How Stupid Is The American Electorate?

Let’s start with this Dictionary.Com definition of intelligence:

in·tel·li·gence

noun

1. capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity; aptitude in grasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings, etc.

Now I want you to rate the intelligence of the American electorate on a scale of 1 to 10. But, before you do that please consider this opinion poll I found at Hot Air  on what Americans think of Congress compared to other things.

When asked if they have a higher opinion of either Congress or a series of unpleasant or disliked things, voters said they had a higher opinion of root canals (32 for Congress and 56 for the dental procedure), NFL replacement refs (29-56), head lice (19-67), the rock band Nickelback (32-39), colonoscopies (31-58), Washington DC political pundits (34- 37), carnies (31-39), traffic jams (34-56), cockroaches (43-45), Donald Trump (42-44), France (37-46), Genghis Khan (37-41), used-car salesmen (32-57), and Brussels sprouts (23-69) than Congress.

Congress did manage to beat out telemarketers (45-35), John Edwards (45-29), the Kardashians (49-36), lobbyists (48-30), North Korea (61-26), the ebola virus (53-25), Lindsay Lohan (45-41), Fidel Castro (54-32), playground bullies (43-38), meth labs (60- 21), communism (57-23), and gonorrhea (53-28).

So, Americans like Congress better than Brussels sprouts but less than gonorrhea. Then, WHY IN THE HELL DO WE KEEP RE-ELECTING PEOPLE WE DON’T LIKE??? The American electorate has to be pretty stupid to do that, right? I’m feeling generous today so I am going to score them a 2.

Please keep your intelligence score for the American electorate in mind as we consider the second question in today’s title.

Would  Americans Vote For A Socialist State If Given The Chance?

Because America is a republic and not a democracy, our constitution does not allow for referendums at the federal level. But, what if it did? What if Americans were given the chance to decide once and for all the we do or do not want to be a socialist state? We have effectively been voting to become a socialist state in bits and pieces for decades, haven’t we? But, the problem is we never vote to pay for all the socialist programs and, as a result, America is over $16 trillion in debt. So, let’s imagine that today’s Americans were given a chance to vote on two questions in a national referendum to answer whether we want to be socialist and do we want to pay for socialism. Here are the two questions your humble observer has the American voters:

  1. America should have all the social programs that Sweden has.  (Everything under the sun)      Yes or No
  2. Americans should pay taxes like the Swedes do. ( 70%)        Yes or No.

Consider the intelligence score you gave the American voters, how do you think they would vote on the two referendum questions? My opinion is they would vote overwhelming YES on Question 1 and overwhelmingly NO on Question 2.
More debt anyone?

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Not So Trivial Pursuit

 

“The weirder you’re going to behave, the more normal you should look.” — P.J. O’Rourke

“These days, there are few few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA …” — Pravda (Americans, Never Give Up Your Guns)

Collectively, the modern American electorate may not be the dumbest group ever assembled, but they’ll do until the real idiots show up.  After all, what other drove of dimwits would hand a flame thrower to a pyromaniac then wonder why the house is suddenly ablaze?  What other swarm of simpletons would engage a lifelong highwayman to safeguard the treasury, then re-hire him once he’s cleaned out the vault? What other mob of morons would employ an inexperienced water colorist to paint the country’s future then wonder why the pigments smeared? Well, the Germans, maybe. Still, the results of our November election remain perplexing, baffling, inexplicable. If ballots were children, four years of non-stop abuse should have convinced any responsible court to place Obama’s in foster care.  Instead, the perpetrator has been rewarded with another term in which to continue his destruction of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  The man in the Oval Office may look normal — he’s anything but. Remember, without the uniform and jaunty death’s-head chapeau, Adolf Eichmann could have been mistaken for a dyspeptic bank teller; without the Killing Fields, Pol Pot could have passed as an itinerant noodle slinger in a second-rate Chinese take-out eatery; without the many bodies dumped in a lonely wood, Ted Bundy merely an outstanding exemplar of Young Republicanism.  And, without the support of the ignorant, the apathetic, and the hopelessly dependent, Barack Hussein Obama would be busy rounding up stray dogs in Cook County instead of destroying what remains of the American republic.

Obama Seizing Sole Authority for US Defense

Trivial PresidentIn an attempt to seize total control over national security and bypass congress, a frightening new step by the Obama Administration is coming into play. As noted in Friday’s Wall Street Journal in an op-ed by John Bolton and John Woo, a State Department advisory group that is run by former Secretary of Defense William Perry is advising that the U.S. and Russia both reduce nuclear weapons without a treaty, as a treaty would require ratification by Congress. This would allow Obama and his executive branch to unilaterally cut our nuclear weaponry and ignore the treaty clause of the Constitution. [Obama’s] step-by-step evisceration of the United States is not confined to its economic system but its national defense as well.

Obama Seizing Control of the US Military – Potential Cataclysm Ahead (Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal Blog)

Barack Obama has worked with pro-Moscow Marxists including Frank Marshall Davis and Alice Palmer, and pro-Cuban radicals like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, his entire life.

Their number one priority has always been the destruction of the US military, the only significant block remaining, to global revolution.

Now that the Davis/Palmer/Ayers/Dohrn protege has the reins of power, President Obama is working hard to destroy US military superiority, consciously or unconsciously, to the advantage of the Russia/China/Cuba/North Korea/Iranian/Islamic alliance

[…] If Obama is allowed to realize the Davis/Palmer/Ayers/Dohrn vision of a militarily impotent America, Americans will be faced with two very harsh choices.

Lay down your arms and give up your sovereignty to a United Nations world superstate. Or face the combined military might of Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, possibly Pakistan, Indonesia and Brazil, and several other countries… with hardly a friend in the world to come to your aid.  This won’t be a one or two front conflict. This will be a multi-polar, all out attack on the US homeland.

Americans need to wake up. And fast.
