I don't think he purposefully omitted them.

I don't know

Latin immigrants work pretty hard and they have a lot of kids

Are you saying this is your explanation?
Life isn't fair but if we are to talk about American society, success, and capitalism, let's be more intellectually honest about it.

re: This is why capitalism is unappealing to the majority
OK, we are drifting away from Byron's rationale. I feel an analogy is appropriate.

SSI covers disabilities. Historically the list of disabilities grows. The list will never decrease because that would be mean to the 'less fortunate.' Let's say that one day SSI covers everything from a bad back to ingrown toe nails.

Let's say this equals the 'takers' numbering 60% and the producers numbering 40%.

Byron's point is that it is totally logical for everyone to vote in his/her self interest. And in this case the "takers" are exercising that logical prerogative.

The Dems/socialists realize this and run on agendas that appeal to the majority of voters.

People in the south didn't have a problem with Democrats until the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.

The only reason the conservative movement got as powerful as it has been is resentment over all of that.

That's incredibly self-destructive in its short-sightedness, but it makes sense.

The Dodge 440 had a push button shift left of the steering column. There, now we've both posted something irrelevant to the OP.
The wealth of the Kennedy clan is like getting struck by lightening and has nothing to do with the shifting of the electorate.

The studies I've seen say it's 1st generation only. The kids becomes slackers.

It has to do with why there is an unlevel playing field.

So, conservatives have a problem with all of the Great Society legislation except the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act? Is that what you're telling me

Dems 1950s were not communists.

The conservative movement was started by people like WFB and Goldwater. They were not from the South.
