Excerpts:

You have never read the Constitution and you never will.

You don’t want a President to govern for you, you want a king to rule over you. At a rally held by Steve Bannon this past March, a very passionate and angry woman took the microphone and said, “Never in my life did I think I would like to see a dictator, but if there’s gonna be one, I want it to be Trump!” which was met with loud cheers and applause from Bannon and the crowd. If you hear that and cheer, then you are not for freedom — you are for fascism. You don’t want an elected official to govern on behalf of the people, you want an authoritarian dictator who will enforce on everyone else what you believe and punish those who don’t.

You have no moral authority and are not really a Christian. Trump has cheated thousands of people whom he hired in the past for jobs, then simply told them, “I’m not paying you. Sue me,” and in the 2000’s he ran a fake University to which he had to pay a $25,000,000 settlement to the people he scammed (Greed). He has cheated on all his wives with porn stars (Lust); spends the vast majority of his time locked in his room watching TV instead of working (Sloth); binges on nothing but fast-food and soda (Gluttony); publicly belittles his own staff and tries to destroy anyone who criticizes him (Wrath); hates how great patriots like John McCain and Barack Obama are beloved by America and tries to tear them down out of jealousy (Envy); He is a raging narcissist who speaks of himself in the third person, boasts about his minor achievements with lavish parties and press opportunities, holds rallies only for the purpose of feeding his own ego, and repeatedly claims, “Nobody can do it but me! Nobody knows more than me! No one can solve our problems but me!” (Pride).



You are probably a racist, even if you don’t realize it.

You get all your information from Fox News and believe anything they or Donald Trump say no matter how false it is.

You don’t love veterans as much as you think you do.

You are not really a patriot; you are just tribal.

Your ego is just as big as Trump’s.

IMO, a belief system liable to lose the lion's share of the Midwest's electoral votes, again.

When can we ever get conservatives on here who will argue the points made in an article?
I've instead elected to mention its possible consequences. If you want to argue how stupid Trump supporters are, you don't need conservatives. The echo chamber seems well manned.

No. If you want to argue how stupid Trump supporters are, all you have to do is listen to what they SAY and watch WHAT THEY DO. There's no need to make shit up, they REALLY ARE THAT STUPID.

A few timely FYIs from Brookings:

... in Virginia, Democrats picked up enough seats in their legislature to gain control of both houses, making Virginia a completely blue state for the first time in more than two decades. Election results from Kentucky and Virginia showed Democrats continuing their strength in the suburbs—the same places that helped them to victory in 2018.

... in spite of Washington’s obsession with impeachment, it looks like it was not much of an issue in any of the races this week
[11/4]. In Kentucky, the incumbent Republican Governor Matt Bevin was very unpopular, which may have been more important to the close outcome than the fact that he tried to tag Attorney General Andy Beshear with impeaching Trump. Beshear refused to take the bait. ... [Beshear won in a close race]

... Demographic trends like the maturation of a generation of Latino voters, for instance, may start to have electoral consequences in 2020. There could be as many as six House seats in play in Texas next year. Or there may be other issues, more local in nature, that end up swaying voters. For instance, from October of 2018 to September of 2019 farm bankruptcies rose 24% and reached the highest level seen since 2011.[1] That may undercut Trump’s rural base.

The fact that public opinion on impeachment and opinion on Trump appears to be stuck in a holding pattern may simply be a reflection of a firmly polarized electorate. If, as appears to be the case, a trial in the Senate is wrapped up by early 2020, impeachment may be a distant memory by November.

[1] “Twenty-seven states saw a rise in bankruptcies compared to the previous year. The report also estimates that farm debt will rise to $416 billion by the end of 2019.” Farm Bankruptcies Rise in Over Half of States.

How well did the "deplorables" strategy work for you in 2016?
