INDIANAPOLIS — Robert James stood outside the Carrier plant just before the president-elect addressed workers at the refrigeration and heating assembly factory.

James would never dream of voting Republican: “For all of my life the Democrats have been the party of the working guy, had my back. But if I am being really honest, and this is tough to admit, but I can’t remember the last time they did anything to improve the dignity and value of my job” — a point that didn’t really crystallize for him until it became personal: until his job was saved. By a Republican.

James, wearing a United Steelworkers jacket on a brisk afternoon, was in no way saying he’s found political religion in the Republicans. But the 57-year-old, African-American longtime Carrier employee did share the sentiment of many of his co-workers, Democrats who didn’t vote for Trump but felt their party was disconnected from their lives.

What is astounding, post-election, is the total lack of contrition Democrats have displayed for ignoring the workingman and -woman bloc that has been the party’s horn of plenty. The only regret they display is that they lost the election, not the voters.

“The Democratic Party has become a coastal elitist club and if there is any decision or discussion made to broaden that within the ranks, it is squashed,” said Dane Strother, a legendary Washington, DC-based Democratic strategist.

The Democrats are elitists and have taken the working man for granted just like they take blacks for granted.

I will have to add the Republicans have done the same thing with their base. The statement should read POLITICIANS are...

I am hopping the difference here is that DT is not a politician in the true sense of the word. He is a politician to get where he is in the business world, but not an elected politician until last month.

Politicians lie through their teeth to get in office and stay in office lets hope he is different. He has spoken loudly to this point!

Avoid the 'default' settings in life, Fat Dumb and Poor!!!
