Emotion creates a so-called Mob Mentality Effect on Political Decisions

My thoughts on this article in the Washington Post – Donald Trump’s appeal was just perfectly summed up by Chris Matthews

If emotion blinds the minds of those making political decisions it creates a so called “Mob Mentality” effect that will turn its face on the core values that unite our country and what it stands for….. . The media contributes to this emotion fortified mob mentality because it is the only place those influenced by this type of mentality uses to educate and fuel political decision making for themselves.

We need a president that rises above the emotionalized frenzy of mob mentality, refuses to utilize it and makes decisions based on our country’s core values for the greater good of each individual that makes up the whole of America. Donald Trump does not represent this country’s core values, Hillary Clinton does……

The core values Donald Trump supporters are turning their face on are…… “equality, justice, and freedom for all.” These core values apply to individuals of every skin color, sex, gender, ethnicity, culture and belief in our country. Only Hillary Clinton is for advancing these core values as president of the United States of America.

If we belief in and stand for the core values of America “equality, justice, and freedom for all,” then when making a decision of who to vote for that best represents “We the people” of the United States of America, we need to use theses core values as a part of the process. These core values should be used as a “mental filter” to see clearly through all the emotionalized bullshit promulgated by the media for making our decision. Then not voting for Donald Trump becomes evident by his actions and voting for Hillary Clinton becomes easy based on her proven track record and proposed agenda as president to support this country’s core values.
