The Republican party figured out in 2004 that fear can get even the dumbest of candidates elected, or in that case, re-elected. By exploiting the deaths of innocent people and making Americans believe they were next if a Democrat was elected, George W Bush was given free rein to wage war and destroy our economy.
In 2014, the Republicans took full advantage of the strategy again, this time using Ebola to draw petrified and uneducated buffoons out of the woodwork in a midterm cycle, knowing far too many Democrats stay home as it is. The result was a landslide for the GOP, who spent years doing nothing at all yet still managed to take control of both chambers of Congress.
This election cycle the fear is of ISIS, and even though our country faces much more difficult struggles at home and more Americans will be killed by right-wing terrorism, the imbeciles of the republican base are eating it up once again.
Bernie Sanders reminds them in this speech just what’s important in America today.
