Written by Karlyn Borysenko

The focus of my life since 2012 was to bring sanity back to the work environment, because I believe we spend so much time at work that we shouldn’t be miserable. I have an MBA and a PhD in psychology, specializing in industrial/organizational psychology. I have my own practice - Zen Workplace - where I integrate organizational psychology and positive psychology with mindfulness techniques to help make work better. I’m also the Chief Science Officer of RallyBright, where I work to build high-performing, resilient teams.But that’s not how most people know me. Most people know me as a (now former) Democrat of 20 years who went to a Trump rally. The article I wrote about my experience went viral and garnered 3 million views in the first week. I was featured by Fox News, Glenn Beck, Dennis Prager, and on dozens of radio shows, podcasts, and YouTube videos.


  1. The lowest unemployment and crime in American history is what counts, if you not happy with that you must want a free ride. The Democrats have continued to close the economy during the pandemic practicing 1918 ideas. Falsely reporting numbers just for politics. I have not seen one racist thing with Trump. He denounced extremist group on both sides but what cut from the media.

  2. One of the things this highlights is how true it is that there are some hatefully closed minded people still on the right. I think because of how in-your-face insane the left currently is, their counterparts on the right are regularly overshadowed to the point that many people think they don’t exist.
    Seriously, who gets upset at a person for promoting less divisiveness among our citizens? Some of these internet junkies must get off on division and hate.

  3. I understand how some people can be reluctant. If they have kids it’s much scarier to risk your livelihood. That’s the only time I understand. Being beholden to “things” is not a real reason.

  4. Speaks out against the lib crazies for a few months
    Calls people (who have fought against the Lib crazies for over a decade) cowards

    Neo didn't wake up from taking the Red Pill and immediately start calling the people that were born outside of the Matrix cowards.

    Let's see how you feel in 15 years after constantly arguing with nonsense every day with people who will not change their mind NO MATTER WHAT. It isn't worth it. You have to pick your battles and make sure to speak up at the voting booth. It isn't healthy to fight and live in the negativity 24 hours a day for years and years. It causes serious mental fatigue.

    The Vast majority of the Media, Higher Education, Hollywood, Big Tech, and many other facets of the world are AGAINST US.

    Welcome to the right side of fight, now focus your energy on who the real enemy is.

  5. Nah I’m good, I’ll stay quiet. “You’ll get another job” is just as bullshit argument as the millennials recommending people to “learn to code”. You guys wanna bark at each other, go ahead. I’m glad you have a business where public image isn’t a showstopper. Many people don’t .

  6. I understand where you are coming from to an extent, Karlyn, but just because not all Trump supporters are racist or evil does not mean Trump is doing this country any good. In fact, his divisiveness and hate speech has severely hurt this country and led to an immense amount of suffering. Also, just because some of the left is acting hateful for the sake of political correctness does not mean most leftists are like that. Your old friends may have been intolerant of your right to have an opinion, but that says nothing about the left ideology as a whole, which to me is about making progress to end systematic oppression towards minorities which the existence of is so blatant that I truly hope you are aware of it.

    I agree that the left-wing media exaggerates things and at times it can be a bit cringe, but I've realized that them doing that is honestly a necessity at this point to combat the intolerant right-wingers who spread propaganda on a far greater scale and in far more disgusting ways (FOX news is one example of this, there are many others). There are so many Americans who are either uneducated, have an evidently very low IQ, or were not educated properly to see the bigger picture. Can you blame left-leaning media for sensationalizing things a bit if it means getting the point across to all these incredibly dumb individuals?

