I'm afraid you were right when you said "dumbed down." A large percentage are totally uninformed and make their important political decisions based on a sound bite here or there, or worse yet, don't even realize the importance of voting.Its very frustrating to have endured Socialism at its worst and to
encounter innocent good Ammericans,who on sitting on the Helter '
Skelter slide to its gaping jaws..Americans it seems are not at
all concerned about morphing into yet another failed Socialist
When I some times relay what really takes place,with Govts that
are dedicated to complete and utter control of the people aand
Broadcasts to the people,tsking away any form of free thinking
as a threat to their Powers,and who always crack down on any
resistance to it? How many times has Obama and his comrades
attacked Fox News for example? Acutally forcing their ideals
on a private Corp,getting rid of Beck,threating Hannity and
Oreilly?? Yet the dumbed down American public lets it slide?
This is all I can do,warn not to get enamoured of being
a Puppet!! If Americans seriously want to be a carbon
copy of Greece,Spain,Italia,Uk,where I have personally
witnesses the downfall of..Then so be it..Its Anti USA
but maybe they are BORED??????
It all started with the decline of educational standards, taking the requirements down to the lowest denominator, rather than bringing as many out of ignorance as possible. Especially regarding history, I fear.
I didn't even LIKE history when I was in school, but I learned enough to be scared to death of socialism and communism. Most kids today just think it's cool to have Che on their shirt because they know they don't like "rules."
