****! I missed out apparently. I'm a college graduate but I drive a 10 year old 4 door sedan and only RENT one house. I'm not fancy either, maybe that comes later?

Let's not forget the value in understanding the role of government and your own principles. Poor people can be libertarians too and if you want to pass legislation on say, healthcare, you may be better off worrying more about what your representative thinks about healthcare than what the president thing. Ultimately yes, having the president on board makes it easier to pass, but the role of the president is not to legislate. Social theory won't teach you that.

that's why the media exists, to educate the public thru thorough questioning politicians. Unfortunately the media/press decided that being a propaganda machine for obama was more profitable.

The problem is people are more concerned about their own party than the country, we all are guilty of this. Some on the left seem to be happy when the country is not doing well just because it hurts Trump and the Republicans and might help the Democrats.

Today's democrats put illegal aliens ahead of the millions of suffering underemployed and unemployed American citizens.

Democrats were once all for ZPG. Some liberals were so concerned about overpopulation that they chose not to have children. Today's democrats wring their hands over the environment but will fight against reducing the number of legal immigrants allowed in on an annual basis. They also fight hard against deporting illegals.

I was once a staunch democrat for the above reasons^^^^. We could count on democrats to not allow illegal aliens to displace Americans in the workforce or have Americans' wages depressed over that. Just as we could count on them when it came to protecting the environment and quality of life. Somewhere along the line the democrats did a 180. Neither party is looking out for Americans but at one time democrats could be counted on to do so.

The Democratic platform actually is already based on progressive ideas of health care as a right, investment in education, the arts, equal wage, increased minimum wage, progressive taxation for all. What they still need is not have their voting rights impinged.

It is the rural and poor whites that we need to reach for them to understand that by voting for the Republican party they are causing immeasurable harm to themselves and their children, while enriching the rich with tax breaks that comes out of their own healthcare funds. It is the poor whites who look at college education with fear and loathing, and fail to understand that it is from the universities and research that social reforms and tax policies come. They look at technical jargon that is is inaccessible to them due to lack of education and brain washing by the GOP.

What they need to do is actually do these things.
