Scott Walker has for two decades won primary elections by refusing to allow any Republican to outmaneuver him on the right.

2. It Isn't politics anymore

it's the brainwashing of those who vote for any "vile piece of shit" because they Believe and Trust their lies.

"They" have preyed upon the most vulnerable, played into their deepest fears and weaknesses-for profit and the Win!
In my opinion...of course.
