Really Folks What Is It That Explains MAGA Hat Supporters Of Trump?

Indeed, folks what is that leads somewhere between 35 and 40 percent of the American public (MAGA HATS) to fanatically side with the Klu Klux Klan and Neo Nazi skinheads in support of pure evil — Donald John Trump. Here is a man who is transparently a serial liar, a bragger of sexually harassing women; a man who has been a bush league criminal his entire life and destroys all and everything that comes into his orbit; a man who is an out and out traitor to his country and one whom serious, responsible folks have called a moron, a reckless child; a man whom international leaders — except for despots who exploit his stupidity and egotism — despise immensely. Yet millions of Americans claim to love him.

What gives with this masochistic behavior of such a significant portion of the American citizenry? It has got to be much more than merely the idea that some folks believe that the system has let them down, and so they have decided to become a disciple of the Devil in protest.

Yes, as with men such as Hitler and Stalin before him, Trump represents within the human family the destructive side of nature. For certain, without what I call probability balance, my term for the ultimate unwritten law of the universe, the attraction of Trump and his ilk to a large chunk of humanity would be wholly inexplicable.

For those of you who have missed my endless explanations of probability balance let me state it once again. Very simply put, nature (the universe) is constantly offsetting creation with destruction at some probable point in time — balance — stars are bore and stars die. Within humanity this law translates to the fact that peace is always at some point in time offset by war and love by hate, or in the political realm a man of high moral charter such as Barack Obama is most likely offset by a sleazy bag such as Donald Trump. Alas, this means that the destructive force of Trump and his followers are an inevitable part of nature that must be fended off but can never be permanently eliminated. Indeed, the balancing formula of nature cannot be overridden, simple endured.

And so my friends we do the best we can during this negative offset period of the Donald, hoping that the eventual positive offset of him will be worth his pain, and realizing that like it or not he and his MAGA hat supporters are a force of nature that neither they nor we ultimately control.
