Because I cannot see how else their minds wrap around the obviousness of their choice. Yet that is still not enough to shake their view. I suppose their fear deep down has so strangled out any goodness they may have had that no amount of showing evidence of the poor being discarded like rubbish and the wealthy being treated even more like Kings seems to sway them. The survival of the fittest and austerity is their remedy for everyone else as long as they can stay comfortable in their "big government" jobs. It is like the union worker who votes republican. It doesn't seem to matter to them that the republican party is out to destroy unions from existence, thus putting the union worker out of a good paying job, no the union worker who votes republican doesn't seem to be bothered by this.
Where logic ends and voting for republicans begins is the nexus I am most baffled by. The party of Trump and his haters seem good enough for Christian evangelicals. That is another paradox I am astounded by. I do believe that Christians do not know what it means to be a Christian as long as they get to pretend that they are one. Pretend, maybe that is it. Living life as a pretend makes them not have to deal with reality. Maybe it is reality that has them befuddled and ignoring it or denying it is their path forward. Sad really.
