How Stupid are American Voters ?--- Very!

Original Article

Posted By: abuela10, 4/1/2021 4:32:54 AM

Perhaps stupid is not the right word. Gullible is not right either. It's really hard to pinpoint the main reason behind the disastrous state of our country but the cold hard fact is that many Americans have fallen for two of the biggest hoaxes perpetrated by the left , the media and corrupt politicians. It's too simple to blame the voters of any particular party when the main culprits are the individuals who just can't be bothered with politics. They don't want to get involved so they don't vote yet they complain when their taxes go up or their civil rights are taken away

I believe that lazy is the word you are looking for. Preparation for voting is simply to check the letter after the candidate's name.

It is difficult to over estimate the subtle drumbeat of propaganda that has come from our media and pop culture for decades. Now it seems so obvious, they have dialed it up to 11. The lies are woven into everything--books, movies, and particularly the news. Children are brainwashed daily in the public schools. They have created and nurtured division, they have demonized free thinkers. If you question the status quo you are insulted and sneered at as a conspiracy theorist. People regard you as a nut in their smug stupidity and ignorance. Add all that to the relative comfort that most of us have known all our lives. We have been programed, almost all of us, to watch programs-wasting much of our time observing instead of thinking and doing. This is where the laziness #1 speaks of comes in, we sit in front of our televisions and escape the horrid reality that surrounds us. Yet, most do nothing. Those of us with a clue never thought they would be so successful, we underestimated the power of this endless onslaught. It may well be too late.

Alicia is my sister from another mister. I was taught to think by my wonderful teachers but that was then and this is now. Most teachers just rant the latest woke stuff and the press reinforces it. I never wanted to live my old age under totalitarianism but the current crop seems to combine Chairman Mao and Pol Pot and we know how that turned out.

Trump won in a landslide even though the media lied about everything all day, every day, so maybe the voters are not stupid after all. The real question is how corrupt and treasonous is the deep state media?

The Left could have in no way pulled this off without first changing our education system into perhaps the most corrupt and dishonest piece of Schiff to be found anywhere on the planet. Ignorance is’s what keeps the Dems in control of everything.

The majority of people willingly surrender their most critical decision making to authority figures. When that authority figure has wide acceptance, you are protected from the responsibility of making the wrong choices. Executives hire top end consultants to tell them exactly what they want to hear so that if things go sideways, it wasn't their fault. Just watch how fads take off like wild fire in industry as if the holy grail that eluded all previous generations has finally been found. When everyday Americans voted for traditional founding "conservative" values, most were doing so because they accepted the popular "authority" that at the time espoused constitutional principles. Since our following wasn't intellect based but was as sheep, we were easily led astray. Step by step we stood by as our constitution was eroded following the leaders, the authority figures not the well thought out ideas and ideals embodied in the constitution. Go back to psyc 101 and reexamine the Milgram experiment as well as the various studies that have had the same result.

What is most astounding, and was during Obama as well, is the number of JEWISH voters who let desert for anyone Black, no matter the qualifications, and later their hatred of Trump supersede all else and thus voted for a semi senile man who envisions himself as the next FDR, right down to holding meetings with historians to find out how to do it. ( I was a Trump voter and unless someone better comes along will be again, but the reasons I have reservations on the ex President is not his behavior, which can be egregious, but the fact that he waged a personal vendetta against the Gov. and AG of Georgia and is pretty much responsible for us losing those two Senate seats as a result, and now we are at the mercy of Biden & Co. who are DESTROYING this country.). I watched Biden LIE once again on tv last night re: water to voters in Ga. and poles closing at 5 p.m., both of which have been debunked or given 4 Pinocchios. But the Press doesn't call him on this, and the voters in this article dankly bother to find out. Lazy is right!

Yeah, the msm and a corrupt political culture brainwashed the masses. November 3rd proved that. Alinsky's rules for radicals worked this time. Electronic technology has out-run the human condition for good. What we think, when we think, how we think, where we think is now carefully controlled by technology and artificial intelligence thanks to big tech. We have allowed ourselves to become electronic zombies. Have you seen the film, "The Social Dilemma" for a glimpse of what is being done to our young people?

