How alot of America lost its mind (which part depends on your POV)

via Cracked.com

I’ll admit I’m a bit of a Cracked fan anyway, they’re usually vulgar, often funny, and not infrequently on point when it comes to their topic of choice.

I debated trying to post this on my Facebook page, I have A LOT of FB friends who are incredibly anti-Trump, to the extreme of posting (regularly) those memes that basically state that “if you’re voting for Trump, just unfriend me now”.  And this is by far one of the best explanations for why I see people voting for Trump (yes, there’s more to it than this, but as a basic explanation?  It’s pretty darn good.).  But in the end, I’m not sure it’s worth the effort, and I’ve put a lot of work into keeping my FB feed non-political.  Other than the occasional anti-both party meme’s I don’t post ANYTHING political.  Among other things I was raised to believe that screaming arguments over politics in public are impolite.  And this election in particular has brought out the screaming arguments!

And actually, though the point of the article was Trump, this does a pretty good explanation of why Hillary is as popular as she is too……

    That is indeed an interesting article and so very, very sad. Probably true, but sad.

      The divide between city and non-city is really obvious here in NY. I have no doubt that the STATE will go for Hillary, due to NYC, the capital, and other larger cities. But as soon as you get out of the city proper (any of them) here Trump signs are EVERYWHERE. The non-city area of the state is far larger than the city area (when measured by square footage) but the number of people in the cities so far outnumbers the rest of the state…..Upstate NY is a completely different state, in so many ways. Not just politically!

    Not a day goes by when I feel the urge to join Facebook. I’m so glad I have avoided that mess.
    Likewise there’s a similar divide and circumstances here in California, and we moved to the country for just that reason – and so we wouldn’t be out-numbered in the non-city/metro environment when the SHTF.
    I’ve been to upstate NY and liked it, but I couldn’t wait to get out of The City that I accidentally got into because I was in the wrong lane and was forced through a tunnel – and crap! A pothole the size of my old car almost swallowed me, but I whipped ahead of a cab driver and between a truck and missed it before making my escape. The drop would have broken my front axle bent the pan of the ’60 Ghia.
