I have some relatives that I consider bat-shit crazy, because they vote for liberals. Trying to have a logical conversation with them is fruitless. They arrive at their opinions without logic, or any understanding of the cost of their belief in something that always fails. I avoid them, since I really don't have anything I want to say to them that even hints at being polite.
I guess we've reached a tipping point. Those that believe taxing people to death, and allowing the government to remove all vestiges of liberty are in complete disagreement with those that don't. While they have a right to their belief, they don't have a right to demand confiscatory taxes, and unbridled bureaucracy.
What's the answer? There are many, but I'm to that point where time doesn't allow long periods for unraveling the Gordian Knot created by a those as ignorant as a bag of hammers. Many want to take the time to untie the knot. I don't. It costs too much, and the ultimate result is the same as just cutting the knot.
The midterms will determine much of how the country evolves. Make sure you vote, and remember: if you're willing to sacrifice liberty for security, you really shouldn't vote.
