CHOICES: Personal and Political

A new friend of mine rose up this afternoon, and in a huff, excused himself from our weekly philosophy group. This was a continuation of some group tension, that first arose last week as I worked to explain my 18 month support of Sen Bernie Sanders ,culminating in an eventual vote for Donald Trump. I have decided that it is not my job any longer, to justify this to those that are clearly just still processing understandable upset, at having gotten behind such a flawed candidate. It will now be on all of you, to explain how you let yourself be fooled into ignoring the populist ardor that had been so on display since the spring of 2015.
