    When a liberal mind finds that fact contradicts the "play book" it resorts to attacking the character of any opponents. Truth (fact) falls by the wayside since many "smart" people are educated beyond their intelligence.

    Not much there except to argue over the election of Donald Trump. Allow me to point out one fallacy in that religious screed.

    "Progressive bubble-dwellers’ nutty notions about Trump’s victory can be traced to one primary cause: their own mountainous vanity. They cannot conceive of how dangerous and destructive millions of Americans believe Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party to be."

    While it is true that some people voted against the Clinton Presidency, rather than for Donald Trump, the largest bloc of important votes came from those who were not likely to vote. People who did not participate in any election the previous four years turned out to vote for the GOP Trump-Pence ticket because they were motivated by Donald Trump's rhetoric. The key talking points were the revitalization of heavy industry and a curtailment of immigration. Around those two foci many other related issues orbited.
