This chart is worth taking a look at, not that it totally determines voting.

Most industries and sectors vote Republican. There are a lot of Democrats who stay at home and don't have to work due to large incomes or they're on welfare and food stamps. Working leads to conservatism. I've worked in grocery, retail, sales, fast food, construction, and office buildings. I have yet to find a liberal base of employees at any job I've ever had.

That is a total lie.

We can debate it all day and because we have different ideologies, we won't ever agree and there's nothing wrong with that.

We'll never agree, that's true. But there's no doubt political views have nothing to do with your work ethic.

No but I think they go hand in hand. If you look deep into political parties, you'll find differences between Democrats and Republicans as far as which phones they're likely to have, which TV shows they watch, what music they listen to, the foods they prefer, and so forth. There was a time when some industries voted Republican and others Democratic, but income would be a larger influence than profession. My main point was the welfare system has become so great that most Democratic voters are receiving something for free from our government. There's an entitlement mentality. In my experience too, I have yet to work in a liberal environment and I've lived in mostly purple areas my whole life. A lot of my coworkers who have been liberal thought that they were singled out, treated unfairly, hated where they worked, thought the world owed them favors, and was always trying to bend rules. I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm looking in to what kinds of people are in different parties. Republicans are far from perfect too. Some tend to have a divisive mentality, not understand how government works, and are uneducated in religion. Everyone has their flaws.
