17. Oh, honey. People are....just people. That is truth to tell.
The best way I understand it is to listen to country music. I'm more of a left brained liberal thinker(not an oxymoron), the best way way I understand these folks is to listen to country music. There is truth in it. And a lot of pain. The religion and the family things are huge. We can't use "rational thinking" to reach them. This is a very emotional, a very "spiritual" thing for them. I know...this is so weird. They want to be so Republican.

Many of them just don't want to work all that well with facts. Some do ...others ... not so much.

Things would be ever so much better if we were all on the same page, but we aren't. So, same old...same old. We need a better strategy. As a rule, we, as liberals, have been independent, that is our nature. Now, it is better that we come together. That will be a hurdle. I am working on leaping the hurdle.

The true enemy is not conservatism, it is authoritarianism.
