logic and trump supporters

Go Figure

“If logic doesn’t form the basis of opinion, logic can’t change that opinion.”

I wish I’d said it; I did not. I wish I’d read it sooner. Perhaps this explanation would have softened my feelings about people I’m fond of but who support tRump.

I believe those who support him have extremely impaired values. I’ll go even farther and state I put as much space between those folks and myself as possible.

Today I ran into our resident handyman, an ardent DJT supporter, who also happens to be a decent, honest guy. We’ve had many discussions about his political opinions and manage to maintain civility.

I couldn’t understand how he can support a man who has zero redeeming characteristics. He had no issues with POTUS denigrating, women, Hispanics, African Americans and anyone who does not appear to have Nordic characteristics.

Surely mocking a disabled journalist would cause any decent person to rethink their loyalties. None of those offenses was the silver bullet that shattered his belief.

He had not supported Trump based on logic. I have a hunch his opinions were formed by too much talk show radio and too many television preachers.

I’m going to hazard a guess that it was full throttle fear that caused his change of heart.

Logic did not prevail for the 2016 election and is glaringly absent from most of our elected officials.

Fear can be a powerful motivator when logic fails. I’m hoping a lot of folks are scared to death right now.
