I'm able to remember when the Democrat party was the "party of the working American." Since white males comprised a majority of the workforce, they felt welcome not being in the party of the "rich"=Republican.

Today the Democrat party is the party of the illegal workers, single mothers, foreigners, gays, trans genders, welfare mothers, minorities. Democrats support higher taxes, higher prices for gasoline, energy. Democrats say all men are sexist, and white men also racist.

What normal working man would feel affinity to a party that insults him, works against him, works to give his job to a foreigner, depress his wages while picking his pocket at the same time?

Democrats use to be for the middle class and bringing the poor up to the middle class. Now they are for the parasites, chronic drainers, and mentally ill degenerates, keeping as many people poor as possible and dependent on government for survival while their leaders get rich.

Politicians from both parties have gotten away with letting down ordinary Americans for decades because millions of Americans are culturally wedded to their tribal political identities of Republican or Democrat, and can’t think outside the box.

Looked at this way, the election of Donald Trump made perfect sense to me. Sixty-three million voters — including African-Americans, Hispanics and Democrats — rejected status quo politics and voted for a strong, rank outsider to shake the establishment from their comfortable perches.

Would President Donald Trump’s supporters have preferred a decent, moral, well-behaved, well-informed populist? Sure, but in dire times, you take the populist who shows up because beggars can’t be choosers, etc.


I agree.

"Remember the person in the article is an Asian woman immigrant who became a US citizen and lives in Tennessee!" Trumps stance on immigration both family based and skilled workers sits poorly with Asians who comprise may of bot categories. Anyway, the United States does not need only computer programmers, fleeing billionaires, and rocket scientists (many of who post WWII were indeed deplorables- ex-Nazis), it also needs auto mechanics and manicurists. His stance on trade concerns many Asians about the effect on their home country and family back home. The Republicans lose out on many likely adherents.
But make no mistake, most are personally conservative with strong work and education ethos. The Democrats lose out here with anti-Asian discriminatory so called affirmative action quotas.

Not so. German scientists worked to support the land they were born in. That does not means they supported any atrocities any more than Soviet scientists supported the gulags. Likewise, black soldiers fighting for the US in WWII were not supporting Jim Crow and the Japanese Americans fighting for the US were not supporting internment camps.
