LTE: Middle Class vs. Republicans

In a Wednesday 'Letter to the Editor' (LTE) in the SI Advance, a writer comments on a previous LTE covered here about why working class voters support the Republican party on Staten Island;

So many fellow Staten Islanders seemed so worried about the threat of same-sex marriage and fell right into the hands of the moral propaganda the last presidential election, and seemed to vote not for Bush as much as against Kerry. They were hell-bent on keeping gays apart and not focusing on the real issues, i.e., this horrible war, failed health care, loss of jobs, pandering to big business like the oil and pharmaceutical industries, grave environmental issues, etc., all products of this wretched George Bush Republican administration.

You can read the whole piece here. However I will ruin it for you by giving you the closing line;

Wake up, America! The next time you see some pro-Republican "All-American jerk" declaring his or her patriotism and in favor of this war and shouting fight, fight, fight, tell them to get out of their comfortable home and big car and go there personally and fight for the liberty of Iraq and see how fast they change their tune and think it is time to end the insanity!
