Letter to a future Republican strategist regarding white people
Found this very interesting blog article this morning written by someone who is clearly the so-called typical GOP demographic. A real eye opener.
Then he goes to smash it, both he and his wife have a strong science educational background, they know the problems with the healthcare system (the US is 60% more expensive than Switzerland!!!) , trash Republican hypocrisy on the "sanctity" of marriage etc.
Wow the GOP is in more trouble than I thought, assuming many folks think like this guy.

Your businesses act like the facehuggers in Alien, they attach themselves to the host and once that happens it's too late, you can't remove them because they have a stranglehold on the host. They fabricate a need, like drug pushers (first one's free!) and then you're stuck. Remember back when all the antivirus companies went crazy and called out Microsoft (in some cases using full page ads) for not wanting to provide them with the full source code to Vista? Now, the reason why the antivirus software market became so lucrative in the first place is that Microsoft got naive and sloppy with Win98. Enter the facehuggers. Then when MS attacked the core of the problem and built more solid systems (=they repaired damage that existed by accident), the parasites tightened the stranglehold because a fortified Windows with top secret code at the core would eliminate much of the demand for AV software (plus, MS released their own basic AV package).
It's the same with the health industry, the military industry, the car industry, the oil industry... they've convinced Americans (and their easily seduced government) to consume excessively and built up a demand for stuff they don't need. Gargantuan gas guzzling with enough horsepower to pull a tank... (auto & oil industries: High five!)... truckloads of pills (that seemingly don't do any good since most first world citizens consume half and still outlive Americans)... supersized sodas and supersized meals with enough calories for two NY marathons... and if any attempt was made to pop the bubble and radically reduce the excess spending on stuff like defense and healthcare, it would have a massively negative impact on the GDP. Can't do that. All hail the mighty face hugger.
Unfortunately the EU is headed down that path... big federal governments suck.

I think a lot of younger people do think like this guy. Science is real, religion is for Sundays and gays aren't going a way so what's the fuss. People want jobs, not whackjobs in office.
