Okay, so it’s been more than a year now with Barack Obama as president of the United States. There have been some good things, such as making adjustments to the insane Bush-era corporate tax-breaks, some broken promises, such as a complete avoidance of the topic of Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell, and you can decide either way what you think. That said, the right has lost their minds.
There are always those on the far end of either side, yes, but brushing this off as equivalent fringe groups is an act of desperate equivocation. It is becoming increasingly evident that there is about 25% of the population that is so crushingly uneducated and simply put, dangerously stupid. Take for example, this video,
It has affected politics. It has affected media. It has affected education. It has affected diplomacy. When you have a quarter of the population who are completely controllable yet utterly insane, you’re going to have problems.
So, for those who want to know. Obama is not a socialist, he’s not even liberal. The only thing killing America is the systematic undermining of the American science curriculum. And if you don’t want your tax dollars to go toward public health care because you trust the government less than corporations running it for a profit? You’re merely stupid. If you don’t want your tax dollars to go toward public health care because you don’t want to “pay for someone else’s problem” you’re a sociopath.
It’s the job of the still mentally competent to disparage those whose political opinion can be summarized into the words socialist, freedom, Jesus and guns for the harm they cause. It’s not a valid opinion to state talking points which are factually wrong. It’s not a valid position to state unsupported nonsense without backing. And it’s not a valid position that when the other side wins an election, it’s tyranny.
