The more I know about what's likely to happen in this coming election, the more disgusted I become.
Americans have the lowest science and math test scores in the industrialized world and we're demonstrating our incapacity in our political system.
For example, the folks in charge of the current pitiful excuse for the US government failed to protect the American public in the most incompetent mismanagement of national security in the history of the nation. Bush and CRAP were so busy packing their pockets and "reforming" the tax code to benefit the scumbags they represent that they were totally surprised by the fact that there are people out there who would love to do major damage to this country. There were intelligence warnings flying in all directions and the Bushies ignored their job because they were all geared up to rape and pillage the economy, the public education system, and wipe out the middle class.
The military was equally busy double-dipping, saluting itself, and wasting time and resources and, when it was finally called upon to protect American citizens. Our military, especially the Air Farce, was so incredibly impotent that the task fell to the passengers of a hijacked airplane to commit suicide to protect Washington DC. That same military drones failed to put an end to the Taliban in Afghanistan, to find Osama bin Laden, or to make a reasonable effort to secure the nation's boarders from terrorists. If these folks had been in charge of a corporation's internal security, they would have been fired, blacklisted, and publicly humiliated in the national media. Being government deadbeats in a nation of sheep, they have distracted the public eye by pretending an invasion of a tiny, starving third world dictatorship has something to do with national security. That tactic would only work in a country where the public eye is connected to a very tiny public brain.
After failing miserably at the job they were assigned, Bush and CRAP have dismantled the Constitution and Bill of Rights as quickly as possible. The very freedoms they pledged to protect are the first freedoms they chose to eliminate. In the interests of "national security," the folks who couldn't protect a goat from a poodle are turning the United States into a replica of the old Soviet Union.
With this background, the average American Joe and Joan are telling pollsters that they are going to vote for Bush and CRAP because they think Bush will better protect the country from terrorists. This is the same logic that says "fight fire with fire." If you think setting your bedroom on fire to slow down a kitchen fire is a smart tactic, then you are the kind of voter the Republicans are hoping to see at the polls; really dumb voters.
They are offering us a nancy-boy, cheerleading frat brat who hid behind his daddy's skirts to evade the draft, was overcome by fear at having to fly office flowers in the rich kids' branch of the National Guard. A twerp so cowardly that he went AWOL to keep from having to flunk a physical because he couldn't disguise the layer of coke dust powdering his nose. The little feller is totally incapable of providing a strong national security. Impossibly unlikely. But dumbass Americans who can't do basic math or comprehend simple logic are unlikely to figure this one out before the rest of the world is unable to tell us from the other bad guys.
Yeah, I'm disgusted. This is a pitiful time to be an American. We're too dumb to breathe and there is no sign that we're likely to get smarter in the next few generations. I suppose that means we're about to suffocate.
