And the Dems get all the ghetto and trailer parks moochers to vote for them by handing out free stuff. They become pawns of the elitist governments controlling their miserable lives which never seem to improve, no matter how much free fish they are given.
"Give a person to fish and feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and feed him for a lifetime"
I don't think what you described is limited to the GOP and people you term "rednecks." I seem to recall Democrat President LBJ stating, "We are not about to send American boys 9 or 10 thousand miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves."
