You’re talking as if RINOs are this country. Once they get to DC they lose all perspective. THIS COUNTRY IS conservative by and large.
This country is not conservative any more. We are an insular group. We listen to each other and think that much of the rest of the company thinks like us. They don’t. The schools have indoctrinated the young people from kindergarten to college. Many of them now think that socialism is the way to go. Many of them are buried in mountains of college debt with degrees that can’t get them a job. They want relief and expect the government to give it to them. Why do you think that Bernie Sanders got so many of their votes?
Minorities are addicted to welfare and food stamps. Lyndon Johnson, with a push from the 1964 Goldwater campaign, which opposed the Civil Rights Act of that year, changed a huge number of them into Democrats. Now amnesty for illegal aliens presents us with a no-win situation. If we approve of it, we say that our country has no borders, and we don’t get their vote any way. If we oppose it, we are labeled as 'bigots."
The people who “pull the wagon” in this country - the small business owners, the people to go to work every day, the inventors and innovators - are all getting squeezed and screwed. We are out voted and have no say because the establishment Republican Party has failed us. Those guys get to Washington and the system buys them out if they ever had any interest in changing things in the first place.
I wish I could be more optimistic. There are many old guys of my generation who hope that our money holds out. On paper I might look “rich,” but if the Democrats start attacking our capital and savings as well as our income, all of that could change.
The only saving grace might be that the rich Democrats don’t want to have their savings taken away from them either. Some of them really make me angry. Their attitude is, “I made my money and now I want to change the world by making it socialist. YOU don’t deserve have a chance to do what I did because that’s not fair.” Screw them! I hate that attitude.
