" We Can't Be the Stupid Country Anymore. " -  Trump

Well, voting for him would certainly secure that distinction for us.  

Not that he's entirely wrong -- we can't assume that the world is going to do the right thing -- if it did, Sanders would be in a much stronger position, and Trump would be hawking newspapers on a streetcorner.   We have to see the world clearly, as it is, not as we want it to be.  We have to push forward, against a lot of obstacles.  We won't always win.  But we can make progress.  

Having him even running is as strong a vote for stupidity,  and against progress, as I can think of,  at the moment.  But we like stupidity, right? Keeps us docile.

I imagine that there are Republican leaders who feel the same way. Will this teach us a lesson? Probably. But it won't be the one we like.
