A few thoughts for Trump supporters and why your non-Trump-supporting friends may be former friends

* Trump is trash and Trump supporters are trash. Trump supporters made a decision to support a person who has contempt for democracy, the United States, and everything that decent people admire and hold dear.

* Trump is a traitor. Trump supporters are traitors.

* Trump supporters are irrational members of a cult of personality and it is pointless to argue with them. They have enthusiastically embraced so many absurdities and lies that there are no logical rules or reality principle that they respect.

* Trump is the opposite of a Christian. He is greedy, arrogant, lustful, wrathful, and lazy. Any Christian who supports Trump is a total hypocrite.

* Jesus' teachings were mostly about helping the poor. Modern Republican platform is mostly targeted against the poor, dedicated to making their lives shorter and more miserable. Anyone who claims to be a Christian and a Republican is a total hypocrite.

* Trump supporters should be angry at Trump that he lied to them and betrayed the country. But instead, they blame liberals. Trump supporters are blinded by partisanship and right-wing propaganda.

* Trump's entire campaign revolved around Trump angrily insulting various groups of Americans (liberals, blacks, immigrants, muslims, women), and Trump supporters saying that Trump is right to do so, and that members of those groups should just deal with it. Now Trump supporters innocently wonder why liberals hold their support of Trump against them.

* Trump campaigned on climate change denial, a policy which will result in the deaths of millions of people.

* Support for Trump is not about traditional conservative principles, such as small government, free trade, or imposing one's conservative religious views on others. Trump didn't campaign on any of these principles. He campaigned on a false claim that conservative white males are being victimized. This is what Trump supporters ultimately support above all else - the myth that they are victims.

The Reagan scam - Reagan's support of free trade/opposition to protectionism ensured the devaluation and loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs. His demonization of taxes and government services ensured that those effected by losses in the manufacturing sector would oppose retraining to help ease the transition to a information-based economy. Thus, Reagan planted the seeds for con artist and fascist candidate Trump.

“A lot of people would like to stay on the sideline and say, ‘Just bomb the place and tell us about it later,’ ” said Representative Jack Kingston, Republican of Georgia, who supports having an authorization vote. “It’s an election year. A lot of Democrats don’t know how it would play in their party, and Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and ask what took him so long.”1
