In their own words: GOP voters show why they probably shouldn’t be trusted with the vote

“Even if he were mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren’t they, and a little chance?”  — Former Republican Sen. Roman Hruska defending appointment of “mediocre” Judge Harold Carswell to the U.S. Supreme Court.
I will state right up front that I don’t know anyone who intends on voting for Donald Trump — or any other Republican for that matter — at either the primary or the national level.
Like Pauline Kael, who once said, “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon,” I too live a “special world” devoid of ALL-CAPS! flag-waving ‘Muricans. Or maybe they exist around me but they have the common decency to keep it to themselves — like Scientologists and pedophiles.
To say that the run-up to this GOP primary is a “half bubble off plumb” would be gross understatement.
We have never seen the likes of a Donald Trump on the campaign trail — making like Tom and Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby, smashing up “things and creatures” and then retreating “back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”
I, for one, have no idea what Trump’s endgame is or whether he is trapped by his success like Max Bialystock in The Producers, as Joe Scarborough once noted in one of his rare lucid moments.
So I guess Republican voters could be forgiven for not knowing whether to “shit or go blind,” as Zeno of Elea so puckishly put it in Parmenides. It’s in there, trust me.
Which brings us to the voters of Iowa and New Hampshire who are going to set the tone in the next couple of weeks.
As regards Iowa’s caucuses, we know one thing: they don’t mean jack.
Past two winners: Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee.
They’re more like the people you see at the track who bet on the horses depending on what colors the jockey is wearing that particular race — even if the horse is limping badly. Which is to say, yes, some people are thinking about voting for Carly.
there are a myriad of quotes in the rest of the article, with all the corrected press and exposure of republican lies and skulduggery that we are even talking about electing them.  among themselves yeah they are a family of rime against America and Americans.  but why the voters there is so much rebutted evidence of their attempts to steal and lie and step on we the people just to be able to continue all the above pretty much saying "go to hell" and their base seems to look forward to trip.

refusal to believe truth staring you in the eyes or just arrogantly blind and defending the current status because the thought of White privilege makes than think they are bullet proof turn around look at your past as recent as 2 mins ago what has republicans done for you or the country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I'm going to" is not a fix or a plan it's a  Narcissist's idea that they can accomplish all that just by being there but i have to ask are we to just put Trump outside the borders and let him have at it while keeping Megyn Kelly away???????
