Common Sense For Common People

“There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

One thing that I learned from traveling on the road for so many years….was that there is an average intelligence in this country. And much to my dismay, it is WAY lower than I would like to admit. The IGNORANT vote has the potential of being WAY larger than the well informed vote. The only safe guard up until now is that the IGNORANT voter is too IGNORANT to actually go VOTE!

Be scared….VERY SCARED if the IGNORANT VOTER can be mobilized into action. THEIR VOTE is JUST AS POWERFUL as an intelligent vote. Think about that one….hmmmm
Did I say SCARY!!!

I could live with ANY outcome as long as I felt that it was what the US population REALLY WANTED. Right now, I am not at all sure that people are voting from a well informed position. People are voting from an emotionally driven place that is not based upon the reality that faces us in the world today.

There should be some kind of test given BEFORE being allowed to vote….have to know how to spell your candidates full name, know who their vice presidential nominee is, know what their job is currently (prior to running), know what state they are from, etc…..knowing at least 3 policies that they stand for that the voter agrees with….blah blah blah….that would certainly thin the heard and produce a more targeted outcome based upon reality and intelligence.

YIKES! ….can you tell I am WORN OUT with this crap!
