1. The GOP is a perfect fit for evangelical christians who are already members of a cult.

I've been saying this about the GOP for years, but it's amazing to hear this from a sitting Senator.

2. I keep thinking of descriptive terms like "servile lackey", "mouth breathing rube" or just gullible

But it just does not seem to cover it. Cultist doesn't either. Calling them stupid does them a service. They are not slaves either.

I am not sure there is a word in the English language for what these people are.

5. Zealots driven by self rightousness can manage justify any evilness.

These people are akin to the inquisitionists who committed atrocious monstrous acts on their helpless victims and totally justified it by their belief that they were doing God's work. The rank and file have been convinced by the propagandists that the Democrats are Godless, un-Americans and grossly immoral beings that must be defeated. It is once again finds its justification in religious extremism and nationality. Its a double edged sword that we have been warned about time and time again. It is just a rebirth of fascism that made the same appeals and stroked the same imaginary fears.

4. Randi Rhodes calls it "The Cult 45". It certainly is similar to a brainwashed cult. Truth is just

what the "leader" says is true. This is a frightening state that our country has slipped into.

It's time to awaken his deaf followers.

Everyone we talk to should be aware of the change that our country has been going through under Trump, and the how we need to grab onto our courage and strive to make our country better for all. Not just the well connected and already wealthy.
