    My wife's father was die hard Republican. Then he went on medication for his incredibly awful temper, anxiety and so forth. He significantly mellowed out.

    A few years later he went so far as to vote for Obama. He is  now convinced that Republicans don't care about people like him; his family was barely above the poverty line for much of his life.

    This was preceded by years of die-hard Bush worship and consistent discussions about how me and my wife were naive about this stuff.

    So, honestly, I'm convinced that a lot of this is almost just a demonstratable mental illness lol. Maybe that sounds really mean, but I mean it in a good way.

    Once he stopped being paranoid (or at least not AS paranoid) and incredibly negative, the republican memes lost a lot of spark.
