Almost all of them consider themselves to be good working people but they have gotten nowhere in life or their status in life is threatened with imminent loss because the 1%ers have used lies and fearmongering to shift blame away from themselves to a host of people on the left. For MAGA, it’s easier to process blame among people they see every day rather than the real perpetrators squirreled away in their gated estates and penthouse suites, never to be seen by the common folk.
