Something just occurred to me about the current bizarreness of the cohort of the conservative and Republican party.
I have a university degree in psychology, so I started searching on the comorbid psychopathology of conservatism and found this research on Dimensions of Oppositional Defiant Disorder as Predictors of Depression and Conduct Disorder in Preadolescent Girls.
Oddly enough, it fits.
Here's a video to give you an idea who Donald John Trump is, just by what we ALL know about.
What I realized was that this cohort of conservative Republicans were damaged, had been for years. In 2009 they knew it, in 2013 they knew it and they did NOTHING about it to FIX it. They put together a group to do an autopsy on what was wrong with them.
Both times, they ignored and and pushed on until finally...
Along comes Donald Trump. A predator, who saw a dysfunctional GOP and then moved on them knowing he could get away with abusing an already dysfunctional group, grabbed control of their dysfunction and emotions, AS WE'VE ALL SEEN, and so, here we are today.
I mean, how does that NOT explain the situation we find our government in today? It fully does. Even to the point of them having daddy issues, an anti authority orientation (hating government) with an adoration and desire for being told what to do by a truly dumb autocrat.
So yes, these conservativse and Republicans are basically Trump loving dysfunctional teenage girls. with ODD, conduct disorder, and depression.
