In the past, when someone described the “worker’s party,” they really meant the communist proletarian class: Marxist “workers of the world unite” and such. For capitalists and free-marketers, this carried with it a negative connotation.
But no longer. No longer should the worker’s party be decried as undesirable – for the worker’s party has a new home, and it is in the Republican Party.
It used to be said the left side of the political spectrum was there to look out for the little guy – the common man (and woman) – the vaunted middle class. But no more. Oh sure, the left still lends lip service to this ideal, but they no longer represent this constituent group.
