They will tell you that their parents or their grandparents came from some sort of poverty or hardship, but the fact is that none of them have come from hardship. Either they have been given some privilege in life or earned it. Either way, they have no idea what an average American is going through. And by average American, I mean a person living on or near the miniumum wage or on a fixed income like Social Security.
They don't know how much it costs to shop for groceries, what cable television costs, or what their cell phone provider is charging them every month. Put them on the spot and ask them those questions. I'll bet you a week's pay (Mine, not theirs) that they don't know, or will stammer over the answer.
It's the thing that separates candidates from real people. They tell you that they are real people, and they want us to believe that they are real people -- but they are not real people. They are manufactured people created by their parties to sell themselves as being just like us.
They are not like us, and they do not like us.
It is a sad fact, and if you associate yourself with one of them, it just makes you part of the problem.
