It never ceases to amaze me how people think. I try very hard to understand why people believe the things they do, whether it be about life, politics, whatever.
That being said, life is really very simple. All persons, no matter their gender, color, religious leanings, sexual preferences or political leanings, should have an equal chance at grabbing the ring on the merry-go-round of life.
Republicans, for whatever reason, do not think that way, at least not in the past 45 years. They used to, but that was when Dwight Eisenhower, the last decent Republican President that I can remember, was in office. He kept the taxes on the wealthy at about 70%, built the modern Interstate highway system, helped the poor and elderly and gave hope to many. The last thing he said before leaving office was "Beware of the Military-Industrial Complex". And he was right!
Between the pharmaceutical companies, the arms manufacturers, munitions manufacturers, fossil fuels industry, the NRA, THE Koch's, Mercers, Trumps, our Government is a wholly owned subsidiary of the GOP and it's owners, who will do anything within it's power to maintain that control, up to and including selling out to Russia and it's rich, powerful Oligarchs.
I realize that there is much "FAKE NEWS" out there, and most of it is on Fox, Breitbart, The Daily Stormer, or the internet. All it takes is for someone to post something derogatory about some segment of your lives, and you believe it religiously, with no thought at all whether it's true or not.
I would hate to live with such a closed mind!
Open up to the possibility that you may just be wrong and read other sources and figure it out, It's not that hard!
Like it or not, you only have one life, don't make it a hateful one! People might even begin to like you!
