A gentle reminder...

... that, as an example, in my state, it's currently estimated that 57% will vote for OD. [www.270towin.com]

... should I then come to the conclusion that over half of my state's residents are, well, insane?

Remember that we have to live / deal with these folks after the results of the election, whatever those results turn out to be.

I hope that if (when) Biden wins, we can somehow undo all the propaganda and programming that's been done... I would describe it as akin to cult deprogramming, because good luck trying to convince these folks that OD is anything other than Jesus.

Trumpism is a religion, not a political ideology. His followers don't really care about politics, they are looking to be "saved."

Not until a new Fairness Doctrine gets implemented and Fox News and right-wing radio like Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Savage, etc. go away. That is the propaganda generating machine that needs to be destroyed.
