In an America controlled by Republicans, the poor and middle class are a low priority. Every since Ronald Reagan, the priority for Republicans have been the rich.
The problem I have with this are the supporters of the Republican Party. Who are these supporters?, poor and middle class southerners mostly. Why do I have a problem with it?, because the supporters have the idea that the Republican Party of today is the same as past times. This is a false assumption.
The party that most represents the poor and middle class of today is the Democratic Party. But the Republican supporters are dense and can't seem to grasp this. It's going to take a Republican congress in 2010 and/or a Republican President in 2012 to finally force them to see the Republican Party for what it is, a scam.
