Had a shocker convo with a life-long friend of mine today. This is someone I've known since I was a single-digit-aged child. She's an M.D. and double Ph.D. - a very book smart lady - but asleep at the wheel on the 'awake' front.
We've clashed INTENSELY for many years over my passion for candidate / President / post-President Trump, as well as had a tear-filled major falling out recently over her getting vaxxed, despite the countless mounds of info I'd provided to her about it.
Well, get this! She called me today, after not speaking for months, and she went on a tirade about how our country is totally falling apart at the seams. She rattled off a litany of Biden failures, such as getting involved in the Ukraine sitch - pulling the USA into a war with Russia, crazy inflation, gas prices, stock market collapse (she's probably losing mega bucks), border invasion, etc. - all without me saying a single word about ANY of it! She even said that she thinks Biden getting our country thrust into Ukraine is just to protect Biden's dirty laundry and corruption with his son. My jaw was on the FLOOR!
I just listened and let her share her revelations. I was already stunned by her sudden awakening about a lot of this stuff, but she wrapped up her tirade with the most pivotal conclusion. She said, "NONE of this would be happening if Trump was still in office." Then she even rattled off x/y/z things that were "so much better when Trump was the president." I was so happy to hear her revelations and spark of awakening, it nearly brought me to tears.
I kidded, "Well, I was gonna stay FAR away from politics talking with you, but gee, now maybe we can discuss stuff like this without clashing." She replied, "No, I WANT to - I want to know what you know and what's really going on." I in no way rubbed her face in anything or did any type of "I told you so" digs whatsoever. It was a purely positive, constructive, non-combative conversation for the first time in many years.
We're going to get together tomorrow for the first time in many months. I'm looking forward to hearing about what she's figured out and heard/seen that's turned her head around, as well as share info with her to fill in some gaps and answer her many questions, now that she is actually INTERESTED.
Just wanted to share a sprinkle of good news that I've personally seen one hardened, TDS Trump-hater who has actually snapped out of the trance, thus proving it that is ACTUALLY possible. =-)
