    I vote in almost every election. If they don't, well, that's on them.

    •  Ah ha! (0+ / 0-)

      You're just the sort of person to whom I've wanted to ask this question: For whom should the poor vote when NO candidate or party represents them?  That's a pretty big chunk of the voting population today. Since Clinton, Democrats have been much worse for the poor (working, or worse off) than Republicans.

        Have you been paying attention to Congress lately?  How about states with Republican governors?  Or cities with Republican mayors?

        Jfwiw - - when the Democrats took over a town in Florida after the Reps had held sway for some years, they rescinded the law that made it illegal to sleep in shop doorways and parks.  And now they're working to actually - you know - REDUCE homelessness.  One way they're approaching it is by working to get vets off the streets.  You know - those vets the Republicans love to wax eloquent about while blocking a vote for a bill that could help them.  THOSE vets.
        And they're working with schools to target homeless children [and their parents.]

        What's Ryan doing?  Oh, right, lying about those children and their parents to score points at CPAC.  I remember now.
        And what is Michigan's [Republican] governor doing?  Targeting primarily black cities and appointing dictators who then remove the duly elected city councils and mayors.
        Yeah, those Republicans do love them some poor people.
