Why Do So Many Men In America Vote Republican?

I'm not out to bash men, but I really don't understand this. What's the appeal?

Over time this won't be a problem, OP. Our dilapidating factory where we generate the country's angry white men is underproducing. We have completely dismantled our Ann Romney stepford wives assembly line.

An inability to relate to people who are different or who have had real prejudices against them.

Straight white men think the entire world is even - but it's not. And they resent being told otherwise.

Bernaysian conditioning. The implementation of Hegelian dialectics. A media the venerates the anointed, and demonizes outliers. A banking system based on debt. A political system that rewards the ignorant majority. A system of corporate welfare, and foreign warfare. The raping of the middle (and lower) class by the .01% and making them believe it's for their own good.

"I find myself more amazed than ever at the ability of those in power to lie, misinform and obfuscate the truth, while millions of Americans willfully choose to be ignorant of the truth and yearn to be misled. It’s a match made in heaven. Acknowledging the truth of our society’s descent from a country of hard working, self-reliant, charitable, civic minded citizens into the abyss of entitled, dependent, greedy, materialistic consumers is unacceptable to the slave owners and the slaves. We can’t handle the truth because that would require critical thought, hard choices, sacrifice, and dealing with the reality of an unsustainable economic and societal model. It’s much easier to believe the big lies that allow us to sleep at night. The concept of lying to the masses and using propaganda techniques to manipulate and form public opinion really took hold in the 1920s and have been perfected by the powerful ruling elite that control the reins of finance, government and mass media."

Whose quote is that, OP?

I think you're asking the wrong question.

No, R5, you don't understand the question.

Why fret..They are a dying breed, literally.

"..when Obama won reelection, with the ascendancy of women& minorities, he struck a blow not only against the dominance of white voters but against the dominance of Wayne’s white male values. Obama’s America reads like the obverse of Wayne’s: urban& suburban, educated, communal, compassionate & every bit as feminine as it is masculine.

Team Wogan was running The Election. J.B. Wogan of Politifacts whipped Liberals Into a frenzy.

They think it's macho.

The party also reinforces their innate feelings of male supremacy, and their desire for "hierarchy".

Boys wanna play with the Big Boys.

They are terrified of change which is the true core of being conservative.

Superior Complex.

Because Republicans are tough. Plenty tough.

Many white men are sick of being lectured that they don't care enough about racism, sexism, homophobia, and AIDS. For my boss voting GOP was a protest vote against a world that he felt had become too feminized, whiney and PC.

Believe rightly or wrongly that the GOP is stronger on national security, although precious few sign up for the military.

Naively identify with/aspire to join the ranks of the wealthy.

In the past Republicans had each others' backs and were a united front.

Not men, OP. White men. Particularly older, straight white men.


Because they see the days when white men ruled the universe coming to an end.

I don't mean all white men. Or all straight white men. Or all older straight white men. I mean older straight white men as a group.

Because they think Democrats are total weaklings. They have a point.

Of course if you have to choose between a partially principled weakling and a lying, sellout neanderthal, that's not much choice. Guess some guys can't get past the weakness thing.

What r2 said. Straight white men tend to get angry and pouty when it is rightfully pointed out that as a group, they have an advantage over everyone else. They resent that others (the "feminized, whiny, PC") have caught on and want them to face reality. I know that straight men are worshipped here and criticism of them is frowned upon, but as a group, they don't really care about others.

All of you evidently believe that people who don't think like you do are not only wrong but also flawed in some way.

Think about that for a moment.
