So Many Questions The laws of Logic no longer apply

http://www.redstate.com/diary/TylerJoseph/2016/05/07/many-questions/

The fact that Donald Trump is now the presumptive GOP nominee for president is not easy to grasp. Many of us had very high hopes for a strong conservative nominee in 2016. At the very beginning of the primary process, the voters were presented with a wide array of 17 candidates, many of them possessing exceptional talent and strong conservative principles. In an unfortunate twist of fate and turn of events, one billionaire real estate mogul with no governmental experience is the last man standing. The party leaders of the GOP are now demanding that Republican voters fall in line behind the the same man who presented himself as the very epitome of a rogue, populist, “anti-establishment” candidate. We are being forcefully told to accept a New York liberal as the standard-bearer of the Republican party.

Something isn’t adding up here.

 Now, I haven’t personally witnessed or paid attention to all that many Republican presidential primaries. I’m only 19 years old, and I only just started paying attention to politics during my latter years of high school. That being said, I know enough about American political history to know that this year’s primary is something of an anomaly. And, quite honestly, the way things have played out these past few months just don’t seem to make all that much sense. I’ve given a lot of thought to this primary season and the events that have occurred. Here are a few questions that have been floating around in my head lately. Feel free to take a shot at answering them. (Hint: I have a feeling that the answer to most of them is, simply, “People are stupid.”)

1. Why was Trump not immediately tossed to the side at the beginning of the primary? * * *

2. Why were so many far-right “conservative” icons so eager to endorse Trump, even while there were far more principles candidates in the race? * * *

3. Why, for the love of all things good and holy, did Kasich stay in the race for so long? * * *

4. Why can’t Trump supporters be reasoned with?  * * *

5. Why did Indiana voters choose to bow to Trump, when they had a clear shot at giving Cruz a good chance at the nomination? 

The laws of Logic seem to have been suspended during the primary season. By the looks of it so far, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be reinstated for the general election either. Let’s just hope it’s not a permanent thing.
