Things I’ve recently learned and some that I still don’t understand:
1.) Many of the most passionate Bernie Sanders supporters would now rather listen to Susan Sarandon than Bernie himself (don’t understand)
2.) The alt-left is nearly as dangerous, delusional and as blind as the alt-right in the simple fact that they think Hilary is as bad as Trump.
3.) Again and again I keep seeing people post “I’m going to vote with my heart” – NO!! Please don’t do that. Vote with your brain. Use reason, logic and intelligence and not emotion.
4.) Actual real revolutionary change could happen but Americans don’t want it, they either are too whiny, cynical or ambivalent – 70M people don’t vote. If they did, things would be different (don’t understand)
5.) NLP techniques, even when dumbed down, work – Trump repeats little NLP style nuanced sound bites and peoples eyes light up. “It’s gonna be great!” or “We’re going to make the most terrific health care plan ever!” – positive leaning slogans that have no basis in reality. (don’t understand)
6.) Hillary Clinton has actually never been even been charged for a crime yet she’s had to face dozens of accusations. No one is that slippery – even one would have eventually caught up to her at this point should she be guilty. Where there’s smoke there’s fire sorta thing. Or is she Teflon Hilary?
7.) Smart, well intentioned, liberal people who can’t stomach voting for Hilary Clinton are in fact white, employed and privileged. When this idea was initially put forth (by the Atlantic? I forget the original source article) a few months back I didn’t believe it at first. But now, seeing it in action it’s true. I’m stunned. What they need to remember is that it’s not about them – it’s about the decades (60 years maybe?) of civil rights progress that could potentially be set back should Trump become president.
Other things too: the Russians are playing us like a fiddle, main stream media did this to us, not all Trumpers are racists but those who aren’t don’t mind that the rest are
Note: I originally posted this on Facebook and had a hunch that people would resonate or disagree with it but I did expect there to be so much fiery vitriol to go back and forth in the comments. Some of it, admittedly, by myself, got a little carried away. Simply put – after taking 18 months worth of information from countless sources this is my position. I wanted to post a link to the original FB post below so you can check out the community dialogue should you desire.
