Americans love republicans. They are your pastor, your lawyer, your doctor, your baker, and the owners of most of the businesses you buy from. They are rarely the one collecting from welfare or an illegal alien, they are Almost Never a felon in prison or a community organizer. Americans love Republicans. They hate journalists and media pundits and people who hate our wonderful country.
Because the publik skools indoctrinate instead of educate. The Left accuses them of racism. After decades, this tactic it has finally paid off. People actually believe it. Had they been taught to think for themselves and study history they'd see that it was actually the Democrats who are racist.
Because the media is owned and supported by liberal democrats who will distort the truth to get their party elected. And instead of doing research people believe what they hear. I'm a moderate republican or blue dog democrat. Socially progressive and financially conservative. Like most people.
