I can understand the racial, and government dependency voting blocks intransigence, but the ideologically driven willful blindness and self-delusional, psychologically personality defining inability to objectively ingest disturbing truths of such a large majority of democrats is astounding to me.
The majority of liberal/progressives that have abandoned absolutes regarding religions and moral and ethical truths are now so dependent on their political belief systems that anything that might raise self-awareness and doubt is mentally ostracized and rationalized away. This can be an equally dangerous disease for the conservative patriot as well, but far less so because we believe in absolutes and thus have something outside of ourselves that is an eternal truth to posit political ethics against.
