My brother voted for Trump. He owns his own business. He is a mechanic, he opened up his own shop in August 2009. He works hard, at least 65 hours a week. He is an Iraq War veteran. He owns his home. He owns several rental properties. He has a wonderful wife and a 3.5 year old daughter. He works hard to provide for them and to prepare for their future. He is a success. He has no college education, for that reason elites would think that he is a failure.
My father voted for Trump. He is a widower. He is retired, he worked for 25 years in a state penitentiary. He has three good kids (if I can brag). He also has cerebral palsy, it affects the way he walks — he has a limp, yet refuses to use a cane or a wheelchair because he doesn’t want people to see him as disabled. He refused to have a handicapped parking tag for years, only got one when he turned 55. He has worked hard his whole life. He goes to church every week. He is a success. He has no college education, again elites would think that he is a failure.
