People get the government they deserve.  If the Dem's, Independents and the apathetic don't turn out and vote then we will have government by the crazy for the wealthy.

It doesn't have to make sense because the government is by the people – by the people – by the people…

 …and the government reflects the populace – the majority. 

When a blatantly ignorant Tea Party candidate wins a seat in the Senate or Congress that is a reflection of that state – that represents the majority.

Fox News has a much larger following than their polar opposite MSNBC.   That mirrors our Nation. 

The Republicans blame everything on President Obama; I blame everything on religion that has institutionalizes ignorance and now holds a foothold in government.

As long as religion holds sway in this country – as long as states remove pages from text books and religious factions decide what can and cannot be taught – as long as ignorant people line up and vow allegiance to the loudest evangelist we will remain a country of the ignorant, for the powerful and by the manipulative.

Get used to it.
This is who we are.
Perhaps it is who we have always been.

  1. Humans have always been herd animals. Following the herd is what we do. It sure is easier than thinking for ourselves.

  2. Did you read that the Russians have eliminated over half of the approved textbooks for Russian schools. The approved texts are heavily edited, and incidentally, the publisher is very connected to Putin. Bad news, because this really affects the Russian publishing industry as well as the education system. But this is where the Republicans would take America. Look at the alliance Putin has made with the Russian Orthodox Catholic Church! The state religion and a religion of conservative intolerance. No wonder the Russians drink.

    1. They have rewritten Crimean History. File it under Fiction

  3. By the people...
    The Supreme Court decided that corporations are people too. Well they have civil rights anyway...close enough!

  4. You can't expect much my friend. Idiots vote and they have us outnumbered! ha ha ha go eat some pecan pie with a scoop of ice cream! life is short!!!!!

  5. Nipped over from your comment on phantsythat blog to have a look. I like your style of thinking (and that photo up at the top is awesome).
