When flinging derogatory comments at the Right Winging side of the political aisle, a favorite go to slogan was, "You can't fix Stupid". It offered some small satisfaction and closure when dealing with the idiots of the opposition. Logic certainly was useless as the Right existed and still does in a selfish intractable world devoid of logic and common sense.
I have moved on from the quaint notion, “You can't fix Stupid". More than 30 years of bruises and blackened eyes trying to bring the Stupid back to the world of objectivity and facts has convinced me that the Stupid of the Right will always be stupid and there is nothing I can do about it.
It is obvious to me that the puppet masters pulling the Right Winging strings of their slack jawed minions know what they are doing. They know that what they are doing is evil when looked at using universally accepted rules of ethics and moral behavior. They just do not care as long as they can continue to manipulate the population in the direction that benefits them and those like them. Using lies to build fear and divisiveness, they have been able to move the USA in any direction they want.
To be fair, there are those on the Left who also try to emulate the Right's evil ways. Their efforts are Bush League when compared to the Right’s masterful ability to disseminate fantastical lies as facts
I realize I can't fix Stupid. More importantly, It is Evil I cannot fix. I can only oppose it and try to minimize its impact.
