Why Poor Republicans Vote Against Their Best Interests…

Why do poor Republicans vote against their best interests, a rhetorical question… when more liberal social policies of government would benefit all of mainstream Americans lives (which includes them) more than Wallstreet whose interest is dependent on perpetuating capitalistic greed through monopolization and deregulation of free enterprise, where the richest 1% hoard 80% of the wealth of the nation…

If we shared the wealth built off the backs of the working poor including blue collar employees (because as we know, the trickle down doesn’t reach past the owners, CEOS and stockholders), by squeezing profits out of those desperate, in competition for unskilled labor feeding the grind with self acceptance by the workforce perpetuating unfair unlivable wages without benefits given to those who create the wealth for the corporations who couldn’t exist without them and they depend on the companies for their livelihoods, so there exists a mutual dependency, but the mega companies have an unequal and unfair power advantage with control over them, trapping those with less power in an nonreciprocal parent child role rather than a mutually interdependent reciprocated relationship, if only they could organize their power into productivity based job contracts with the possibly for advancement based on performance in an integrated work model that includes the workers in the process, giving them some control over their circumstances that are mutually agreeable providing job security; then those people would be lifted out of poverty and in turn swing the pendulum towards a less disparaged workforce, able to self support, contribution financially to the economy, which would create less dependence on social programs and decrease the burden on the dwindling fast middle class who is presently footing the bill for both the impoverished and the rich…

The middle class is paying for indigent welfare programs and funding far more than their fair share of the national fiscal budget annually due to unfair taxation relative to income than the ultra rich who enjoy lucrative incentives by way of subsidies paid by private and government entities, tax breaks, tax shelters and deregulation of barely legal ways to evade paying taxes, through exploitation of loopholes to “hide” and/or decrease taxable income “Wellfare for the rich” as Bernie Sanders says…

There is a disconnect, a desire to have power over groups less privileged, against whom they feel a perceived threat, fear of competition for jobs and increasing political power by those groups felt to be inferior or “non-American” in their eyes, typically divided along racial, social, ethnic and political lines with feelings of supremacy being at the core their impetus, and although poor white Republicans make up a large majority of recipients of government assistance, their political affiliation is conservative “antigovernment” an oxymoronic ideal for their socioeconomic status…
