66 million votes. Lost electoral votes in 3 states by well under 100,000 votes. Take a guess where over 100,000 votes in those states went. Certainly their right. But know the consequences. Still I do not blame Greens. They really were a pinprick, as was putin. Clinton ran a bad campaign. I just think too many "progressives" are loving the Trump debacle and Clinton's defeat. Bernie always was a better man than the Bernie bros.
The Democratic Party has the working class. People say working class here when they mean White.
Working class people are people who have to work for a living.
I.e.,... almost everyone, excluding those who live off stocks, rent, inheritance, etc.
Also known as the 99%.
Well that'll only work when more working class people accept that they are, in fact, working class. Our own culture is to blame for making that term a mark of shame. Apparently the working class doesn't like to admit they're "working class" so they had to redefine the term using an arbitrary numeric divider.
Those of us who support ourselves with a paycheck from an employer are working class.
Yes, the 99% who many people look down upon.
Me too. Yes, singing and protesting( although I was there) when it was the "in" thing while they rejected even union workers, and looked down on actual soldiers who go off to war.
Of course- what's wrong with working???? Otherwise you are in the investor class. Who invented such a silly term for classes? Sounds like it's more of an elite term- ( Hey have you seen my house in the Hamptons) kind of thing. So......these investor classes make up a term for the people doing the repairs on the house to make themselves feel better.
Proud to be working class. Also, how about "blue collar worker" ? That is so silly and infantile. Sometimes I think politicians only talk about the middle class because the so called middle class might be making hundreds of thousands or more per year, and they think they can get more donations. Think about this one for survival. Can someone survive on a politician or can someone survive on food that a farmer grows?
Repeal Taft Hartley.
What???? Now, you sound racist beyond belief. People who are working class are those making a paycheck. Otherwise people are investors, etc.
I doubt that anyone who is sane is loving the Trump debacle unless you have nothing to do but debate while sipping your cocktail
Many of these people just whine on the internet. I have been to meetings, and write or call congress. I have attended climate change meetings as well and take action ( including cutting way down on power) . I hope I can do more. Just whining on the internet to "debate" does not cut it.
I see very unflattering articles about boomers all of the time: like we're spoiled, entitled, threw money away and didn't save, and don't deserve anything. This is in contrast to the greatest generation and gen x. I guess people "forgot" that many boomers are retired or have been working for decades, some support kids and grandkids, and how about the draft that sent many men ( and women) to VietNam? I did not criticize my greatest generation parents.
The working class- that's a large majority of people.Many boomers and even older people are working.
If you're working- then I'd hate to break it to you unless you are wealthy- you are working class. Oh, the horror!
That's right- wake the F up!
Who IS the working class to you? Sounds like you like the label. Meanwhile while you check the DOW and live off of your investments, others are in the working class- ie they (we) work for a living.
The East Coasters elites who live in NYC, Boston, etc. might have different needs, values, and might never have even associated with someone whom they call "working class." The working class to these people ( the elites) are the invisibles.
Who ARE the working class to you? Unless you are making millions of dollars living on investments, or have a nice pension and are done with work, if you are working then you are working class. Oh, the horrors!
Who ARE the working class to you? Oh, excuse me you're sipping your cocktails while watching the DOW.
