Response to NastyRiffraff (Original post)

12. Something terrible has happened in this country.

It reminds me of...a cult. There are some people who can be brainwashed enough to follow a cult leader, let him (and it's always a "him" punish their children, cut them off from family, take their money, and sometimes even murder for him. They continue to follow the cult leader.

That's what this seems like to me.

It's just possible it's a similar thing. Democrats may not be as prone to becoming cult followers. I know that I am not. Maybe liberals are more independent thinkers? More prone to be suspicious of authoritarian so-called leaders?

If this is what's going on, that's very difficult to fix, since many, I've read, require extreme deprogramming. This is scary that there are SO MANY in our country who are like this.
