We might as well face one terrible truth pertaining to the United States: a large number of the population are morons. Maybe not in a strict, clinical sense but certainly from a standpoint of how they actually live their lives. Fiscally irresponsible, sexually irresponsible and, in fact, just about irresponsible in every way you can imagine. And worse yet, many of these people vote.
That’s how President Obama was elected and how Hillary Clinton is even a contender. This segment of the population seems totally incapable of educating itself on truly important issues and then acting with wisdom. Maybe it’s time for the U.S. to die as a nation and be replaced by something else.
I’d hate to see that happen, but a nation is only as good as its people. From that perspective, the future looks pretty dark.
