Your View: Poor, poor rich

JOPLIN, Mo. — The huge cities of the North are where the Democrats live. The huge suburbs that surround them are where the middle class lives. The poor rural North is where the Republican deer hunters live.

When debt and taxes trickle down so the rich don’t have to pay, the Democrats sweep the suburbs.

Obama got 62 percent of the votes in the electoral college. Enough said about the poor, poor rich.