I count myself amongst the stupid because I trusted the "republicans" I voted for (but holding my nose for Romney & McCain). Still, most of us believed that "republicans" were for We the People.To our peril, believed and we were duped. Many Christian churches have also been corrupted by leftism.Conservative Christians have been mocked and canceled. It hasn't helped that people have fallen away from God and from Jesus and from universal truths. Now it's "your truth" that matters. And here we are... facing CCP /Apartheid freedom stealing passports .Covid is the means to the end of ultimate control. The 2020 election was brazenly stolen from POTUS Trump and from We the People.

It was pretty simple how the GOP lost both the Senate runoff elections in Georgia during the tough pandemic driven times. The leftist Democrats were telling the Georgia electorate that if their two candidates won their elections that the Democrats would gain control of the US Senate and they would then send most everyone a $2,000.00 stimulus check. While at the same time the Republican Leader of the US Senate was telling the electorate that if they voted for the two Republican candidates that the Republicans would retain control of the Senate and would send most anyone a $600.00 stimulus check. If you were a low information and apolitical voter in Georgia financially hurting because of the affects of COVID who would you vote for? In the end the Democrat stimulus check amounted to $1,400.00. No doubt there was a lot of apprehension among the Republican constituencies in Georgia as to the result of the November election about the integrity of the Georgia election laws, and the responses of some elected Georgia Republicans to the suspected irregularities that occurred concerning the election result, and thus stayed home rather than go out and vote during the Senate runoff elections. Both of those factors show why the Republican Party has been called the stupid party for so long.

Never thought I would live to see the day that an ignorant apathetic American population would willingly, adopt and elect, a government dedicated to the following proposition. We the People of the United States, in Order to destroy a perfect Union, forego Justice, accept domestic violence, defund the common defense, promote the general Welfare State and secure perpetual debt to ourselves and our Posterity, do relinquish and destroy the Constitution for the United States of America. We are now ruled, as opposed to governed, by a senile President and a radical Socialist Congress that has ignored the Constitution and rules by Executive order. The time has come to defund the government. Those of us paying the bills must stand up and take back our country, if it is not already too late. “The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency,” Vladimir Lenin, leader of the 1917 Russian Revolution Today the presses are running 24/7 in order to fund the Government, the money supply has increased by 25% since the first of January, and the dollar, backed by nothing, is falling in value. Can hyperinflation be far behind?

Oh where to start... It is stupidity, but there is a reason for it. We have been dumbed down, indoctrinated, manipulated, and brow beaten. The forces that took down Trump are the same forces that have been working against society for decades. We are under assault and it starts in childhood. Our children are being taught the world is doomed because of Climate Change and Pandemics. Our children are being told to consider whether or not they are gay at a young age. Now to make matters worse they are being asked to consider if they are the wrong gender. On top of all that our children are being taught that they are either victims or abusers. What are our children suppose to think of all this? With so much time being spent on things like this, are our children even being taught the necessary skills to thrive in life? Many children grow up knowing nothing other than PC, and it shapes their lives. Its child abuse. Parents might be able to protect their children, but that is difficult as authority is taken away from the family, and also have fulltime jobs that take them away from their families. If you survive childhood, you are still under PC assault. It hits you every time you turn on the TV or get on the internet. It hits you whenever you interact with friends and family. It hits you in the workplace. It hits you when you socialize in public. It makes one want to limit how much they interact with society because its easier than dealing with difficult people every day. One becomes a loner which is wrong. And then there are our elections. When your choices are Obama, McCain, and Romney, we have all been had. How did garbage like them rise to the top? The answer is the same forces that have been assaulting society day in and day out. We finally elect a real leader capable of governing in Trump, and look what they did to him. They caused a pandemic! How insane is that? That is the nature of the forces working against us. To get rid of Trump, they installed a corrupt incapable senile fool like Biden. The forces against us are global and they are evil. They care about nothing but themselves. They have no regard for life or law. They only want power, control, and wealth. And they are in control. Don't know how to stop them because they seem to be unreachable.

During the 2016 election season Hillary admitted on TV that the democrat voters are stupid. You would think that an insult like that would make most of them switch parties or at least start researching what is truth, but no, she was right because they still push for dem candidates and the idiocracy of the dem platform. And #3, and the snake Pence to your list. He had a chance to save the election and chose not to.

Yes, How stupid are American voters? Maybe 80 million American voters voted for Biden and his HO in 2020. In a recent pole more that 52% of American college seniors said that they would prefer communism. If Lenin and his ugly, angry wife came to America today, the college seniors would welcome them with open arms! In 1922 Lenin shipped millions of helpless Russians to freezing Arctic Gulag.

