Social pathologies are depressingly pervasive in the Republican-conrolled South. Thus Americans should be wary of any southern Republican offering to bring his values to the nation.
There was a time during the mid-1980s when many of America’s Soviet scholars asked themselves how a man possessing the moral fiber, education and stellar capabilities of Mikhail Gorbachev could possibly have risen through the political ranks of a thoroughly corrupt and bankrupt Soviet socialist system. Today serious Americans should be asking themselves whether it is even remotely possible that a Republican Gorbachev could emerge from the socially diseased American South.
