Read up, Republicans

I am referring to the disturbing report of the recent Idaho Republican Convention.

We will never get rid of President Obama if the Republican Party leaders continue to display their ignorance. I strongly urge every one of them (and everyone in general) to read Dr. Ben Carson’s book “One Nation.”

If one of them has an IQ of 70 or more (and many of the delegates seem to fall short of that level), they cannot fail to learn some valuable lessons.
