Trump's base in a nutshell

Trump's base can be basically separated into two groups.
1. Those who are really dumb asses.
2. Those who are making money off of really dumb asses.
Did I leave out anyone?

1. You covered all the bases.

I wonder if group #2 ever considered the consequences if group #1 figured it out?

2. They won't

 

They all know that these people are too dumb to figure out they are being played.

9. Group 2 are also dumb asses

because their sole god is the pursuit of money. Greed can never be satisfied. I practise Tibetan Buddhism, and in this tradition greed is a negative emotion that can lead to rebirth in the realm of the hungry ghosts. Beings in that realm have big huge bellys, long thin necks, teensy little mouths. So whenever they are able to find and eat morsel of food, it burns painfully as they try to swallow it, and their stomachs are never full. There is great suffering and no happiness in that realm.

Now I don't actually believe that there is a real physical realm for hungry ghosts. It is more a constant mental state that is habitually cultivated over and over by greedy people, such as Donald Trump. Do you think that man is actually happy? I don't think so.

Working hard to accumulate wealth for yourself and family is not bad. But when it is the sole reason of one's existence, well how empty is that? Trump has no real friends. His sycophant grifter enablers don't give a damn about him. He is a sick loathsome POS.

11. I agree 100,000,000%!

Intention is everything. With them, greed & power is everything.

I much prefer Asian philosophy to Western religions. I suppose if I had to be an "ist" I would be Daoist or Tibetan Buddhist. It all makes perfect sense to me.

3. Any woman who supports Trump. . .

. . .is most likely married to someone in group #2.

15. You would think, but that is not my experience. I know as many women MAGAs as men.

And these are not "subservient" women.

4. Plus those who are obsessed with-and-by power.

This category can cover the broadest of range ::

from simple/simplistic racism, all the way to malevolent narcissism, with a stop somewhere in between at authoritarianism along the way.

13. I have had similar conversations

With very well educated, wealthy chump supporters. They look past his bs because they fear redistribution of wealth.

I would much rather everyone have what they need & a shot at realizing some dreams & be able to leave the house. (Isolation for me is not much different than pre-covid, due to exceptionally high violent crime in Memphis region. Can't get away from it.)

14. They think they're "owning the Libs" by supporting Chump

Little do they know, they've signed away their children's future.

7. Yep

("They all know that these people are too dumb to figure out they are being played" )

What's the old Mark Twain quote. "It's easier to fool someone than to convince them that they have been fooled".

Racism and stupidity compose the keystone of the Republican party.
