So Why Does a Certain Portion of the Electorate Stand behind Elected
Officials Who Advocate Economic Policies that seem to Favor the
Wealthy, and Ignore the needs of the Very Voters who Continue to Re-elect
Them to Office?
Could it be One, or More, OF THE FOLLOWING REASONS; WHERE
FAULTY LOGIC, INCOMPLETE ANALYSIS, HYPOCRISY, AND RACIAL
STEREOTYPES ARE OFTEN THE FOUNDATIONS THAT UNDERLINE
THE CAMPAIGNS OF PARTICULAR POLITICIANS.
- SOME ARE CONVINCED That Those who have "MADE IT", Deserve to be Left Alone.
THE REASON: THEIR "WEALTH", AUTOMATICALLY MAKES THEM
"MONEY EXPERTS", SO THEY MUST KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
- THEY ARE ENCOURAGED TO FOCUS ON CANDIDATES WHO DELIBERATELY Concentrate on Campaign Issues that have little to do with Addressing the Economic Concerns of the Average American, and FOCUS INSTEAD ON SOCIAL ISSUES SUCH AS SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, GUN CONTROL, AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE, REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS, etc.
- BEING CONVINCED TO SUPPORT CANDIDATES WHO CRITICIZE FUNDING FOR PROGRAMS CREATED AND ADMINISTERED FOR LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS, DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A MINIMAL STANDARD OF LIVING FOR EVERY AMERICAN.
However, at the same time, THESE CANDIDATES SUPPORT MONETARY BAILOUTS FOR INDIVIDUALS AND CORPORATIONS THAT RESCUE FAULTY, DUBIOUS, OR EVEN ILLEGAL FINANCIAL DEALINGS, WHICH INCLUDES INVESTMENTS AND OTHER RISKY VENTURES.
IT'S A BIZARRE SITUATION...THAT SEEMS TO MAKE LITTLE SENSE...
