I wonder how many old White guys say to themselves, gee, let’s look at the facts. Republicans are shills of the rich. They don’t care about me. They never liked the social safety-net that I depend on and will rip it away at the first opportunity, causing me to probably have to die penniless in the street. Oh, wait a minute now, they don’t say very nice things about minorities and foreigners — guess I better vote Republican.
