Great read!! Tips I might be able to use when conversing with my Trump-supporting friends and neighbors. Usually I, a Progressive who is literally surrounded by "conservatives," keep my silence out of fear of being belittled and/or yelled at (because this has actually happened to me in my small town) though perhaps this article will embolden me to speak out. Oh and by the way, one on the "other side of the fence" might argue, for the sake of argument, that us Democrat supporters have a "cultish mindset" as well. Just saying.
