For those with Trump supporting/Republican family/friends

Have you ever asked them if they would actually prefer living in a country like Russia? Would they enjoy living under an authoritarian regime with no rights, no free speech, no guns, no free press, and mass poverty if they're not in the government?

I'm sure there is massive cognitive dissonance there, but for those that would oppose living like that, I wonder if they realize that is exactly the path America is headed. They will no longer have any rights under Trump/the GOP.

1. I have written them off as having died and never been recovered.

They are no longer germane to my life and no part of it either.

3. They tell me God led Trump to be president.

I tell them God is a tricky joker.

4. So by that logic, God also led Obama to be president.

 

You should tell them God doesn't support people like Trump. Trump is an anti-Christ.

10. Then I get, the line,

Oh we should all just get along and love each other. I can't stand it. I just quit trying.

You are right, that logic means Obama was led by God too. Craziness.

5. These are the same people who feared Russia and referred to Putin as KGB

Only months before Trump's election.

Now they are like "meh" about Russia, but scared of MS-13, antifa, BLM, and undocumented immigrants. Amazing and sad to witness how easy they were manipulated.

8. We will ALWAYS have guns.

Even in Russia v.2.0.

Guns help in thinning the herd and will always provide easy justification for the upstart rabble to be locked away forever.

As long as those in charge have superior firepower--and they always will; make no mistake about it--it absolutely doesn't matter if the dipshits of America stock up on assault weapons and bump stocks.

9. They're all so brainwashed there is no getting through to them

All they know is the radio and the teevee tells them how to think act speak and vote. Most of the ones in my family have been listening to Rush since he came on the radio. They think Trump will give them their dream world where there isn't anyone to challenge their beliefs or otherwise upset them. That's what they really want, a nation full of people exactly like them, where any challenge to conformity and homogeneity is met with swift reprisal.

11. They all think it won't happen in the U.S.

I'm starting to get very concerned about it. I'm 61 years old so I don't worry so much for me but the younger generation is screwed I do believe.

12. You don't understand. If Trump tells them that would be wonderful,

they will smile and nod, assured that he has their best interests to heart even if all that comes to pass. They are so brainwashed they can no longer think beyond the propaganda so they don't see the danger. Don't worry, Trump is the only one who can fix it.
