Trump will bend all laws to accord with his warped sense of self. What damage he does not do will be accomplished by those close to him, some of whom are inarguable Nazis. Whatever bad thing your imagination leads you to has a chance of happening. The United States of America in a new Trump term will be the most miserable country in the world.

If Trump gets in, it won't be a question of how bad things get. It will only be a question of how quickly he takes us there.

I see the atrocities and derangement of the former POTUS, and I often wonder how he could still be in the running. It occurs to me that so much of this information, so much of the craziness, is never ever seen by his supporters. They live in quite a bubble of misinformation and mistrust. Or they simply don't pay attention to anything except their partisan inclinations.

I understand the misgivings about supporting the current POTUS. He's often forgetful and feeble. Hell! ..he's old! But 'sleepy Joe' is still a far more rational choice than the alternative.

It's a tremendous problem that information like this mostly only gets out to those who are already convinced that Donald is narcissistic and nuts. ..A true sociopath. But how do we convince his minions? The people who refuse to listen to anything but their own echo chamber? How do rational views get to those who need to hear them most? ...I don't know anymore.

How do rational views get to those who need to hear them most?

Thanks to the rise of conservative media outlets they don't.

"How do rational views get to those who need to hear them most?"

People get the views the Invisible Hand wants them to get.

That's how Capitalism is supposed to work.

That's a feature, not a bug.
