Color me not surprised that the electorate is nowhere near as conservative as the media portrays it to be. A Majority want weed legalized. A majority are pro women’s rights to choose. A majority by far if the question is universal, single payer health care are for it. A majority are against the severe conservative nature of the
Republican congress and that majority is large. A majority are for the right to allow LGBT’s to marry, to serve in the military and to be part of the great egalitarian experiment called the United States of America. A majority don’t want to secede if they don’t get their way. A majority blame Republicans for the constant hostage taking of the economy and the never ending petty gridlock that is only meant to destabilize the nation for Republicans to win power. A majority are for, Medicare, Medicaid, raising the basic wage, worker rights, raising the tax levels of the most wealthy and see that raise as payback for the devastation they did to the world economy in the lead up to the great recession in 2008, when they bailed them out only for them to spread around taxpayer money in huge bonuses and then refuse to lend from that money to struggling cash strapped small business. A majority no longer believe the republicans are or ever where fiscally conservative and a majority believe that they are not represented by the current incarnation of the Republican Party. A majority also believe that Republicans started a $4 trillion dollar war for nothing more than no bid contracts and don’t believe the WMD lie. They also by a large amount blame the Bush administration for the mess that Obama found when he won in 2008 and the Republican Party for years of obstructionism, A large majority supported the Obama jobs bill, know that the division of the nation is encapsulated in the us versus them 47% comment that emerged last year and a majority of the electorate in all 3 branches voted for democrats. Further, a majority are for the dream act, infrastructure spending. Environmental and Wall Street regulations and they are all healthy majorities. America is a saner center left country than the corporate media has been selling the nation as. America in its evolved constitutional state has undergone the wide arc that is leading to equality, understanding and is moving away from intolerance regression, suppression of rights and more freedom and no amount of propaganda, lies and fear tactics will dissuade people from standing up for each other instead of buckling under for the very greedy, self centered that lay at the core of the Republican philosophy.
