I think the right wing has done a pretty good job at convincing many Americans to vote against their own self interests. There is a class of uber-wealthy who are trying to figure out how to protect their wealth and amass even more. By tugging on strings like family values and religion, they have working class Americans convinced that they are on their side. It’s pretty incredible and disgusting at the same time. I fear Americans won’t wake up until it’s too late and their piece of the pie has been all but taken from them.
