Dear liberal Twitter.

I am a white male in a red rural area of a red southern state.

*DU might find this interesting. Or not. It seems legit from my quick scan*

4. These people interrupt so they don't have to hear the truth. I find that it is best to ask

them a question rather than state a truth. Like if they say something like Trump is the best president ever I ask, "Why do you say that" They usually answer with, "Jobs" Then I ask 'And what else"

Anything they say you can ask questions of and they will be stumped. Because what they say is bullshit.

5. What he said!

Yes! Same here in my county. Guns? What do you do when you are threatened by a five foot rattlesnake lying on top of a strawbale under the laying box? You could do what Billie would do. Pick it up by the tail after taunting it into striking a stick until it tires out and then twirl it around and throw it over the creek. What I do is go get the 4/10. Better than the 22 in that it doesn't blow hole in the chicken house. We live in a very diverse country.

7. LA counties have a huge GDP yet there's an inability to

develop more left, honest media venues to try to tame 30 years of RW hate propaganda especially entrenched in the South and Midwest. It's tragic given our distressed state of the nation and ailing democracy.

K/R kudos to the twitter poster, good job describing the mess.

9. I read the single most imporatant factor: FEAR

Fear of all things democratic (small d), minorities, non-Christians, liberal anything, change, un-pregnant powerful women and more.

Sad, but true!
