60. Welcome to DU

This:


Their scam relies upon creating a common enemy based upon the fear that the marks will lose something of great value to them to this common enemy.



I wish liberals/progressives at DU would step back and read that - as well as sheshe's bolded quotes elsewhere in this thread.

I posted a Jimmy Carter quote this past weekend that received many recs - and you are basically saying the same thing he has.

They prey on fear and the concept that "the other" has taken something from them.

What's the difference between my white husband and the average white male Republican? He looks at wealthier white men as either "marks" for his artwork and business or as impediments to his accumulation on wealth. He does not feel that way about any other group.

But then again we live in the tri state area and his business thrived during the downturn. Know why? 50 miles away in Manhattan the rich white guys on Wall Street went shopping. So did the guys in Red Bank, Princeton, the gold coast, Greenwich etc etc.

Those same guys laugh at the under employed guy in a square state just getting by that turns around and votes for someone like Romney.

We on our side must go TOWARDS that. We cannot continue to run away from their tactic of the "other" anymore.
