24. "Every time an Upper-Middle Class Dem talks about...." and this happens all the time, right?

"Every time an Upper-Middle Class Dem talks about how virtuous they are because they bought organic food at Whole Paycheck they drive more working class people into the hands of the GOP."

Yes, some days its impoosible o even get through town becuse of the lines of loud latte sipping and arrugula munching yuppies boasting about their virtue ipdue to their choice of grocery store.

Actually, i think you point up an interesting problem with all sorts of sectors of our electorate, and that is the tendency of people to ril against and argue with the syereotypical straw figures they have in their heads ("yuppies boasting about whole foods") than actual reality.

I agree in one point, gun control at a fedreal level is a loser. But so is continued pot prohibition. So is restricting choice.
.

Rather than trying to pickand choose which demographic group to piss off at the expense of which other one, far more sensible is to articulate a cogent agnda combining ECONOMIC PROGRESSIVISM with PERSONAL FREEDOM.

Its not complicated.
