Fixed Income Voters Matter Too!

Fixed Income voters, primarily retirees who are living solely on a fixed income are voters who are probably hurting the most from rising Gas prices, as well as grocery prices as well.  The rising cost of housing, food and other necessities are huge drivers of inflation and they fall especially hard on lower-income voters, like those who are living on fixed incomes as I mentioned before. So far no one has offered any proposals, Democrat nor Republican to address the hardships fixed income voter are facing right now. Food and gasoline as well as housing are a huge share of total spending for fixed income and low income voters than for higher-income households. Instead of congress focusing on passing abortion rights legislation that would codify ROE v WADE, they should be focusing on bread and butter issues that majority of voters give a damn about!

Same 'ol, Same 'ol.....Rural Voters and their disdain for the Democrat Party

R ural voters here in Georgia and across the country are voting their economic interests and have abandoned Democrats because they feel the party overlooks, ignores, and disrespects them.  R ural voters don’t think that Democrats understand the economic realities of rural and small town life and have not focused attention on them. Instead, rural voters see leading Democrats like Stacey Abrams and Jon Ossoff as coming from and supporting urban concerns.  Rural folk also believe that Democrats ignore rural needs and that rural areas do not get their fair share of resources. For example, many rural areas like Eastman, Montezuma, Talbot ton, Statenville, Homerville, Folkston,  have faced recession-like conditions for decades due to a decline in manufacturing and small farms struggling to compete with corporate farms. Yet, national Democrats focus on the problems of minorities and rarely talk about the problems of rural voters.  This fact is why identity politics backfires on Democrats. Und
