I love my country, but what if all the rich people in the United States, suddenly lost everything. Now I don’t want this to happen, but if it did, would they still vote Republican? I don’t think so.
And what if every poor person here or those near the poverty level, suddenly became wealthy overnight? Would they still vote Democratic? I think they would, because they would want to help people.
And therein lays the problem. We vote according to where we are on the economic scale. Politics has become cultural. Our priorities have shifted, and we vote from our wallets, instead of with our hearts and minds.
What we really need……is to vote with a sense of compassion.
