I think this is an interesting article. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/dec/01/gamergate-alt-right-hate-trump?CMP=fb_gu&utm_content=buffer76b92&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

> IT IS CURRENT YEAR AND PEOPLE STILL CARE ABOUT GAMERGATE

The people who voted for Donald Trump are the quintessence of Middle America: white middle-class people who believe in a particular midcentury ideal of the American Dream, one in which healthy happy nuclear families with a stay-at-home-mom go to church every Sunday. Black people, immigrants, gays, and single parents are not part of this vision; that's why they could so easily disregard ther well-being with their vote. They are racist, but it's the kind of passive racism that allows people to do grievous harm against black communities with their votes while claiming (and earnestly believing) that they are not racist. Abortion isn't an issue for them because good women get married and stay married while good men work hard to support their families. They cant have immigrants TAKING those jobs, that wouldn't be right, and gay people... well, that's alright as long as they keep it behind closed doors, and as long as it's not MY son or daughter because I didn't raise them like that.

It's not a mystery. They are the rosy-cheeked, suburban, middle-class, Christian, white, conservative American Dream. That's what they're fighting for. The ones that don't have it, want it, and they earnestly think that Donald Trump will lead them back into the dream of trickle-down economics by lifting burdens from the wealth creators like Ronald Reagan reborn from the ashes of the 80's.

Hurr durr:



Bear in mind again, this was not a popular election it was an electoral one. That surge of voters, even though it didnt win him the majority of the poor vote, won him the electoral votes of mostly poor rust belt states which ended up deciding the election. These are people who voted for Obama twice but now voted for Trump.

Also, from your own fucking source that you just posted:
Quote
This is not to say that Trump voters are happy about the condition of the economy. Substantial majorities of Republicans in every state so far have said they’re “very worried” about the condition of the U.S. economy, according to exit polls, and these voters have been more likely to vote for Trump. But that anxiety doesn’t necessarily reflect their personal economic circumstances, which for many Trump voters, at least in a relative sense, are reasonably good.

Even his more well off voters were voting very largely on the issue of the economy. Why are you so absolutely dead set on ignoring the economy as a factor in the election?

He seems to want to engage in link-for-link pedantry, whereas we take previously establish links as, well, previously established.

I don't think he really looks at threads other than his own, so he probably missed those conversations. Being completely self-absorbed will do that to a person.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Magic is literally real and was a deciding factor in the 2016 election. I will debate this with anyone.
