You can tell one who drank the Kool-Aid when they refer to themselves as an 'educated voter'.

Brainwashing is so easy when you play to someone's ego!
That explains all of the self proclaimed highly educated liberals, all obviously brainwashed - who else would actually choose Clinton?

Or are you an elitist who has figured out that the poor blacks are needed to keep the base of the democratic party and they are doing things right it is the whites who are wrong.
what exactly is a good idea?
those who have no education do not have access to information that will help them understand how voting for Republicans hurt their own interest. this is the violence perpetrated on a population by denying them education. Education and healthcare are basic rights for a democracy to function for its people.

Well, not really, they just do not get a full grasp on those consequences until they are the one that is negatively affected by the policies of those they elected, meaning, after the fact. Then again, Lessons in life are best remembered when they are painful, and there will be plenty of pain to go around in the years ahead. See, there is a bright side to anything, sorta..........

You obviously don't understand anything, but I bet you watch a lot of MSNBC. Democrats don't 'give' rights to anyone. Democrats do nothing to help "working people" but do a whole lot to help their donors - the rich. You're just another ignorant stooge they count on to vote for them while they do nothing for you.

I think you should have worded this way


Minorities who have no education do not have access to information that will help them understand how voting for Democrats hurt their own interest. this is the violence perpetrated on a population by denying them their chances of rising in life. But then if they become educated they will not be any more the reliable voting block, voting against the party that uses them.
