    There has been a lot of words dedicated to this topic both here and in the newspapers and on news sites. My question is why does it matter? Back in 1994 when the House Dems got decimated and the GOP took over, WH Advisor George Stephanopoulos likened it to white males throwing a temper tantrum.

    So why is it a problem for white males to vote a certain way when they think it is in their best interests to do so, but it is perfectly fine for African-Americans and Hispanics to block vote for what they believe are in their best interests? The only difference between the two groups is that one votes GOP.

    The angry white male is a chimera, a phantasmagoria invented by the Left to explain away their failure and defeat.

    I'm an angry white male voter. angry I had to vote for Hilary instead of Bernie. angry about our convoluted imprecise and oddly weighted voting system. a system that has forgotten most of the reasons for what those steps should represent and who and what they are meant to serve. angry that two private clubs (Dems and Repubs) have essentially hijacked our government while leaving us to bicker amongst ourselves and against our own best interests (see; PRSI).

    but to your original post, you offer only questions, no positions or answers of your own. if you want our answers then make your case, that it may be challenged as well.

    Everyone seeks to do things in their own self interest, voting is not exclusive of this.

    Just not every zero does.

    I'm a white male and a voter. But my masculinity isn't quite as fragile as conservatives.

    Voting is a civic responsibility, tho it's not really encouraged in the US, we shall stop and ask ourselves why that is?

    Make it a national holiday or make vote-by-mail like they have in Oregon the standard. Then it will happen more.

    Demographics have not been kind to Liberals and Democrats in America: the fact is that as people get older they become more conservative, and so things have been going in this country for decades.

    But they figured out a neat scam: import Third World immigrants to vote for them, and then win elections by whipping up resentment toward white people. They were that close to pulling it off, too. If Trump hadn't won this time, the GOP would never have won another presidential election, what with the rate of mass immigration we were enduring.

    Anyway, the "angry white male voter" was part of that whipping up resentment against white people schtick.

    This forum use to be a place to talk about PRSI and have thought provoking conversation. Today it is a two sided blame fest without any side compromising or giving anything thought provoking. On the other hand, it has become a fun place to poke at the other side, ;). It's so easy because they're so angry!

    You're not very good at math are you? I ask because numerically speaking, that strategy would have little impact on election totals.

    Really? Given the slim margins by which some states went Blue or Red, why wouldn't the scam work?

    No vote by mail please. It's an opening for all sort of frauds.

    Justification and who holds the current power are important.

    Not really an argument, while there is no way to track mailers.
    Vote in person. It's not that difficult for about 99.999% of the population.
