone elses money, but not there own.
The uneducated are usually swayed by popular culture or what the majority thinks, even if it differs from their own views. They rarely look into topics and find out the facts. They just rely on what they hear every where else. And unfortunately for conservatives, popular culture (movies, music, art, Hollywood actors), the education system (public schools and colleges), and the media (both printed and televised) are full of liberal bias.

You bring up a good point. But many people of color do vote Republican, but with the hatemongers pushing an agenda there are many of color that vote in a block and that's a known fact unless the liberal media lies about that also. There are far more people, not of color on welfare, mostly up north just check the government stats at gov.org. % wise it's the other way around, but it is hard when you start with nothing. i'm not making excuses.
Also they are manipulated by people like "hijack" as we all well know. The others you speak of are know socialist that would rather destroy their country than love it. So you make a valid point and i have rabbled on enough. I feel that the democrats should be given psychological tests. I have friends that deal with some and they are as most have stated here losers andi never in my life thing it is good to steal as they do.
With that in mind I feel there is so much voter fraud with running them all around to vote in several places were they get assistance illegally from several different counties, that there are only about 30% real democrats and pray that the republicans have better computer programmers than them. Just think about it, how many libs do you see on the net, % wise. Take care. Satan works to fool the people, so beware of them. Much better answers than this and they are al true, except the evil liberal ones. Naw kidding, about that, but not the rest.

There is truth to what you are saying though many will just see the adjective you chose to use and call you a racist. That is part of the way the democrats manipulate their voter base. By fanning the flames of racial tension. You are called a racist for using the word colored, but the NAACP, are they considered racist for promoting the advancement of colored people? The continual heightening of tensions between classes and races is pure manipulation to create an Us vs. Them scenario. The Democrats want to market themselves as standing up fo the little guy. To do that they have to convince their voters that they are small weak and powerless. They have to keep them dependent and afraid. And they have to convince them that someone else is out to get them and only the Democrats are looking out for them. The Republicans are the party of personal empowerment. They tell their voters they are strong enough to make it. Republicans don't benefit from inciting fear. But Democrats benefit from making people believe that republicans are inciting fear. It plays right into their, "you are a victim" plan. And Wealthy Democrats are those who believed the lies and feel guilty about being rich. Now they think they have the right to redistribute everyone else's wealth to soothe their guilty conscience. Yes it is manipulation.

The more voters that adhere to a certain doctrine the more political power one gains. (simple Machiavelli)
Few recognize today that our Country is a Representative Republic. It began failing with the passage of the 16th and 17th amendments.
Most people, black, white, yellow, brown or red vote as their parents did or as their "supposed leadership" recommends.
Labors leaders tell their members to vote for a specific candidate, as do leaders of certain caucuses such as Jesse Jackson, or the hispanic leaders. What the in the trench person needs to realize is the cost of following CERTAIN LEADERS. Indifference toward personal responsibility has gotten to be the prevalent line of thinking in the minds of many voters. "My vote" doesn't count, when in fact it truly does. Each person does make an impact on the outcome of how your community, state or federal government is ran.
We need to look at how our government continues to spend OUR money. it's not about rich and poor, it's about ALL of us.
My view is we are witnessing the end of the Republic in the very near future unless "we the people" do something to stop the opportunism and corruption of both parties at the highest level.
Bush is not a friend, nor is, Reid, Pelosi, Hillary Clinton.
Immigration will be the straw that breaks the back of our country. When it becomes such that the influence of simple demographics can be influenced by one voting block, our country is destined for the scrapheap of Republics of the past.
Freedom and Liberty are at stake, the outcome is slavery, indifference and apathy.
"A democracy is always temporary"
About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature ; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years.
During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage "

The rich elitists WANT an underclass to buy votes from to keep them in power and what better way to do that than to KEEP them uneducated and poor. AND to have people like Jesse and Al fan and fuel the flames of racism in that community.
When I point out the hypocrisy I get called a racist. I would love nothing better than to see all of them with jobs, have a good eduction, and be self-sufficient. I'm a Republican - I would not want my party to buy votes...they have to EARN them by doing the RIGHT thing!

