"But don't forget that most men without property would rather protect the possibility of becoming rich, than face the reality of being poor." (1776).
That quote is the clearest example of what I am trying to bring to the surface. The Middle Class is disasppearing as a result of voting against your own best interests. As I have said over and over you can't vote for where you hope to be you must vote where you are or it will become impossible to get where you want to go.
