In response to WhatDoYouWantNow's comment:
I read what you posted. I called it swill. I showed you why it was swill.
All the article puts forth is
1. The fact some groups tend to vote democrat.
2. Bad raw statistics about those groups.
3. The fact that democrat policies exist that are aimed to help those groups.
That proves that Democrat policies did not single-handledly fix everything for those groups.
It does not prove that Democrat policies did not make things better for those groups.
It does not prove that Democrat policies made things worse for those groups.
Why are you even posting? It is clear that any disagreement with the rant you posted will be met with "you're a stupid liberal I'm right because shut up you're liberal."
Maybe that flies amongst like-minded conservatives but if you want to win a debate you have to actually convince the people who disagree.
We`ll try this again for the impaired (you and airborne the angry freak). A poster, a Lib, that you always agree with stated very clearly that it was confusing to them why people (she meant Republicans) vote for people that hurt them time after time. It was a DIRECT shot at anyone that votes Republican. You can go back to the 1st page and read it for yourself. She used NO facts, NO data, NO articles for consideration, nothing. As we all know, you and angry freak would have ZERO objection to this because the post is an ideology you agree with.
I responded to that post with research done by reliable sources showing 5 specific groups that consistently vote for Democrats and consistently their lives get WORSE. Cause and Effect. There are pages of data proving this about Blacks, Hispanics, youth, poor, and women. It`s in the actual post that YOU SAID YOU DIDN`t and WOULDN`t READ!
I always kid about your extremely weak skill set but this is over the top even for you.
As the "she" you must be referring to who posted on page one of this thread, that post was responding to a query by UserName99 and directly on point.
The author of the book I cited, Thomas Frank, you posted you were familiar with his works.
Are you also aware of his political transformation? For the record in short...
Frank started his political journey as a College Republican, but has come to be highly critical of conservatism, especially the presidency of George W. Bush. Frank summarized the thesis of his book The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule as "Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad." 
Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who belive government is bad. Which party does that most resemble?
That post was perfectly appropriate and on the money. As the saying goes, you cannot see the forest for the trees. That was the big picture.
Frank started out as a conservative Republican. The more he studied, the more he changed his mind on which party was better for his country.
And btw, please tell me it is not so. In an earlier post you mentioned a meeting between ACC and Pink at a 99 restaurant. (Apparently it did not take place, thank goodness.) But, was such a silly thing actually proposed? After all we are all adults commenting on a political forum...not guys who get drunk at a bar and call each other outside to settle their differences. Really. They are both too intelligent and educated for that kind of stuff. I hope you were just joking. In the long run, nobody here wishes anyone ill.
