The unemployed justifiably worry about whether they will get a job or if they do not get a job if they will lose unemployment and any public assisted safety net. The under employed worry if they are living a new miserable normal. The still employed worry that they will become unemployed or under employed. Given the structural defect of our new economy they must all worry.
I’ve asked many in the three above mentioned groups since the election if they voted and if they did how they
voted. I found the answers fascinating. Firstly, many did not vote. Of those who did not vote most would have voted Democratic. Of those who voted, most voted Republican. Granted I live in a very conservative area in a fairly conservative state, I was most amazed that those at most risk tended to vote Republican because they thought things needed to change to help their situation or perceived possible bad situation forthcoming.
If I had hair on my head I swear I would be bald from hair pulling as opposed to my daily head shaving ritual. That these people cannot understand that the destruction of our economy was caused by 30 years of Republican led supply side economics is befuddling. Further that they cannot understand that it would take over a decade to correct is tantamount to a toddler seeking instant gratification. Worst of all that many of those most in need would put those with policies whose outcome is surely the continued destruction and pilfering of the middle class and by design will have a negative material effect on them is a sure sign of insanity created by misinformation causing mass indoctrination.
