The Republican presidential race has been filled with a whole lot of stupidity that has probably left you shaking your head. If you have watched any of the debates, you have probably said,”How in the hell are these people serious candidates?!”
The answer is simple: The Republican Party’s base is filled with low-information voters who have no idea that their candidates are lying.
Seriously, it is a proven fact that the less educated a person is, the more likely they are to vote for a right-wing candidate. This is one of the many reason the GOP is so eager to screw around with textbooks in red states and oppose free college education. They know that if they can keep the masses stupid, they have a better chance of survival. The front-runners in the Republican primary prove that this tactic is working for them.
Unfortunately for the GOP, it isn’t enough. We are raising a generation of new voters who are inclusive and eager for an education. The hate-filled ideals that have flourished in the Republican Party for so long, are no longer socially acceptable. That is our light at the end of the tunnel.
