Why, for instance, do poor Republicans support a party that props up multinational corporations, which stifle the working class? Why are pro-lifers so adamant about preserving all forms of life and yet support the death penalty and harsher prison sentences? Perhaps most pertinent: why has the Democratic Party failed to incite voters despite all of the egregious failings and malfeasance of the Right?
This is a vital book that goes straight to the center of that frustrating, nebulous (perhaps oxymoronic?) thing called American consciousness.
