I'm still standing with my view that the current runaway popularity of Donald Trump among Republican voters, 15 months ahead of the election, is just an infantile act of fury, from a group of people who have been told ever since Ronald Reagan that government is nothing but a crooked scam to rip them off, and that if it didn't exist, they would all be rich by now. The Republican party has created a monster, and now it can't keep it in its cage- at least for the time being. But if the last eight or so Republican Presidential choices indicate anything, when it comes down to it, these people are going to have the Republicans' rich backers once again cram down their throats a candidate that will do the bidding of the likes of the Koch Brothers and the Waltons, at which point, as they say "Democrats fall in love; Republicans fall in line."
Right now, that candidate, in my perhaps worthless opinion, is still strongly likely to be Jeb! with the nauseating Scott Walker an outside possibility if the Kochs decide to spend a significant part of their billion dollar war chest on the Republican primaries. I don't think that is going to happen, however. The difference between Jeb! and Walker isn't all that great, and it pales in comparison to the lure of having a Republican in the White House in 2017, to make permanent the corporate corruption of the Supreme Court, destroy Social Security and Medicare, and to start a couple of highly profitable wars in the process.
By the way, have you ever seen a greater example of denial in the history of mankind, than that involving the American voters who seem to actually believe that if the Republicans control Congress and the White House, they will not destroy Social Security and Medicare?
