GOP Party of the Rich? Check out this Top 10 List! 

Albert N. MillironCongress, Politics

 Who Really Represents the Rich in Congress?

We have heard it for decades, Republicans are for the rich and big business and Democrats are for the poor and labor unions.  But within Census Bureau data the truth of who really represents the rich in congress is revealed.

Limousine Liberals, as they are called, represent 8 of 10 richest congressional districts in congress.  How could this be?  What is the reason that Republicans don’t represent these uber-rich districts?  I mean, they are the party of the rich, right?

Funny, Politifact once fact checked a statement by ‘Occupy Democrats’ that said that 9 out of 10 poorest states are represented by Republicans.  They ruled this as ‘mostly true’   The group was using this data to suggest that Republican policies aren’t helping the poor.  But why would poor people vote for them?

Maybe all of that ‘Democrats are for the poor‘ comes down to nothing more than a convincing public relations campaign to convince the poor voting block that the Democrats care more about them.  And Democrats know what better for the poor and have moved the poor out of poverty.  A little Food for Thought.

The Truth will set you Free.

Now, did you take a good look at the list?  These are not moderate Democrats here, these are some of the far-left-wing of the Democratic party.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

What is the point?

The Republicans are victims of their own political shortcomings?

Not enough political skill to get their story into the media?

I believe the answer lies primarily with the poor quality of contemporary center-right voices (establishment and conservative both). Cannot convince, cannot persuade, cannot convert voters.

Just whine and claim victimhood.
