    There has been a gigantic lie floating around for generations -- That Republicans are the party of the rich and that dims are the party of the working man and woman.

    Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Imagine that? :disbelief:

    The wealthiest people on the Planet are dims -- Bezos, Buffet, etc, etc, etc.

    The wealthiest companies on the planet are all dim Companies -- Apple, Alphabet, etc, etc, etc, etc.

    The wealthy contribute ot dims by a yuge margin over Republicans.

    A little context


    The Democrats: The Party Of The Wealthy!
    Ace of Spades HQ

    There is a lazy assumption among the media (wow...that never happens!) that the Republican Party is in its essence for the wealthy, and the Democrat Party is for the little man...the real people of America.

    But anyone who has been paying attention has realized by now that the concentration of wealth in the pure blue cities and in the tech sector is overwhelmingly leftist.

    Dem Dot Coms vs. Trump's Soldiers and Steelworkers

    Providing free health care for illegal aliens at taxpayer expense may not be very popular nationwide, but is commonplace in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Boston. Gun control is a loser nationwide, but a sure thing in the big blue cities. Even proposals to take away private health plans, allow rapists and terrorists to vote from prison, and open the border pick up more support there.

    The 2020 Democrats aren’t speaking to Americans as a whole. Instead they’re addressing wealthy donors from 6 major cities, and some of their satellite areas, whose money they need to be able to buy teams, ads and consultants to help them win in places like New Hampshire and Iowa.

    New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles show up in the top 5 donor cities for most of the top 2020 candidates, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg. Boston shows up in the top 10, not only for Bernie and Warren, but for Kamala and Buttigieg. Seattle appears in the top 10 for Bernie, Warren, and Buttigieg. Washington D.C. features in the top 10 for Bernie, Booker, Warren, Kamala, and Buttigieg. And the rest of America doesn’t really matter.

    The Republican Party in my dreams and fantasies would be hammering the Democrats as out-of-touch billionaires who are insulated from financial and social upheaval because they have been stealing from real Americans for years. But that Republican Party does not exist. President Trump does make clear distinctions, like his marvelous criticisms of the four whores of the apocalypse, but without the support of his party he is a voice in the wilderness.


    Imagine a concerted effort to demonize the mega-wealthy Democrat donor class. Many of them are wealthier than Trump, so the ads would practically write themselves...


    You folks that think the dim party is for the working man? You're stupid.

    They're for the rich. The ruling class. The 'Royals' in the media and in the political circles. It's why they hate Trump so much. He's not one of them. He's not a 'Royal' He wasn't born into the Ruling Class like they were.

    They only talk shit about helping the poor so they can get their votes. They do nothing for the poor other than to keep them in poverty, there at the beck and call of the dim party come election time.

    But, to be perfectly honest with you, I've never been able to spot the difference, collectively, between 'poor' and 'stupid'

    Maybe because there isn't one.

    And that's why they vote dim every cycle

    The republicans still largely favor policies that favor the wealthy while ignoring the poor. Immigration being perhaps the one exception. What you are getting at however is part of the reason I no longer support democrats. They come up with these Ivory Tower solutions that are oriented toward large urban areas as if that would work everywhere while ignoring that the true costs will land outside their large urban areas like the $15 MW.

    /——/ Until President Trump came along, no Republican stood up to the democRATs and LSM. They were afraid of — well I don’t know what— but they just rolled over and played dead. Those days are gone thankfully.

    The Media.

    They really ARE The Enemy of The People.

    Part of the 'Ruling Class'. They mingle with the 'Royals' and are welcome in their circles.

    The GOP has generally supported policies that favor the rich over the poor and middle class. The ACA was designed to give health insurance to the uninsured. None of which are rich. The Trump tax bill disproportionately favors the rich. The GOP has increased the amount of money that can be inherited tax-free. The GOP is blatantly anti-union.

    The GOP has earned their reputation.

    Every word of that post is a lie.

    The 'poor' get Medicaid. The 'Middle Class' get their insurance at work.

    The ACA was designed to fuck the small Businessman and woman while enriching the Insurance Companies. United Health Care went from a medium-sized Company in 2008 to one of the biggest on the planet as of now.

    While the ACA does help some people, it hurts far, FAR more people than it helps. Me, personally, included.


    Trump's Tax Bill seriously FUCKS the rich. The vast majority of whom live in Blue States with High State and Local Taxes.

    Trump's limits on how much of those taxes the Filthy rich dimocrap scum in those States can deduct is what's got the dimocrap scum rich worked up.

    You're (hopefully) a victim of misinformation designed to fool the naive.

    Or.....

    ...You're just stupid.

    All of Trump/GOP's economic plans that raised wages and raised employment favor the non-wealthy.

    That's why Democrats opposed them all.
