Most of the 10 Poorest States are Repblican. What does it say about the Republicans?

It says that the Republican Big Business corporations are screwing the people
blind, and these poor suckers don't even know it. They probably believe the
Republican lies that the Democrats are screwing them.

1. Yes, it proves that, but WORSE,

it proves that professional repugs are doing it deliberately and don't care OR really are too stupid to recognize it.

10. Too many of professional Repugs are psychopaths. And psychopaths can't help lying, stealing,

deceiving .... all for their own profit. These are their character traits. And they
can't help but follow their character traits. Their defective consciences don't
bother them if other people have to die so that they can make a profit.

This is a mental illness. They can't actually be blamed for being sick. But they do
a lot of harm to society in general. Even though we shouldn't be blaming them for
being sick, we can try to prevent them from doing more harm and protect ourselves
and future generations by preventing them from getting into positions of power --
both in government and in private industry. This is the hard part.

13. VERY hard part,

as they have help of those whom their 'policies' appear to assist, who provide them with funds and media access and apparent legitimacy.

4. Greedy psychopathic Big Business hasn't changed in 163 years, have they? Well,

that's nothing new. Psychopaths haven't changed at all since the beginning of
human history. One of the characteristics of psychopaths is that they can't change.
And they make up roughly 4 percent of the general population. And they are ambitious
about making money by hook and by crook, and also love to have people under their
control.

Where can money and power be found? In business corporations and government.
So that's where large numbers of them can be found. Psychopaths are attracted to
corporations and government like flies are attracted to feces. And they are destroying
our nation for their own personal benefit.

We, the people, must make the situation change. And one way of beginning is by
voting more and more of them out of positions of power -- both in private industry
and in government. We must do this if we wish to survive as a nation!

I meant that those poor people who vote Republican are the suckers. They don't know
what they're doing. They've been brain-washed by the hundred years of Right-Wing
propaganda and lies. It isn't an easy job to re-educate these masses who have voted
Republican all their lives and for many generations.

14. Dramatic difference today is availability of media access,

resulting in proliferation of propaganda to those who might and then do become suckers.

15. Of course news media is available to them! 90% of the media is Republican-OWNED! And

they have the chutzpah to talk about "Democratic-leaning news media.!"

From the sheer volume alone they get many people to believe in their lies. They can afford
to repeat, repeat and repeat their propaganda and lies.

Democrats are doing more now to refute those lies, and it seems more Republicans
are beginning to learn the truth and more of them are leaving the Right-Wingers, who
aren't even Republicans anyway. They've just taken over the Republican Party. Many
old-timer Republicans still think they're voting Republican when their old party no longer
even exists.

6. They're the masses who have been voting Republican for generations simply because

their families have always done so. These are the people who have been brain-washed
by the generations of propaganda and lies of the Right-Wing extremists. They're not
the type to check and find things out for themselves, either. It won't be an easy job
to try and re-educate them with facts and the truth. But we'll have to try. If we don't,
our whole nation loses -- to crooks and gangsters.

12. Brainwashed.

I live in a blue area of a red state and can attest that the vast majority of our media is conservative.

In fact, the only place to get an alternative to conservative media are some of the arts/music magazines in various big cities and/or paying to get Sirius/XM. Most poor people can't afford that and are stuck with the Rush/Beck/Cain shit that spews from "news"/talk in their area.

7. Well, no, actually, if you look at which states those are it says something else.

Most of those states are in the old Confederacy; most of those states have larger black populations, as a percentage of the total population, than most of the rest of the country. You can't discount racism as a factor in Republican support in places like South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi. Most of the poorest people in those states? They're black and they aren't voting Republican. (Or in Montana they're Native American.) The answer is in demographics and racism. (Look at the poverty rates in the South or in Montana compared to the black and Native American population.)

9. Yep. Quite a typical behavior for psychopaths. We're getting more and more of them every election.

Poor old USA!

11. It says to me there is a link between education, socioeconomic status, and political affiliation.
