The Zimmerman trial has actually clarified my view on how liberals come to their opinions

For a long time, there were many points where I honestly could not determine why a liberal might have an opinion, that I simply saw no way of actually justifying. Sure there were the simplistic arguments that they were emotionally driven so logic did not permeate. But that was never going to fly many of them seem to use a series of events type situation, so some form of logic is indeed at work, it is not pure emotion.

Now there is one component that still does not make sense, but that is completely psychological so easier to put to the side than process related stuff like how do you come to a mindset.

The missing piece is liberals simply make stuff up. Facts to them are something like imaginary friends to a child. They just appear and are as real as can be, though they came from nowhere.

Sure I often thought that, but the Zimmerman trial has with certainty made that more than some loose thought, it is now a fully substantiated and proven theory. There is no case that you can have a discussion with a lib, that they do not simply make things up. It is curious but it is there and irrefutable. You can see the same thing by the way with the all the scandals have been proven non-existent--hunh? Where did that come from?

Looking back this simple theory of imaginary friends/facts being essentially equal makes a lot of stuff make sense.
