    The GOP has been courting this type of voter since Nixon’s Southern Strategy. The chickens are coming home to roost.

    GOP autopsy 2012: we should connect with minorities and women.
    GOP strategy 2016: we should marginalize minorities and women.

    They correctly observed that they weren’t connecting with minorities and women. What they were not able to do is admit that their POLICIES marginalized minorities and women and change them. So they doubled down and worked on eliminating those inconvenient voters. It’s starting to look like apartheid here and there, just more subtle…

    They have no idea how to connect to people they find abhorrent and icky, which is most people.

    Bordering on fascism? More like full-fledged fascism.

    If Trump becomes president, I hope Canada will accept refugees from the U.S…..

    My feeling is that they’re trotting out the craziest a year early, so that when they finally produce someone like the last few candidates, it’ll be such a contrast and such a relief, that it’ll almost seem like an improvement WAS made over 2012…

    Why do people hate people of other races, colors, and other countries?
    We are all people!
    Have people always been this way?
    If only we could look past the outward differences, and see each other’s likeness and same-ness we could get a lot done.
    I wish that war didn’t make a handful of people immensely rich. If we weren’t so quick to cast blame and aspersions at each other?
    I wish that instead of a few getting rich off war, that every one would get extreme pain, if people got pain, or poorer, not just they average people but the rich, we would see a lot fewer wars.

    I couldn’t agree more. Trump – and plenty of other Republicans – are outright fascists.

    Yup, people have always been that way. The world is scary. The offer of friendship, the feeling that this person is like me and therefore can be depended on, so I’m not all alone in a scary world is a basic human reaction. It is reinforced if you can be against “them”, so you know that you are part of “us”. So, we make up reasons why the other guys are “them” instead of “us”. Race and Religion are handy, but if we didn’t have them, blue eyed people and brown eyed people would have to be “us” and “them”. Or, as a last resort, we could just force “them” to wear stars.

    Jonathon Haidt, in his 2007 Science paper studying moral foundations, said that in-group loyalty was one of the basic principles and held with about equal importance by both liberals and conservatives. However, the difference between the two political orientations might be what defines the in-group and how large that in-group is. He, at that time, thought that people were tending toward larger groups than in the past. However, I don’t know where he has gone with this aspect since that time.
