Right-wing illusions and fantasies about "freedom".

They are protesting for "freedom".

The government is trying to take their guns. We need to "drain the swamp".

The "liberal left Democrats" have destroyed our nation.

So, in their minds, it is totally alright if the government collapses around their ankles. It wasn't their government. It belonged to someone else. If Donald Trump tears down the government institutions, then they stand side-by-side with him.

Anything would be better than what they had under Barack Obama. Somehow they has surrendered their freedoms to some socialist cabal? They were ready to overthrow it.

They have convinced themselves that whatever happens under Donald Trump is better than what we had before. They have convinced themselves that the grass is much greener now, although in reality, the grass has turned brown.

They live with these fantasies and under the illusion that they now have more "freedom". The truth of the matter is that they are paving the way to take away our freedoms. They have based their entire political philosophy on an illusion.
