Incomprensible verdict

These jurors simply ignored the law and acquitted these thugs. They've sent a message out to all of the armed right wing crazies that it is just fine to show up and invade someone's property and occupy it if you've decided that you have a right to do so.

This puts me in an apocalyptic frame of mind.

God, this country is starting to resemble Weimar Germany more with each passing day.

Me too!

It took me 5 minutes at most.

I live in Collin county Texas. Plano to be more precise.

The precincts in this part of Plano are deep, deep Red.

There is very low turnout for early voting here. Dallas is another story. Very Blue and the turnout is setting records. It was heavy for the last two elections and reportedly may double that.

Low Republican turnout may define the outcome of this election. I know a lot of Republicans. And many are saying they can't bring themselves to vote for Trump.

Yes, yes you can

That is entirely the point right now. Clinton is using a form of political jujitsu that only an amateur would fall for. Trump is not a politician and has had a lifetime of positive results from always going on the attack.

This time though the optics really, really suck and they will just keep getting worse.

The right wing media machine have spent over two decades turning Clinton into some sort of Boogieman/Shiva hybrid that everyone that listens and watches (Fox) instinctively reviles on a basic, lizard brain level.

Trump is rendering that almost inoperative. Before he is finished people that today revile her are going to start seeing her in a sympathetic light.

The core Trump support--the ultra authoritarians will eat up everything he spews. The more normal will find him so repellent that they'll vote for Clinton just to prevent him from ever occupying the Oval office.
