3. Please understand the Republican Mindset. They are the party
of Big Business and the Rich --higher income earners.

They actually look on the working class with disdain.

At least Reagan was honest about. Let the Working
Class pay for all these social programs. They are
the ones who want them.

It is irrational to think they will be concerned about
the working class.

However, they are Machiavellin with it. They throw out
Middle Class as if they are concerned. They call the
the Upper Earners--not the UberRich, Middle Class.

The other night Walker said, I cannot ask these Middle
Class citizens to pay for --increase taxes. Hes was talking
about the rich. By using the term Middle Class he was
misleading the working class intentionally. The Working
Class call themselves Middle Class so they think he is
concerned about their taxes. We do not have old fashioned
True Blue Democrats who would explain these little technicalities
in their campaigns. Therefore a lot of Blue Collar workers
are fooled. Doublespeak is their expertise while they accuse
Liberals of double talk.

Never expect the current Republican Party to do anything for the Middle Class. They have purged the party of Rockefeller or Liberal
Republicans. Their world view is entirely different than
it was years back.
