Obviously this isn't exactly how it goes, but the Republican party definitely has a pattern of "standing up" for one group for the sole purpose of attacking another group. Whether its voters recognize that or not.
Why don't people understand this? It's old news, something I learned in school when a kid. What the hell are schools teaching that they don't have time for Phys Ed etc, but they also don't teach REAL history or read classics or how to think and gain a foundation to succeed in life, either? Is a school day focused solely on liberal, socialist indoctrination? What ARE they doing all day?!
