John Kasich is still trying to be reasonable and logical with what appears to be the GOP’s long strange trip to nominate Donald Trump as the official GOP candidate for President in 2016.
Kasich is very far right, but unlike Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, he does seem to have some common sense and an understanding of how our government works. He also seems to understand that the founding fathers developed a system that, in theory, forces compromise.
But after years of insane rants from Republican party elites about the dangers of anything less than 100% adherence to right wing doctrine, a good number of those on the right have become scared out of the minds because of the coming homosexual, liberal, Muslim, gun stealing anti-American zombie apocalypse.
They’re convinced that their children are being indoctrinated into homosexuality. They’re convinced that the current or next liberal President is going to take away all their guns. They’re convinced that welfare queens have created our national debt. They’re convinced that illegal immigrants impose threats from terrorism, to crime, to stealing tax money, to ruining our schools. They’re convinced that we must continue to lower taxes on the rich before trickle down economics is going to work. They’re convinced that the vision of America that Republicans have is the only possible solution for a functional country.
The Republican party has worked hard to sell this fear. They’ve spent billions of dollars spreading the lies and brainwashing people that if you don’t vote Republican and insure the complete destruction of all things liberal and Democratic, America is going to succumb to a melt down. A kind of liberal zombie apocalypse.
And now we find “reasonable” Republicans like Mitt Romney and John Kasich trying to convince people that they shouldn’t go so far as electing Trump. They’re correct that Trump is dangerous. But they fail to recognize that now that the horse has left the barn, it is too late to close the door.
