    Its even simpler than your excellent explanation.
    They're in the bubble.
    They live under bullshit mountain. happily. They think its safe there and everything is real and true. Even though they are constantly pissed off at what they learn in there.
    They believe what their chosen 'trusted' sources (Fox and/or Limbaugh/hate radio, RW pastors, and various "Leaders" Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz etc.) have told them and then their fevered minds reduce it to the most diabolical fear they fear most. (redundancy deliberate, LOL)
    They refuse to even consider or listen to any other information, that's all Liberal Lies™.
    It's a belief system, its not reality, or politics, or ideology, or logic, or facts, or reason. They believe it, therefore it's true.
    That's a hard concept for 'us' to get our head around, but for them its natural.

    So they still actually believe its real Socialism (whatever horrors that means to them, whether it's 'like the Nazis,' or Commies, or some Authoritarian dystopia of any stripe...), it's still a "government takeover of health care", death panels will unplug them and/or grandma or their special needs grandkid...on and on... whatever gets them in a state of rage and whips up apoplectic energy to fight it to their last breath.

    They still don't have any idea what "Obamacare" actually is. They still think its some sort of government enforced health care delivery program they have to submit too and they lose all other options.

    I see the ignorance every day in dozens of comment threads. Once a belief is instilled by the very effective closed propaganda network, even those who instilled it can't remove it.

    The good news is, those folks would never change no matter what. Lost cause. Others who are open to new information and education are more and more quickly finding out the truth about the ACA and signing up.

    no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.

      Life under Bullshit Mountain is full of authoritarians who need, yet fear, authoritarianism. It's both their fondest wish and their deepest fear because they need/want a "daddy knows best" authority figure taking care of things and giving them a clear set of rules to follow for success and happiness (if you just believe in Republican Jesus, you'll be rewarded with wealth, and clearly those poor people are poor because it's Republican Jesus punishing them and not crappy bad luck).

      But at the same time, they are terrified that the authority figure will not understand that they are Special. Not only that, but they are Specialer than those other people who are following the same rules, and what if Daddy doesn't realize that?

      How does the Republican Congress sit down with all the butthurt over taxing the wealthy?