A lot of non-politically active Democrats vote Democrat because their parents and grandparents did. Not bad people, not stupid by any means, they live conservative lives, but they are 100% ignorant of how the political winds have shifted over the last few decades. The Republican base (excluding the GOPe politicians) is not comprised of "the rich" (and the Democrat Party has now become the corrupt party exclusively for the benefit of the rich and privileged, media, big corporations and academia. Country Class vs. Ruling Class indeed

As always, Alicia Colon is right on the money. But, I totally disagree with the headline. American voters are NOT stupid. They came out in droves and voted for Donald J. Trump. They voted for Republicans to give back the house to Republicans and they voted to keep the Senate. Trump's landslide election and many of the Congressional and a few of the Senate (John James being one) were stolen. We all, including our beloved Rush Limbaugh, were prevented from discussing the stolen election. Investigations were thwarted and judges refused even to look at evidence that had accumulated. The January 6 so-called riot was planned, and executed at the precise time that Senator Ted Cruz, who has never lost a case before the Supreme Court, was about to reveal all of the evidence of the stolen election. We see the speed at which the Left is changing our country. In less than 1.5 years we are now fully in the throes of totalitarianism, with people still locked down and prevented from seeing family and friends as fascistic health IDs are on the way. And the speed with which this is all happening is directly related to the violent suppression of counteracting the stolen election. If the stolen election narrative had gotten any traction, ANY, then doubts about the legitimacy of the Biden regime and the houses of Congress reversing the gains of Trump would have affected the Left's ability to ram through this destructive agenda. Imagine for just a moment, how difficult it would have been for the Biden regime, or should I more correctly say, Obama 3, had Rush Limbaugh, while he was alive, been able to talk day after day about the evidence of the stolen election? He was very careful not to even hint at the stolen election. Imagine Donald J. Trump, being allowed to speak day after day about the evidence of the stolen election. If a full throated discussion of the stolen election had taken place I believe we would not be as far down the Left's destructive road, as we are today. No, the American voters are very, very wise. We just don't have the power, at present to counteract the Left's enormous power as well as slow down the Great Reset. This has all been planned and executed beautifully.

I agree that leaving the Paris Accord proved the tipping point for the NWO demons. I quite enjoyed the Trump years for his valiant attitude and because since I worked I became wealthy just as many of you did. However, Alicia Colón misses the point that the election was stolen using voting machine algorithms mimicking exactly the 2010 census although the population was 10 years older. Go to and watch yesterday´s documentary with physicist Dr. Frank. Machine programs stole the vote in every county of every state. And then the Supreme Court refused to hear 18 states plus Texas. They robbed the election from US. Biden and HO are illegitimate.

Former president Donald Trump emerged from 38 days of self-enforced silence for a lengthy speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, that was frequently interrupted with boisterous applause and chants from an adoring, mostly white and older crowd. He was spot-on in his indictment of the five-week-old Biden administration, accusing the new president of lying about his "radical far-left" agenda during the campaign. Predictably, he also slammed the "fake news" for what he said was their assistance in covering up that agenda.

I am the author of the bestselling book "TRUMP RULES." My book identifies the top 10 rules that made former President Donald Trump one of the greatest winners in world history in business, branding, real estate, celebrity, television, publishing and politics. Trump is the only person in world history to reach the pinnacle of all of those fields. And the only person to become both a billionaire and president of the United States. It's not a bad resume. Many critics think Trump's winning streak ended with a presidential loss. I disagree. I know the man. I understand the man. I know what comes next. It may be Trump's greatest chapter yet.  Correction*

Recently Michael Brown wrote a column titled Neither Never Trump Nor Forever Trump in which he urges Trump supporters to move on. Another pundit, Robert W. Merry of The American Conservative writes "But now Republicans must push beyond their disgraced and deeply flawed standard-bearer to remake themselves under new leadership." In the House, a Democrat representative spoke about the necessity for the second impeachment to ensure that Trump will never run for office again. The mistake that all of these pundits make is assuming that we Trump supporters(snip) No way do we want him to run again. Why not? We do not consider him a disgrace. We love him.

To Reopen America, FDA

After weeks of being holed up inside, hundreds of millions of Americans eagerly await guidance from their governors and the Trump administration on when they can return to work. Unfortunately, a vaccine appears too far off to serve as a prerequisite for reopening the economy. This has prompted officials to call for extensive national testing efforts to identify individuals free of coronavirus. But these efforts require Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of rapid at-home testing, and the agency appears to be dragging its feet. Now more than ever, Americans need a responsive FDA that puts patients’ lives over half-measures and unnecessary risk aversion.

