When an extremist’s agenda fails, they blame it on how they didn’t take their extremism far enough and so the answer is always to double down. And once a person has it in their head that they are on God’s side anyone who disagrees with them is evil.

re: #1 Mich-again

I see what you describe a lot here in GA. GOP/TPers keep voting the same politicians into office to run the state because they say, “GA is a conservative state,” and when their lives don’t improved, it’s always Pres. Obama’s and/or democrats’/liberals’ fault. They seem incapable of making the connection between the lack of progress in this state to those whom they elect to hold the reins of government. We’re at, or near, the bottom in education, healthcare, infrastructure, quality of life, etc., but all that matters to them is that GOP/TP politicians are in power. SMDH.

what they actually traffic in is the Godwin-approaching level of “Triumph of the Will”.

Our Conservative Base believes that by merely believing in something it can be made manifest.

America is in “decline” because of Obama. Not because China and other once-closed economies and now open and present lower manufacturing costs, better consumer growth prospects, and nearly non-existent ecological standards. “Decline” to them means a relative inability to keep up with someone who has virtually nothing and then has $5 in his pocket. Meanwhile, the average American still makes about 10x the average Chinese citizen.

…That Global Climate Change is not demonstrably provable Scientific paper reality, but instead merely a Federal fund-grabbing scam by Liberal scientists bent on limiting America’s business community.

…That America can be “Great Again™” by literally clinging to (white man Jesus) Guns N’ Religion….ironically, things that up-and-coming economies like China do not have an interest in on a generally public level. Irony exemplified.

…That European countries are “Godless Socialists” but somehow have economies that have a better Social Mobility standard than the US- i.e. the ability to “lift yourself up by your bootstraps.”

I could go on and on but why? It will ring hollow against the rhetoric that champions reality-rejecting ignorance in favor of infantile jingoistic horse shit.
