Praise the Lord.
Kind of irrelevant to what I was saying, but I would say the tears were a very real manifestation of a psychotic break from reality, in which they think things are what they are because they will them to be a certain way, and when they were confronted with reality they have stubbornly denied it (''not my President'', etc...) to this very day. They cannot concede any legitimacy to Trump or his ''deplorables'' or it would mean the eventual failure of their ideology, a failure as complete as that of other ideologies in the recent past.
However since I personally am almost a Anarchist at heart, and hold liberty rather dear, to my mind both sides of your political mythology; ''Liberals'' and ''Conservatives'', are in fact all quite Liberal and Statist in a very modernistic and authoritarian way. Two sides of the same coin.
But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.
