    They fear change.  They fear the fact that they are poorer now than 20 years ago, but can't figure out who is to blame.  They certainly refuse to blame the trickle-up policies they have supported since they voted for Ronnie "I don't recall" Reagan.  Introspection is not the strong suit of an average conservative, I believe.  

    They say they fear the "collapse of the institution of marriage".  What that means- who knows?  They certainly can't define it, but their preacher and their local politician makes it sound plausible.  How it will happen- again, who knows?  More married couples somehow breaking the institution of marriage is a contradiction.  Unless gay divorces will somehow do worse than celebrity 5 day marriages or RushL's 4 or 5 serial divorces or ...  My brain hurts just thinking about their insanity.

      insanity."  Absolutely. I've tried to understand how they feel and think, but contemplating the mental contortions and contradictions hurts my head. In some ways, despite my disgust for many of their policies, I pity them. I cannot imagine going through life so filled with fear, hate, and the constant struggle to explain and support those contradictions they are rife with, so often against their own best interests.  

      You are my brother, my sister.
