liberals keep forgetting about the workingclass/middleclass
And if conservatives think that independents are going to vote for the vileness of the way this president has been acting a second time, they are going to be sorely mistaken.

It always cracks me up when conservatives tout how much empty land is red. It's as if they think empty acres have more voting rights than actual citizens. With that kind of thinking, they display lots of empty space between the ears.

see... if liberals keep dismissing other opinions (I do have a right to an opinion, do I not) they will lose more votes....

the people want to be represented, not dismissed... and liberal have turned their backs on the workingclass (the class that BUILT the democrats)

right... because 75 people crammed into a 10000sf(1/4 acre) apartment building are MORE IMPORTANT than 10 people on 20 acres, providing you food...…

thanks for acknowledging how the liberal elites feel they mean more than the serfs that serve them

Do I think those 75 people in the city have just as much of a right to have their voices heard as those 10 people out on those empty acres? Yes, I do.

Why don't you?

What an odd argument.

It really sounds to me as if you would prefer it if the vote of one person counted more than the votes of five or ten or twenty (or more) people.

It has nothing to do with importance and everything to do with equal representation.

Let’s apply this logic to the mid-terms.
Every single local race this year will be decided by a majority of voters choosing one candidate over another.
Is that not valid?

Or should the vote of a single person who lives in a single family house in a particular district count more than the votes of the people who live in the condo complex down the street?

Under your bizarre reasoning, you think that 1 person living on 10 acres has more rights than 1 person living in an apartment.

You belong in about the 14th Century.

Speaking of elites, your own view is that of an aristocratic elite: You believe that people who own more land should have greater power. As I just said above, this would have been a popular view in the 14th Century.

You don't get it: 75 people crammed into an apartment have the SAME rights as 75 people spread out over a square mile.
