Hellary is a leftist paragon.
We want her to become unable to continue.
Sometimes the motives and intelligence ascribed to our POV is NUTS.
We consider ourselves to be first, honest. Yeah because we use our emotions to support factual outcomes. We do not subscribe to arbitrary faith,
opinion and belief as prime generators of our final analysis.
It's one reason why we are normally correct and religists to be normally wrong when dealing with REAL complicated stuff. The believers are incapable
of allowing the consideration of facts that do not agree with their pre-suppositions.
How could they? They would have to allow that their beliefs are wrong. Since this is a core structure to their existence, if follows that genuine
scientists are their enemies. Deliberate avoidance of facts leads to outcomes NOT based on knowledge.
If you wish to be an adult, a fully adapted being, then you can't do this culling of information prior to FULL consideration.
Conservatives know how everything MUST be due to conceptual limitations. We PROGRESSIVES analyze the NOW with as much info as can be assessed. (We are
aware of limitations.) Then we draw up scenarios to optimize the FUTURE.
Conservatives are without that ability.
It's why you will all become part of a forgotten past. Conservatives are philosophically bankrupt and eventually just die away to join their brethren
in whatever fantasy that they entertain, a stew pot of ego preservations. Conservatives have belief to support them which is the ONLY thing that they
have going for them. It's unfortunate that it does and is a good survival technique in a stagnant existence.
They will cling to varied reports that support them and discard ALL that does not. Hubris inflames them and we rationalist sorts are in wonderment at
their tenacity for supporting 'visions' made of vapor. Reality rarely intrudes in their ruminations for the insulations of modern society from basic
wants and needs permits the continuity of their existence. How can they not be right for they survive? It is the basis of their constant plague of
truly dumb positions.
It's because of the structures imposed on the greater society by superior reasoning. Reasoning that they can reject but is the only cause for their
ability to reject. Democracy demands that we listen to them but normally that is a minor imposition that can be dealt with because they are inherently
inferior and, relatively, easily dismissed.
