The America that elected Joe Biden is well-educated, diverse, and an economic powerhouse. The America that supports Trump is economically less than half its size, heavily dependent on Biden’s United States and, self-destructively, it seeks to undermine the sources of well-being on which it relies.
According to a new study of election results from the Brookings Institution, of the 96 percent of all counties from which we currently have results, the 2,497 that Trump won are responsible for 29 percent of U.S. economic output. The 477 counties that Biden won equal 70 percent of GDP. As the study reports, “Blue and red America reflect two very different economies: one oriented to diverse, often college-educated workers in professional digital services occupations, and the other whiter, less educated and more dependent on traditional industries.”
Yup, until half or more of the democratic party stops being snooty assholes, we're kind of fucked.This may be of interest
Don't confuse the DNC with individual voters. I'm a member of my county party, but in no way a tool of the corporations. In fact, I'm working on industrial cooperatives, which would be literal ownership of the means of production. They would function like electric, farm, and bank (credit union) co-ops, which are owned by their members, but oriented towards making & building things.I wouldn't get my hopes up for the Democratic Party. They're just as much in the pockets of corporations as the Republicans are. The system is functioning as intended. So long as our choices are limited to the lesser of two evils, our government isn't going to get much better.
