one thing strikes me about the most vocal rank & file trump supporters, the 'joe six-packs' of the world... how uneducated they seem to be.

let's not mince words: reallllly fucking dumb. failed by their upbringing, and unable to properly educate themselves about anything. easily misled because they don't have the tools to know better.

the depressing thing is, it's literally millions and millions of people.

how does anyone even begin repairing a large segment of society like that?

how does one make dumb people not dumb, without it immediately making it seem to them that it's some libtard agenda to brainwash them and take away their guns?

dunning kruger effect also.


also i am having difficulty finding "unity" with people who wear 6MWE t-shirts and whatnot.

i want to support my fellow citizens that aren't trying to burn everything down.

so, obviously, there needs to be some sorting done on this. we can't "all" come together and heal.

i don't need to share my space with neonazis, et al. it doesn't matter if they didn't get enough love as a child, that's not on anybody to fix. fuck fatalism. you're an adult, you make choices, and they stick to you.
