During the past week, I have encountered two breath-taking articles about Kentucky voters who supported the orange-haired, criminal, and traitor President-elect Trump. Both articles, one at Vos and the other at Salon raised the issue of how these same voters historically vote against their own interests. The Salon author, Gary Legum, claims that these voters are now worried that Trump will terminate their healthcare during his presidency as he promised on the campaign trail. The author says that many of them voted for him after hearing this promise because they did not believe him. To them Trump's statements were just political speech and these voters over the years have considered such speeches as BS.
Evidence to the contrary on political speeches exists all around them. These same voters elected a fraud for governor named Matt Blevins who has tried to kill Obamacare, unsucessfully, and two senators, Paul and McConnell who have and are spearheading attempts to do the same. In addition, the Kentucky House delegation has voted with other GOP members to kill Obamacare sixty times! All of whom these people have elected.
Given this history, what part of "I am going to repeal Obamacare" these people don't understand? Well, I am not a psychoanalyst, but I have to conclude that these voters are stupid. This stupidity has to be based on at least four reasons:
1. Ignorance - unable/unwilling to think critically (connect the dots) about the real world they actually live in.
2. Hatred of the Democratic Party dating back to when LBJ signed the 1965 Civil Rights Bill.
3. Racism - Obama is a black man.
4. Religion - a warped Christian belief that has been passed down over decades to rationalize their pathetic lives and a belief system which is based on falsehoods perpetuated by their families, friends, and politics.
All I can express for these people is pity. Maybe when they start dying and going bankrupt from medical problems and a lack of insurance, they will understand the real world, but somehow I doubt that will suffice to wake up these GOP zombies.
Comments to think about.