I love the liberal with the gorilla face (liberal's only look scary) who likes to point out that the Blue States have the highest education. That is a circumstance of having large cities with businesses that have high educational requirements being located there. It skews the average. The rest of the state is just as stupid as any of the Red States. Look at Detroit Michigan. Educationally, it is one of the stupidest cities in the United States and yet it votes solidly Democrat, year after year.

The poor want socialism and free crap. The rich liberals feel guilty about being rich and also want wealth redistribution because they think that should be in charge of that because others are not smart enough to be able to make their own decisions. They want total control and socialized medicine because that is another way to control people.. think about it.. what better way to control people than have them have to rely on you for for health and you have to vote for me or it will be taken away.

Honestly, by using the word 'colored', I can't help but think that the needle's been stuck so long on one LP track that it now qualifies as a rut. Please examine some of those Republican principles and "accepting losses" as they apply to corporate 'leeching':
*** WAL-MART Costs Taxpayers $1,557,000,000 to Support its Employees...
Wal-mart keeps it's wage cost so low and benefits cost so high that state-funded (taxpayer $s) assistance programs end up footing the bill. This "principled" corporation does provide information to employees about public assistance programs in their local areas. Watch the documentary, "Wal-mart: The High Cost of Low Price", this link cites stats and sources:
According to Center for Responsive Politics, Wal-Mart corporate political contributions: $467K, 97% to Republicans.
*** Paul Singer, a billionaire who's made all his money from 'vulture funds', is a very big donor to the Republican Party and to Bush's campaign. Singer has pledged to raise $15 million for Giuliani. Bush did nothing at the G8 Summit to stop vulture funds. Want to bet that Giuliani won't either?
-- “Vulture Fund” Articles:
-- Paul Singer's political contributions:
-- The Giuliani Papers - Rudy's Money:
*** In a State of the Union address, Bush stated that our energy problems today were because we didn't have an Energy Policy before. What he didn't mention was the reason for that was because Reagan/Bush, Sr. dismantled the one Jimmy Carter had implemented 30 years ago. Bush's 'new & improved' Energy Plan provides $8 billion dollars in 'welfare' payments to the oil business, and rebates to buy gas-guzzling Hummers.
-- 28 Years Later - a comparison:
-- April 18, 1977
*** Bush has also tried to tell us that there's such a thing as "clean coal", yet the reality shows a very dirty picture...
Shortly after Bush took office, Cheney ordered a 90 day review of pending EPA violations cases. Instead of the EPA conducting the review, as was normal, the EPA was ordered conduct the review “in consultation with the energy department. The result of this review was the Clear Skies” initiative which (1) eliminated mandatory pollution caps for individual plants in favor of industry-wide levels allowing companies to buy and sell emissions credits and (2) states that no improvements in pollution levels would be required of any companies for at least 10 years and the pending cases were dropped. Bush and the RNC, in return, got 4.8 million dollars in campaign contributions from the electric utility industry to the Bush campaign, the Republican National Committee and the innagural committee. That total included 1.85 million from the four largest utilities facing NSR enforcement actions, and another $424,770 from five other utilities also facing NSR actions.
*** Remember the furor that US port security could be contracted to Saudi Arabia interests? That was just a piece of the 'privatization pie'. Our nation's infrastructures are being sold out to the highest bidders, often foreign interests.
-- Privatization and Highway trust fund is almost broke:
"On the national level, the highway trust fund is about to go broke. When President Bush took office the fund had a $23 billion surplus, but it is expected to be running a deficit by next year in part because Bush killed an increase in gas taxes two years ago."
-- The Highwaymen - Why you could soon be paying Wall Street investors, Australian bankers, and Spanish builders for the privilege of driving on American roads:
In politics, it is especially important to "follow the money" because MONEY is the 'principle' of politics and that 'principle' does not follow strict party lines! These example do, but that is in response to the inherent bias of the question. I hope you'll take a peek at some of these articles anyway, before choosing the best answer that parrots your bias.
