In hindsight, everything happens for a reason. It is just that while it is happening, you are bound by your personal beliefs that you can’t see clearly.
I have once felt that American is focusing too much on so-called ‘political correctness’, and leaning towards the left. This once bothered me a little bit, but then I thought it is normal. In hind sight, the fact that I have once thought about this shows many Americans must have felt the same way, but way stronger.
Even though you may have a little doubt. Surrounding yourself with people who have the same opinion can help you eliminate some of the doubt, or just simply ignore it.
This does not just apply to Hillary’s supporter, but to Trump’s supporter as well. In a tight race like this, if Hillary happens to win, then I’m sure the same line of arguments will still be raised, but just on different sides. Hillary’s supporter will can Trump’s supporters ‘brainwashed’. This has two meanings. First, it is an act of friendliness. That the opposite party is not inherently different and thus ‘bad’, but rather mislead by their leaders is a sign that they can and should unite together after the election. Second, it is also a demonstration of power. Since they have already won, they can make themselves look very insightful and smart. And it will be the sad Trump supporters who are calling Hillary supporters ‘stupid’, and proud Hillary supporters will respond claiming they are ignorant of half of America’s need.
In this perspective, supporters of both sides are surprisingly similar. Or rather, human beings all have a similar tendency to ignore the other side of the story.
