The Horror that People don’t Vote for their own Self Interest

A very liberal woman I know ranted on facebook how America is full of misogynists, racists and pussy grabbing fascists. She also said “I can’t believe how many people don’t vote for their own self interest”.

That says its all right there. That captures the difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals and especially liberal women truly believe you are suppose to put yourself above country. Its come a long way from the liberalism of “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”

Keeping up with her rants has been entertaining. So far all I can see from the Hillary crowd is a bunch of cussing rants. This same woman is also boasting about how she knows what she is talking about because she is “law school educated”. LOL. I know she did not graduate, but just took a few classes so therefore she thinks she is better than everyone else because she is mildly law school educated. This is exactly the sort of elitism this nation has rebelled against.

Don’t think though that conservatives are any better with their elitism. Instead of boasts about their education its more along the lines of listen to me because “I go to church, I read the bible.”

At the end of this rant she accuses the woman she is arguing with as being “fucking ignorant” and that she doesn’t “give a shit to care about people too selfish to care about anyone else but themselves”. BUT WAIT, I thought we are suppose to vote for our own self interest? Talk about being selfish.

  1. The KKK is mostly FBI informants. That’s been the case for a long time now. David Duke may still be one, it wouldn’t be the first time. But defining Trump by the alt-right is the same as defining Clinton by the SJWs. They’re the shock troops, not the main army in either case.

  2. @TPC – I didn’t vote for Trump and I certainly don’t like him. His message didn’t resonate with me, but then I’m pretty sure that I was not his intended audience. Looking forward to your post. I tried to convince some people that this was not all about racism, but that is a hard sell when people have been reading along with the alt-right and are now watching the KKK plan victory marches. A lot of the black Hilary supporters have all suddenly moved right on gun ownership however, so there’s that.

    I hope that you feel better soon.


    There’s a lot of playing to the lowest common denominator in politics, and each party has its own contingent of economic and civics illiterates. It’s just that people don’t notice the ones on “their” side.

    Yep. If you agree with them, they don’t care why.

  3. I am too sick to make the post right now, but another barrier that is hard to cross politically is not understanding why Democrat views on voting are completely incompatible with Republican views on voting, and that the latter is not due to racism at all.

  4. It’s always so fun to see how ignorant about half of the college set has proven themselves to be. You don’t have to like Trump, but there is a pretty massive wall of delusion built up about him, consisting of this

    And a hilarious belief that the media is relatively unbiased. The next few years will be interesting watching the spin those types come up with to explain away what will almost certainly be better governance at the top than we’ve had the last 16 years, and particularly the last four.

    “They are talking about the need to improve civics education for people who won’t go past high school so that they will know an empty campaign promise when they hear one. While I agree that a lot of people don’t seem to understand how the government works it still seemed like a very rude conversation to have in public where at least some of the people viewing are Trump supporters.”

    Plus, it’s obvious that a lot of the other sides’ promises are a pitch to the barely numerate.

  6. @ Stone – No, these are friends from college and grad school. People with a lot of formal education and high incomes. They believe that Trump supporters are literally uneducated and that is why they supported “Don the Con.” They are talking about the need to improve civics education for people who won’t go past high school so that they will know an empty campaign promise when they hear one. While I agree that a lot of people don’t seem to understand how the government works it still seemed like a very rude conversation to have in public where at least some of the people viewing are Trump supporters.

    I am tired of hearing people say “agree with me or there is something wrong with you.”

  7. Aw the “uneducated” line again. Whether you are educated or not means do you agree or not. Its not if you have a degree(s).Kinda like how being godly really means whether you agree or not.

  8. The Hilary supporters on my facebook page don’t seem all that surprised or upset that she lost. They say that the uneducated knuckledraggers who voted for Trump will go back to drinking and drugging themselves to death when they realize that he can’t give them even half of what he promised and that their jobs aren’t coming back. Also a lot of eye rolling and head shaking at the people protesting.

  9. LOL.

    My husband and I were watching the news coverage of the election’s aftermath, and the segment featured a bunch of ranting pro-Hillary feminist women who were “horrified.” Just after I told him how I can’t stand those kinds of feminist women, a guy was featured saying something similar about pro-Hillary voters and we both laughed.
