Actually yes.

As back woods, moronic, inbred, and utterly stupid as that thought process is Those people deserve the right to vote for someone who may very well have the same back woods, moronic, inbred, and utterly stupid ideas as they have.

It is up the rest of the country to be lucid and tell them... umm no.

In ANY political system you are going to have fringe and extremes.

When they make up a majority(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fertility_and_intelligence) you wont be able to tell them no.
