I've obtained new Kaiser polling:

42% of Trump voters say they or their families rely on Medicaid

Large majorities of them oppose cuts

3. I prefer Churchill: "Never give in, never give in, never, never, never,

 

never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense."

4. I like that quote...

I quoted Nietzsche because it illustrates the problem of confronting Deplorables. They are motivated by hate of the other. It is difficult to confront their hate without hating them.


I also like Churchill's quote about arrant pedantry.
