Again, I appreciate your response.
It’s not my purpose to rebut any of the insightful observations that have been offered here, merely to try to understand the paradox of this Republican domination given the stupidity and corruption of the party and its voters.
Please take your sarcasm and condescension and put them where the sun don't shine, or I'll have to conclude you're attempting to demonstrate that Republican stupidity we've been discussing.
You may be familiar with the 2017 Gallup poll indicating that both major parties are in the minority with 42% identifying as independents, indicating that neither political party relies on a simple majority of registered voters.
Yet you called the Republicans "ascendant"...why is that?
If my assumption is then incorrect and you do not believe that the Democrats defer from engaging in the same unethical tactics as Republicans, then that would make it more puzzling to me why the Republican party is dominant.
If you're intent on demonstrating that Republican stupidity, I'm afraid I can't help you. I'f you wish to act as intelligent as I know you are, we can continue the discussion.
If they both employ the same unethical tactics (and both, as you have allowed, are therefore corrupt) then there must be some additional reasons.
Both political parties have people in them who are corrupt, but please do let me know when the Democrats refused to vote on a presidents SC nominee for over a year and claimed it was the right thing to do. Do let me know in which states the Democrats have engaged in voter suppression. This why I say the Republican Party is corrupt, because they do corrupt things as a group.
You have pointed out that Republicans in general are stupid and so my earlier question remains unanswered:.....
You know what Forrest Gump said..."stupid is as stupid does"...I'm only going by what they say say and do...including here. Mostly I think Republicans are stupid because of Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and the ridiculous ingrates the Republicans have put in Congress like Louis Gohmert, Steve King and others too numerous to name. And the final reason is that Republicans keep voting these morons into office and do nothing to hold them accountable for their idiocy.
