Response to geek tragedy (Reply #15)

22. Ok, there are horrible people in some parts of the country.

 

But there are also people who simply made bad electoral choices out of a sense of despair.

What I'm saying is, we need to offer such people a positive alternative to that...a way they can work from below, in coalition with everyone else being dumped on, for the kind of change that would make a real difference in their lives.

If we just write everyone in the Red States off, if we simply equate "working class" with "bigoted morons", we just end up setting up more backlash politics if we ever DO win.
