"You're so smart, I don't understand why you're conservative?"
That's what a liberal woman said to me years ago at a meeting for the team fighting a Flying J truckstop from coming into Preble NY. Liberals live in a bubble of liberal TV, liberal news, liberal education systems and liberal Hollywood. All their friends are liberal. They do not experience anything outside of that liberal bubble. When they experience someone who is not liberal they don't know how to deal with it. They have been brainwashed to believe that anyone who is not liberal is dumb. Rednecks, white trash etc. What they don't know, they don't know and there is little hope of breaking through years of brainwashing. Leaders on the left, the ones doing the brainwashing, know this and that is why they can lie and make outrageous claims against their opponents. They know the brainwashing will block out the truth. In this election the brainwashing included making their subjects fear Trump. Have you ever heard the term, "Nuclear codes" before this election?
They are sheep lead to the voting booth dutifully pushing the button thinking they know their own mind and doing the right thing. And they don't even know they are being controlled. Sad ain't it.
