  7. This is the whirlwind Republican's are reaping. Since their '60's "Southern Strategy" to successfully turn the historic Democrat (Dixiecrat) South Republican in less than a decade, on the Republican promise to only give the new '60's civil rights and voting rights acts an enforcement wink, Republican's have been cynically recruiting the nations intolerant and ignorant. Finally to the old angry rich establishments horror these intolerant ignorants have become the Republican Party rank and file majority and elected their manic insecure flimflam Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Joe Walsh, former and ONE term Congressman is the poster boy for the new Republican majority, an ignorant vicious bigot who fortunately was swept out of office after one embarrassing term by the Democrat war hero Tammy Duckworth.
