Exchanges with Trump supporters quickly bring a number of things into high relief.

Some of those things are:

Their loss of any reference to principle. Their moral compass has somehow lost its ability to find True North.

Their notable loss of any ability to discern the moral difference between pragmatic/utilitarian choices based on perceived political expedience and choices based on principle.

Their open scorn for any mention of the demands of conscience.

Their open scorn, and even vitriolic hatred, for anyone who acts on conscience rather than on perceived political expedience.

Unsurprising, since the Trump GOP booed conscience at their convention in Cleveland.

The Democrats boo God.

The Republicans boo conscience.

These are the moral depths to which these “two” ruling parties have descended.

​And folks wonder why the country is in a mess?
