Self-Interest - A Broader View

Jesse over at Pandagon has a post asking about why it seem the Republicans are always trying to disnfranchise while the Dems are doing the opposite.

It always boils down to the fundamental difference and that is greed. The other guys (any idiot that would vote to elect Bush) vote strictly on what they "perceive" as their self interest. This is typically either short sighted, mis-informed or flat wrong but it is what they think. We, on the other hand, seem to take a different view of exactly what is in our best interest and it involves a grasp of the bigger picture. We see the fundamental reality of "Pay Me Now or Pay Me Later". We too vote for our own self interest but I believe it is a broader view.
