    in disarray right now is not unexpected.  They are Authoritarians after all and they created a mess and now do not want to take blame for it.

    I have found my Facebook friends, of which for many of us consist of both family (extended) and old school friends we have reconnected with... Well, for me I noticed a pattern, the ones who were either ultra religious or paranoid of the government or drink too much themselves (when they do their most rabid writing I might add) many tend to lean to the Right.

    It is a Black and White thinking process.  There is no critical thinking in these people - again, for many that Authoritarianism comes into play (either they like to be bullies and tell people what to do or they like to be told what to do for the structure and/or ease in not making a decision in life).

    In the meantime, our Government IS being taken over by Corporate interests and that is a Fascist Government.

        They're puppeteered by a handful of rich people with relatively large amounts of time and money, so there is a consistent, coordinated drumbeat they march to.  We constantly have to negotiate internally to reach consensus, while they just receive orders and hop to it.
