Who are “Reagan Democrats” to whom Hillary also appealed, but who seem also to have little use for Obama and his hard-left San Francisco Liberals?
Reagan democrats are Demos with children. That’s why they don’t vote for people like McGovern, Dukakis, Gore, Kerry and why they won’t vote for Obama.
This is as opposed to the elite, academics and young voters who don’t have children – and who did vote for those America defeated, and who will vote for Obama – who will be defeated.
Leftist students may grow into Reagan democrats or Republicans when they grow up – or not. Either way if they have children the likelihood is that they will care about the future – and vote for intelligent future policies – which don’t include anything in the current Democratic platform of unionized teaching, Luddite energy policies, nationalized health care, etc.
If they don’t mature, becoming childless whining Democrats emulating their Baby Boom parents and grandparents, they’ll vote for those same kinds of losers.
Why don’t Demos not want to stop terror? Terror is about the future and Demos don’t have kids so don’t really care about the future. Same reason they don’t care about unions in education or in trashing the economy with nonsensical and non-scientific climate change policies.
If neither you nor any of your relatives will be around in 40 years to suffer a trillion-dollar loss in GDP due to the climate policies you vote in now, why would you care?
And since you really don’t care as you won’t be here and won’t have kids who will be here, why bother to educate yourself on the real issues rather than just listen to the feel-good party now?
The larger questions are why anyone with kids votes for a party run by childless people (check Blue State demographics – Liberals don’t have children), and why anyone with kids would trust education policy to a party full of people with no future?
