The College Educated Vs The Non College Educated: The Battle For The Future Of America!

It is clear that the Presidential Election of 2016 is a battle for the future of America, in effect a struggle between the college educated and the non college educated.

Ignorance and being clueless has been a major problem for a long time, but polls indicate the more educated you are, the more likely you will support Hillary Clinton, and the less educated you are, the more likely you will support Donald Trump.

Usually, educated Republicans have voted for their party nominee, but not this time, which is a good sign.

The future must be in the hands of those who know how to analyze, interpret, evaluate information and candidates with some wisdom.

If we allow the uneducated, the ignorant, who support Donald Trump, to govern America in the future, we will be taken back to the 19th century, and ironically, the poorly educated have been suckered into voting Republican for years by people who do not give a damn about them.

Having said the above, it is clear that there are millions of Americans who have not attended college, and in many cases, have not had the opportunity to attend and graduate college, who, nevertheless, are not bigots or narrow minded, so we must recognize that fact.

But racism, nativism, misogyny, homophobia, and xenophobia have been utilized far too often to keep the poor and uneducated voting Republican, and that must be fought against.

    This is not one of your better posts. Don’t generalize Trump yahoos and stir them in with the millions of hard working folks who did not have a chance to attend college.
    Millions have lead lives of quiet desperation without being led down the path of Trump’s so-called “values”.
    I must say that I find today’ s post a little bit on the elitist side.

    Paul, I have read your comment and considered it, and as a result, I have gone ahead and modified what I wrote, and I hope you will find the changed entry reasonable and acceptable.

    I did not intend to be elitist, far from it, and I appreciate your input and respect you greatly.

    Thanks, Paul!

    Thanks, Professor.
    I just felt the little hairs on the back of my neck go up a little.I like to think that we can all discern that we don’t like the broad statements that the right gives about the “welfare state” and, believe me, I’ve seen more college educated people treat non college educated people like gum on the bottom of their shoe, and it rankles; and I know that was not your intent.

    Precisely, Paul, as I have always treated everyone, no matter what their occupation or education, with dignity and respect. Thanks!

    Yes, Paul, it is heartening to see younger people favoring the Democrats.

    I am sorely disappointed at seniors, who in large numbers, are supporting Trump, as I am a senior, and feel no identification with these Trump supporters.

    Yup, that sort of sums up the Trump campaign from day one:
    “Says who”…
