An interesting story.

 

For these people, and millions like them, reality has been cancelled out.  In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, their self-defeating belief system remains firmly imbedded.  It is a sad testimony to the power of the right wing media, on the gullible. 

 

That the family could have their lives improved by Social Security disability payments for the last 20 years and still be fanatically opposed to government social programs shows the extent of their psychic disconnect.  They are part of the permanent national psychosis in which a cult of ignorance flourishes.  Like some destructive autoimmune disease, these people have turned on themselves, and can't stop.

Back in the 90's, a co-worker's husband died at 40 of a heart attack.  She received Social Security widow's compensation, and Social Security survivor's compensation for her two young children.  She was fanatically Right Wing Republican.  Her adult daughter, and young grandchild, lived with her.

 

When her daughter lost her job, and applied for DCFS help; she was kicked out of the house.  My co-worker said that she didn't tolerate "deadbeats living off the government dole" living in her house.
