36. Loss of faith and done in frustration. Clearly, these folks don't feel the support you think is

It's been pretty sparse at best for more than 20 years.

Patience is in shorter supply than even current events indicate. For every one that has boiled over there are many more simmering pretty hard now and then many more that aren't boiling at all yet that are on the same page ideologically but still have faith and when those flip they can flip hard straight to radicalized and then reason becomes fairly ineffective.

It is also getting thinner on room to even use fear to motivate because it losses it's value when after the "winning" it is straight off to meeting the criminally insane, wicked, and treasonous "in the middle", "looking forward" on off the rails criminality, and worse implementing some of their evil schemes with a little lip stick or different rhetoric.

If they are what we say they are during the elections and are what we say they are with their agenda and obstruction then if we aren't on Operation: Obliteration then we have insane responses to existential threats to life, liberty, and broad prosperity.
