I’m astonished. When poor voters are heard alone, every state but two (Idaho and Wyoming) becomes blue.
Since many of my readers are Christians, allow me a religious question:
Christian, with whom did you stand?
Listen, my beloved brothers and sisters. Has not God chosen the poor in the world to be rich in faith and to be heirs of the kingdom that he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who oppress you? […] You do well if you really fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – from The Letter of James, chap. 2 (NRSV)
