  •  There are no "poor Republicans"? (0+ / 0-)
    But speaking of the poor, they'll unfortunately always be on the outs with Republicans. Because while Republicans may end up with gay family members or friends, or while they or someone they love could suffer catastrophic illness, none of them will suddenly pop out a poor son. And as for poor people around them, those are called "the help."
    If that were so, then slightly less than 50% of the people who voted in the last election were Rich Republicans?  Better check your math kos.  They can't all be rich dicks.

      Poor Republicans think their up-line will make them rich. They will give everything to their up-line, nothing will make them stop.

        different ways.  In many rural areas, people still believe that the old Horatio Alger story can come true for them.  It only takes one or two examples that you know personally to think that can happen to you, too.  Nobody wants to believe that the lottery like odds apply to them.
