3. It's really disgusting how some people can excuse racism

Ever since bigots got rightly kicked out of the Democratic Party and Nixon welcomed them into the Republican Party with open arms, far too many white people have gotten comfortable with that unholy alliance and insisted that they were only in it for the tax cut or the deregulation or whatever, and not my problem if winning requires throwing red meat to the bigots.

You vote for the whole package, and you endorse the whole package.

At some point, they should realize there's something seriously wrong with a party that can only attract, what 3% of all black people.

But hey. Tax cut. So, not a racist. Well, racist for hire, anyway.

5. Right, the republican economic policies are fruit of the poisonous tree...

... of racist and bigoted republican social policies and electoral strategies.

8. The overt bigots certainly got the media's attention, but there are still plenty

Of people, certainly around here in New England, who will insist they're not racist and only vote republican for the tax cuts.

9. at the very least they are ok with racism. and very few people benefit from republican tax policy

MOST people do not. not even the average person who is financially comfortable and lives well.

10. Exactly. Most can't be bothered to do the math.

And if you do the math for them, they just insist democrats will raise their taxes to the moon.

7. This could be anywhere

How much did we hear that the black voter turnout made a huge difference in the midterm elections?

Yes, very refreshing. And spot on!
