I can sort of see how rich folks would get behind the Republican Party, or rich white men folk, anyway. Why women, people of any color (I mean, ANY color, so watch out, tanorexics), gays, those of us walking upright..would want to be one is beyond me, but I guess we all have a bit of the masochist in us. Come on. Admit it, you read Shades of Grey this year and you liked it.
But what I can't seem to understand, is why people who the Republican Party HATES still gets with it? I'm talking about poor people, poor WORKING people, people on welfare, women (any kind), gay people, anyone who ever has sex (they're jealous!) but especially those poor people. They seem to vote against their best interest every time, almost like they can't help themselves. It reminds me of my kids-Me:" Here, this pink plate has more m&m's on it. Do you want it?" Them:" Nooooooo!!!!!!. I only like blue plates. I hate pink plates!". Me:" But the pink one has more on it.". Them: "I don't care. I hate pink. M&M's on a pink plate taste yucky." Total logic.
And these people do it all the time:
"I'm against healthcare for everyone, especially me! If I need surgery, I'll just pay for it myself like a good american. What? It's $50,000 to have my cancerous tumor removed? Oh yes, please pay for it, but don't pay for it for the little girl down the street. Her parents are on welfare. Tough break for her, but I'm not letting my tax dollars help her stay alive. But pay for mine, please, will you? Oh, and keep Government out of my Medicare,will you? So annoying how Government wants to run my Medicare!"
"Trickle down economics has helped me so far, just look at the tarpaper roof I have. Its new! In a few years, when I am a millionaire because my used hubcap business is gonna take off, I don't want anyone taking my money to help poor people who live in shacks with tar paper roofs!"
Amazing. And scary.
