Diane Lee Premium MemberFor at least the past two generations, Republicans have depended on the Religious Right types to support them, and they have been very dependable, despite the fact that very few of them have enough money that they were not working against their own best interests. For them, it didn’t have anything to do with economics, because they were convinced that the Republicans believed in the Family Values agenda- anti-gay, anti-abortion, etc. Somehow they managed not to notice that once Republicans were elected, they completely ignored that agenda, or make it a trade-off for securing the goals of the 1%ers who were controlling the Republican party. In fact, they rarely mentioned those issues unless they were using them as a bargaining chip—- until the next time they needed volunteers, when it again became their mantra.After at least 40 years, the Religious Right finally figured out that the Establishment Republicans were playing them for fools, which created the Tea Party, and they are continuing to prove they are fools by voting against anyone who isn’t an Establishment Republican. You really can’t blame them for hating the establishment, but the fact that they are considering Donald Trump, who has the Family Values credentials of a tomcat, is just not a logical alternative.•
