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.
