Quite the righteous rant. I agree with almost all of it (I can never put my finger on a fundamental reasoning behind Hillary Hatred. Not even the trifecta woman+liberal+techocrat justifies the irrational intensity felt for the Shelob of Chapaqua). Two things that don't get touched on much are that 1: most Americans feel very disconnected from "government" (my argument consists of pointing to voter participation and the level of understanding of how government works) which leads them to believe 2: all that "shaking them up" they approve of Trump doing won't affect them at all.

For them (my people) it is literally all a show. And they love the show Trump is putting on. They really do hate THOSE people (and the black/Latino/Muslim guy they know is OK because he's not one of THEM), and they are very very happy someone is finally pointing a finger and naming names to blame for the collapse of the world they know. But, like Mother Nature, Reality always bats last.

"He hates the same people I hate. Hand me the goddamn ballot."

It's that simple. A lot of people don't want to go there for professional reasons, or aesthetic reasons, or political reasons.

But that's it. Right there. The whole of the law and the prophets.
The rest is commentary.
