Thousands of American military personnel died in the last years of the Vietnam War

primarily because the PTB could not admit their mistake. "Leaving now would mean that all those thousands of our KIAs were unnecessary!"

We drive for miles after taking the wrong fork in the road rather than reverse course because we don't want to own our error.

People stay married for years after all love has died because they can't live with the truth that they messed up one of life's most important decisions.

And, because of much the same kind of misguided concern about what others may think of us if we admit we are less than perfect, those who voted for Trump and wore his silly caps now continue to support him---even sing his praises---rather than admit that they were deceived and robbed by the most transparently evil racist sociopath in America's history.

"How can I admit to being THAT stupid?"

"Uh,---MAGA, Y'ALL!"
