  • Why the White Working Class Rebelled: Neoliberalism is Killing Them (Literally)
    • The Electoral College is in place to insure that the masses in a particular region (state) is not able to control the national election. A candidate needs to be a national candidate. Thus, in order to win the Electoral College, the candidate needs to be able to win in all regions. The primary reason that Ms. Clinton won the popular vote was because she won in the large population states of CA and NY. IMO. winning those two states alone should not be sufficient to win the election.

    • agree and probably not.

    • Agreed. There is an obvious economic shift taking place that is as disruptive as the industrial revolution. This disruption is based on increased economic productivity due to increased automation (like the industrial revolution was). The challenge in this case is that manual labor will not be able to easily migrate to the "new employment opportunities" due to the increased training and skill requirements.

    • Completely agree. However, I am slightly more optimistic in his presidency. (Disclosure: I did not vote for him)

    • Agree. Recall history when the Irish whites were fighting the Greek & Italian whites because the Irish jobs were being threatened.
