we hear the republicans toss around the word Caliphate a lot but like every other grain of salt they latch on to and run tell it i don't think they really know what it means.
Caliphate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A caliphate (Arabic: خِلافة khilāfa) is a form of Islamic government led by a caliph (Arabic: خَليفة khalīfah pronunciation (help. · info))—a person considered a political and religious successor to the Islamic prophet, Muhammad (Muhammad ibn ʿAbdullāh), and a leader of the entire Muslim community.
Ted Cruz is so much more than a Tea Party Republican who believes that the best way to balance the budget is to get rid of the Departments of Energy, Commerce, Education, and Housing and Urban Development.

He will save additional funds by dismantling the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Corporation for Travel Promotion, the Legal Services Corporation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Humanities. Unsurprisingly, the American Spectator thinks this is a good plan, by golly.
But a good spend (on defense)-and-not-tax conservative is not all that Ted is. Which is fortunate because there simply aren’t enough tea partiers to elect a president. But if you combine them with the fundamentalist/evangelicals, the prospect brightens.
Perhaps you have heard of the cult of Dominionism, or Christian Reconstructionism. In brief, it’s a belief in a Christian caliphate which will battle the unbelievers at a place called Armageddon, located in Israel. Which, by the way, is why Cruz is such a staunch defender of Israel—Jews have to stick around so they can die in the final battle. Before that can happen though, it is necessary that they first create a theocracy here at home. According to Chris Hedges:
It fuses with the Christian religion the iconography and language of American imperialism and nationalism, along with the cruelest aspects of corporate capitalism.
Think Ayn Rand’s John Galt with a cross in one hand and an AR-15 in the other.
one thing i see as a problem for right wing voters they don't know who their real enemy is
they also don't recognize who it is that created this enemy
