Wow. Oh wow. Where do I even begin with this one?Probably for different reasons, but I agree with you. We are at serious risk of getting the default Trump second term.
Fractured. You say that 30+% is truly deplorable, that's a bad place to start. Will the real deplorables please stand up? Depending on which vantage point you take, everyone is surrounded by deplorables. To the elite class, we're unruly bottom-feeders who want free stuff from the world they own. To those who were born with nothing, the deplorables are those born with something and believe they earned it. The fact that you feel comfortable calling millions of people you don't know "deplorable" might qualify you as deplorable.
I have friends and family who aren't higher educated. They live in rural areas. They've suffered huge human losses. They cry real tears. They've worked with two hands for little compensation, but still have something in their hearts and hands to give back to another person. We don't get to choose for them. Writing them off and acting snobbly hasn't been working out too well.
Democrats are supposed to be for the working class who are taking refuge with Trump. You can't call people "deplorables" and expect them to follow you for their own good, unless you live on a plantation and purchased them as field hands, Scarlett.
Nope. I'm sitting this one out. Someone pass me the popcorn.
