two types of fear ahead of next week's midterm elections

"

  • The upstairs-downstairs split within the Republican coalition requires more than hype about imagined threats of "invasion" from a bedraggled immigrant caravan. GOP strategy involves two distinctly different kinds of fear.
  • For the party's base of conservative white voters – especially older, less-educated ones in small towns and rural areas – it's fear for their personal safety."

 

 

So now we're older and less educated.  Good to know, now I can act the part.

In other words real people who don't have phony college degrees and work for a living. Fly over country.

Well, it can be said to be a deplorable situation if one isn’t edge-u-muh-cated, so I reckon it is!  I think I shall go back to both the colleges I attended and demand my money back.  They ripped me off, taking my money and failing to educate me!

And to think of all the time I wasted, graduating #1 in all those military classes...  That was free, however, so I cannot get back my wasted time.

Gosh! Where do I fit?? I'm white - okay, check.  I live in a rural area, okay check.....  I have a 2 year degree so I'm neither "less educated" nor am I "highly educated"...I guess that makes me "medium educated".  I'm not afraid for "my personal safety" and I'm not afraid of "losing land" or whatever the author was trying to convey as the "rich white man's fear"....  Am I old?  I don't know, is 40 old?

 

Middle age Female, with a middle degree education,  and a middle class income, not afraid of anything.....I feel left out....  I guess I'm supposed to be a Democrat (couldn't be because I'm not afraid of old, white, republican males)???  Apparently I don't have a defined place in America according to all the rhetoric lately.  I feel left out and think I just might have to have a tantrum because I'm entitled to be grossly grouped into some poorly defined subculture of America darn it!  I mean, if the media is so insistent on telling me how to think, shouldn't they give me an assigned group to mind meld with????

 

I think the only thing I'm concerned about (though I wouldn't say afraid of) is the Democratic party's outright war on the Constitution, and I didn't need anyone to tell me to be afraid of that - I've  witnessed it plenty in their own actions over the last few years.
