I voted for Obama both times because he had a populist message that I agreed with. I was laid off from my job and I struggled during the recession. I could not bring myself to vote for Hillary Clinton because she only seemed to be concerned with "identity politics". Most liberals are ultimately interested only in affirmative action. We keep hearing them preach about how everything is rigged against so-and-so so there must be hiring quotas and preferential treatment for certain designated groups. It will never end. Liberalism in America only exists today to keep the affirmative action gravy train on its tracks. I've worked for two different state agencies and I have a lot of friends who work for the federal govt in DC and I can tell you that there is no incentive to do well and succeed in the liberal vision for business and society. It's all about justifying pandering and handouts.
