Hey GOP – The South is Not a Role Model

The Great Recession and Not-So-Great Recovery have been bad news for most Americans, but some people have suffered more than others. We call those people “Southerners.”

Not too surprising that poverty is on the rise as inequality explodes, unions disappear and we get used to the new normal of post-middle class America. But the South is especially hit hard, despite Church membership and gun ownership and abortion restrictions. God must hate these people to be sending them such mixed messages as this.

The real actionable message here is that the South is not a role model and the GOP needs to be smacked across the back of the head if they think that making the rest of the country like the South is a good idea.

 

If they were smart they’d ask for reparations for the War of Northern Aggression. But even they know they did this to themselves.
