From a friend, who nails it:
Most of the legitimate extreme objections to Trump are “personal” — to his rhetoric, his personality, his style. Sure, people of good faith can object to this policy or action or that — but that’s true of any President. Trump has not fundamentally changed or transformed the country, and 90%-plus of his policies and actions fall within the window of what could easily have been done by one or more of his predecessors. My objections to most of the Democratic candidates are not personal (except maybe in Schoolmarm Liz’s case) — they are rooted in policy. Policies rooted in collectivism and “social justice theory” (the bastard child of Frankfurt School Marxism and postwar French deconstructionism), that no credible candidate seems ready to disavow, are (a) repugnant to me, and (b) well outside this country’s historical norms. Four more years of Trump will not fundamentally change the country. Four years of a semi-moderate Democrat with a Republican Senate probably won’t either. But four years of Liz or Bernie or (probably) Joe, without a GOP Senate, probably would. I do not want my children to have to grow up in a bigger, worse version of 1970s Britain.
