He didn't really leave the left. The left left him. In their endless crusade to look better than everyone else, they all took on a giant sprint to get even lefter than other lefties. How else could the typical egocentric lefty consider itself to be more virtuous and better than all the people around them, if those people have all actually listened and started blabbering the exact same shit? The answer is: they quickly need to get even more left than them, as to stand out again! Because being equal sucks if all you've got is an ego the size of the sun and it craves constant praise.

I took me a few months to figure out that the Democrat party I was registered with for more than 10 years had changed so much I didn't belong there any more. I actually had to sit down and think "What happened? Did I change? Why don't I fit in at these Hillary events? Why don't I agree with her more often?" The party left me I stayed the same.

This schism in the liberal mindset, along with disgusting DNC corruption and a Republican leadership vacuum are a big part of why Trump was able to win. Both parties fractured in their own way, with the regressive left splitting Dems and a mixture of Tea Party/Libertarian sentiments splitting the Right. Trump saw a demographic that was largely ignored and voiceless within their own party and ran with exactly what they wanted to hear. To be fair, he's made it clear that he intends to keep all his party promises, EXCEPT for draining the swamp. If anything he's already shown he's as much on the team of lobbyists and bankers as anyone. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/trump-dodd-frank-friends-cant-get-loans

I believe there is a regressive right and a regressive left (though they are regressive for different reasons), and both groups tend to have their own flavor of authoritarian behavior. What worries me right now is that both subgroups are very easily manipulated vocal minorities that are polarizing public opinion.

And they are Satanists. As per Cheryl Mills the Dems. top lawyer who emailed the gang about "sacrificing a chicken in the backyard to Moloch". A lawyer. It may have been a joke but normal Americans could just smell that they were WEIRD! Their Wikileaks real emails were WEIRD!! Off the satan bus for me too thanks.

Actually think this video articulates very well my feelings on everything a year or so ago. Thanks for posting, looking forward to using this to explain next time I get caught up in one of the tedious arguments you get into with the 'holier than thou' types who call themselves progressives but really don't follow politics as much as they claim.
