Excerpts from an article about Obama. This is what happens when you interview “average” Americans.
Of Obama, Duser said: “I’m not crazy about voting for a colored guy, but that’s not why I don’t support Obama. I’m not prejudiced. I just like Hillary.”
A couple tables over, Jean Fetterman, a foster grandparent, said of Clinton: “Oh, I love her. She’s a very intelligent person, and she has her husband who went through this.”
She scoffs at the idea of voting for Obama: “I don’t want to be a Muslim!” She looks dubious when told Obama is Christian. “Then why did he go see what’s-his-name over in Iraq, that Lama?”
She isn’t clear about whom she means. She may have seen a photo of Obama wearing traditional clothing during a visit to Africa. “I don’t care what color he is, I don’t care if he’s pink,” she said. “I don’t think he’s got the same education Hillary has, and he’s so young. He’s arrogant, too.”
I’m too angry to write right now. These fucking mouthbreathers make me violent. I want to shake these people until the stupid falls out.
Listen very carefully. Our government isn’t causing our country to fail. That’s an illusion. It’s these people. They are the reason America is falling. You can’t have a quality republic if the people are too ignorant to participate. The republic will look like its people, and that’s the problem. It does.
Don’t ever blame the government unless you advocate a government style capable of doing what it takes to maintain a minimum level of quality within a population. See Finland, Sweden, Norway. Without that we have guaranteed outcome — the stupid (see quotes above) will destroy the whole. It’s simply not possible for the ignorant to outbreed the educated and have a positive outcome within a democratic society.
Case in Point: more people in America believe Jesus will return within their lifetimes than believe in evolution. In the year 2008. This country is, without a doubt, finished.:
