Re: "Democrats are coastal elites"

Why would any Democrat object that their party is the party of the coastal elites? They usually BOAST they they're the coastal elites, as the Democrat party has shifted from being "the party of the working man" to being the party of the affluent "intellectuals". You know, the sociology and art history majors. And the party of the third world poor.

snicker

Look at maps of election results. The coasts are largely blue. Democrats sneer at red states as "flyover" country.

Maybe this silly porch monkey's twit is aimed at the detached Democrat coastal elites themselves.

This wasn't always true.  When democrats built their rock on "blue collared workers"  now those turds have been ejected from the party they are called "uneducated whites"

I'm not make this up.

It's not "coastal vs. non-coastal".  it's "educated productive winners vs. uneducated unproductive losers".

The world changed, Cletus.  It's not 1890 any more and factory jobs are no longer the coming thing.  In this here 21st century you need a good education to prosper.

That's a term only used by pollsters and campaign consultants, as shorthand for not having a college degree. Both sides use the term.

And Democrats didn't abandon those whites, whites abandoned them. Nixon came up with the Southern Strategy to appeal to white racism, telling them all their problems were the fault of black and brown people. The GOP then made sure those working class jobs were shipped overseas and salaries stagnated. Now "uneducated whites" consistently vote against their own interests, choosing to support the party of aggrieved white people. There's only so much the government can do for them, they have to want to help themselves.

The best part of an education is the ability to learn things.

Unlike being a trump supporter.

Dude, Nixon was president in 74.  That was fuqing nearly half a century ago.  Most "blue collared people" weren't even born.

Um, they didn't stop the Southern Strategy with Nixon. It's been the GOP playbook ever since.

If Georgia continues to trend blue, and another state or two follows, then that will be the end of the southern strategy.

It really didn't. Between 5 to 10% of Biden's votes came from Republicans who voted straight GOP except for Trump.

I don't think it will. You still need SOMETHING to drive rural and suburban white voters to the polls, and Trump proved yet again racism works better than rational appeals. We might see the GOP double down on it.

The government turning off the economy like a faucet and blocking international travel seems kind of intrusive.

Maybe so, but people will accept this for a short time with a very good reason. Also, how would raising taxes accomplish anything worthwhile?

You're not aware Trump had the tax cuts expire next year? But only for you, not for corporations. Or that Trump turned the federal government into his own campaign apparatus and vendetta machine? And shattered the record for deficit spending?

The only true conservative values he has are those old knee-jerk issues, guns and abortion. And he advocated taking guns from people if the government thinks they MIGHT commit a crime. That's far more anti-gun than any Democrat.

So the GOP actually has no intention of creating a less intrusive government. In fact the GOP has participated in the most intrusive government actions in the past 100 years. It's almost as if the entire GOP platform is just a marketing pitch that someone(Frank Luntz) developed with no connection to reality.
