Why working-class Americans vote against their own best interests

A two-minute excerpt from a General Motors video is a classic example of how easy it is to con American citizens into voting for the wrong politicians. By totally misrepresenting how working-class living standards improved, conservatives have convinced workers that government is the enemy, and they should rely on corporate good will to treat them fairly.

    Very good video, thanks for doing your part in trying to educate the 21st. century American.

  2. Robert Di Giovanni says:

    I'm a working class American living from paycheck to paycheck and I don't vote anymore because I lost total faith in the system. I used to be an Independent. Everyday it's getting harder and harder to live, to pay the bills, afford food, rent, etc. I know that I'm not alone. I feel that no one's going to do anything.

    "The salient fact of American politics is that there are fifty to seventy million voters each of who will volunteer to live, with his family, in a cardboard box under an overpass, and cook sparrows on an old curtain rod, if someone would only guarantee that the black, gay, Hispanic, liberal, whatever, in the next box over doesn't even have a curtain rod, or a sparrow to put on it." — Davis X. Machina
