True ElitesRepublicans Are Anti People

It has puzzled me for a long time why so many folks in this country despise policies that are clearly in their best interests, and vehemently support ones that are counter to their best interests. For example, I used to work in an industrial manufacturing plant where most of the employees were hourly union workers. They were nearly all doggedly anti-company and pro-union, and yet they were nearly all doggedly anti-Democrat and pro-Republican. Last I checked, Democrats are pro-labor, while Republicans are anti, in a big way.

That is just one of numerous examples from just my own personal experience. Examples of this phenomenon outside of my own small world are incredibly common. So, the question remains: why do so many of us adamantly support governmental policies that favor the Wealthy Elite and destruction of the only world we have in lieu of policies that improve our own and our children’s quality of life?

We Are All Snobs

It seems the answer is a combination of shrewd marketing by the Wealthy Elite and our own easily manipulated pride. We cut off our noses to spite our faces because of perceived Liberal elitism and condescension, a perception that the true elites in this country exploit and exacerbate to their their own great advantage — at the expense of all the rest of us. Unfortunately, there is truth to the indictment that educated liberals are snobs. I’m guilty of snobbery myself, though I’m not truly a liberal or a conservative, and I am educated.

However, realistically, we are ALL snobs. We all think our own views are the only right ones, that people who disagree are stupid and/or misguided, that members of other socioeconomic groups don’t get the β€œreal world,” and so on. The difference is that moneyed special interests, the Wealthy Elite, have a long-standing and evidently never-ending marketing blitz campaign going on against liberals and the educated, and it works. Marketing just works, and we the TV-addicted People of America allow our points of view, spending habits, and voting habits to be dictated by a small cadre of wealthy individuals and corporations, the Wealthy Elite, who successfully program us to service them and their best interests at the expense of ourselves and our own best interests.

But We Have A Lot In Common

So, as an educated snob, I say this to any uneducated snobs who may be reading: we have far more in common with each other than either of us do with the true elite in this country – the multimillionaires (like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin), the billionaires, and the Mega Corporations. The Wealthy Elite. Let’s put our respective prides aside and admit that what’s good for you is good for me, and vice versa. Let’s admit that we have all been willing dupes of the Wealthy Elite and begin to choose what is in our own best interests instead of what is in theirs. Let’s remember that we can choose to put our pride aside and make mature purchasing and voting decisions based on what’s good for ourselves instead of ones the true elite in this country, the vastly wealthy, tell us to make.

    Looking for a SWM, 28-40, who adores thick black women and doesn’t have plans Friday or Saturday night. I could just go out with friends but I miss that feeling that comes with being out with an interesting, attractive guy. Must be educated, employed, and have a great sense of humor. Bonus points if you look like Matt Damon, have a solid muscular build, or have an accent. Tell me something about yourself and let’s see if we hit it off.