    I implore you, please stop using your platform to help Donald Trump and the right-wingers. I realize you may not agree with them on everything, but helping him get re-elected would be a disaster for our country. If you do continue on this path of shaming the left when most of them are not guilty of what you are claiming, only a select few that make our side look bad, then you are giving the impression that you are doing this out of spite for the left and I sincerely hope you will think about how you will look back on these decisions, say, 5 years down the line. Ask yourself if It's really worth it. Again, most leftists and democrats are decent, hard working people who are fighting for systematic change to ensure equal opportunities for all and end injustices toward minorities. Trump will not help with this; his rhetoric will make it worse as the past 4 years have made it clear that it already has (i.e. the Texas shooting, the Gilroy shooting, and countless accounts of police brutality that have lead to countless unnecessary deaths). These are all instances very obviously enabled by Trump's hateful rhetoric (the liberal media doesn't even need to "lie" about this rhetoric I am mentioning, all anyone has to do is pay close attention to any of Trump's speeches at this rallies; it's not that hard).

    You are right, there are many Trump supporters that are not evil (just misinformed IMO), but that is hardly a reason to vote for him this November. Think of how he is trying to dismantle the checks and balances in the country to gain more power (the Portland protesters getting taken away by federal agents HIGHLY suggests this). Think of how much longer it will take for minorities to have equal footing in the face of institutionalized discrimination if Trump stays in power and keeps enabling Neo-Nazis (his tweets about "good people on both sides" make this very clear). Just to be clear, there is no such thing as a "good" confederate, or a good Nazi. If someone is a member of these groups, they have chosen to align themselves with hate and are BY DEFINITION evil. Some can be redeemed if they have been brainwashed from a young age and find a way to see the errors in the ways of the group they associate with, but this does not happen by enabling and refusing to call out this ideology. I have been a strong leftist since Trump was elected (I was previously a slightly left moderate) because I saw firsthand how hateful the right-wingers can be and how Trump enables them. However, I still support free speech because I see the bigger picture and believe that people can all get along if we cleanse these alt-right ideologies and learn to all love instead of hate. Trump is clearly not the person for this; he has proven time and time again that he is egotistical, selfish, negligent, irresponsible, and cruel. None of these impressions are from the media; it's all been hearing him talk verbatim and thinking critically. Please, I beg you again; use you platform for good causes, not for this.

  7. Pay No attention to the #Haters they are pissed that you're an independent free thinker, they envy you! I have always taught my kids "If someone doesn't add something to your life, don't let them subtract from your life ??????

  8. I do think it’s funny that the converted like Tim Pool, Rubin etc that are bring energy and helping to light a fire under the Republican to be more vocal and be braver. I for one appreciate it. Heavens TRUMP was a Democrat and I think it’s his unapologetic out spoken nature that is helping the conversation be more open.

  9. As someone who has known Trump personally for the past 30 years I wouldn’t trust him to look after a plastic garden nome. To be fair I know Bush jr. and Clinton and wouldn’t trust either of them not to take their cut of a child’s peanut butter sandwich. The simple fact that the president is decided by a popularity contest and not by qualifications is mind bendingly stupid. We need better leadership all around. Don’t let conformation bias lead you into group think. Both political groups are logic traps that turn people with slightly different opinions into enemies. Don’t get sucked in. There is no such thing as a Conservative or Liberal. Just a bunch of people with different perspectives based on lived experiences and ignorance. The sportification of politics will tear a country apart. Fight it.

    BTW, Prager is shady as F***, be careful.

  10. We need a new name for liberal, democrats, and republicans and anyone in-between who have all come to the same conclusions and have enough common sense to see all the bullshit on every side.

  11. Most People not all but Most,when Your Young and dont know much Or have many Wordly Experiences!,lean towards more liberal ideas and policies, but when they get older and more Wiser,become more center right,and More Conservative!,but unfortunately not Everyone goes down this path of Enlightening!,Just Wish it didn't take so long for the ones who do!

  12. I am old enough to remember when people said and meant. "We'll just have to agree, to disagree" I'm glad you didn't take your Pepper Spray, I had mine at a President Clinton appearance, they took my pepper spray and I never got it back.

  13. Kaitlyn, you would like former NPR CEO Ken Stern's book and interviews, Republican Like Me, How I Left the Liberal Bubble and Learned to Love the Right

  14. Good work, Karlyn! More people should vote only after carefully studying the issues. Don't listen to gossip and slogans shouted by enraged protesters. Make sure you know the facts about the major issues so you can back up your political views.