President Trump clearly overstated the case when he asserted that the president’s authority in the current crisis is “total.” The fact is that the Constitution doesn’t grant total authority to any branch of the government. It looks, though, at least to us, as if Mr. Trump was set off by news that some states were entering into regional pacts to plan the reopening of their economies. If that is what set Mr. Trump off, it’s easy to see why. Mr. Trump and all other officers and legislators and judges of the federal and state governments are bound by oath to the Constitution.

But if you tweak it ever so slightly, you end up with a truism that everyone needs to remember: being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry. It’s true, being a Democrat in good standing means you can get away with damn near anything. Ted Kennedy killed a woman, sexually assaulted a waitress with a fellow

The death of John Prine, a survivor of cancer who was lost Tuesday to the coronavirus, takes from us one of America’s greatest troubadours of what we call the Vietnam generation. We were almost exactly the same age and had been in the army at roughly the same time, albeit in different theaters. Yet, in an irony, we failed to fully appreciate Prine’s art until we were educated by our children. Prine wrote and sang scores of songs, and by no means all about Vietnam; some crackled with humor, others ebbed with sadness. The one that rivets us the most, though, is the ballad “Sam Stone,”

Marshal Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto commanded the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II until he was killed in April 1943. Despite the dialogue from the 1970 WWII film "Tora! Tora! Tora!" Yamamoto probably did not say in the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack, "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." But Yamamoto likely either wrote or said something similar: "I can run wild for six months ... after that, I have no expectation of success." Yamamoto summed up a general feeling among the Japanese admirals that the huge industrial capacity of the U.S.

Loudoun County school board member Ian Serotkin posted about the change via Facebook on Tuesday. According to Serotkin, he learned of the change the night prior during a briefing from staff on the Virginia Mathematics Pathway Initiative (VMPI).

Whoever is writing Joe Biden’s material doesn’t appear to have a working knowledge of why it is that Americans celebrate the Fourth Of July, or as it is otherwise known Independence Day.On Wednesday, the nation’s 46th president reiterated his tired threat: If people don’t march down to their local vaccination site and roll up their sleeves, that they would not be able to celebrate July 4th. Even to get together in “small gatherings” to commemorate the day when our forefathers broke free of the tyranny of a king.Biden’s mass vaccination push has gotten stuck in the mud now that those who were eager to take “the jab” have done so

President Joe Biden's administration will allow US embassies around the world to fly the gay Pride flag on the same flagpole as the American flag, reversing a Trump-era policy.In 2019, then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blocked embassy requests to fly the symbol of support for LBGTQ people on the same pole as the Stars and Stripes.But now Biden's Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has given approval to fly the flag at diplomatic outposts around the world, according to a confidential cable reviewed by Foreign Policy magazine.The move comes before May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and before June, which many nations recognize as Gay Pride month.

President Biden on Friday said people who lose jobs in the fossil fuel industry as a result of environmental reforms must be provided new job opportunities “in the places where they live.” Biden claimed in a speech at the White House that phasing out coal, gas and oil doesn’t require economic devastation in current energy-producing regions. “As we transition to a clean energy future, we must ensure that workers who have thrived in yesterday’s and today’s industries have as bright a tomorrow in the new industries as well as in the places where they live and the communities they have built,” Biden told

The Biden Department of Education has quietly proposed a new rule prioritizing the use of federal tax dollars for K-12 schools that replace traditional education with “culturally responsive teaching and learning” – more commonly referred to as critical race theory. This is the most significant move by the federal government to redefine the nature of state-funded public schools in U.S. history. Although the current effort to push public schools receiving federal funding to adopt a detailed indoctrination agenda may feel new and overwhelming for parents, the truth is that the Biden attempt is simply the last phase in a decades-

How to Make a COVID Vaccination Decision 29 replies

n the debate over whether one should or should not get the COVID vaccination, much has been said about the “science.” However, I’m not sure any encyclopedic knowledge of “science” is required to make this health decision. Simple statistical analysis should suffice to inform one’s ultimate decision. Statistics is primarily a study of probabilities. Fortunately, as regards COVID mortality rates, these probabilities are now known. That is, COVID mortality statistics broken down by age cohorts are now “known knowables.” For example, through statistics as of April 7, the odds an American under the age of 25 would die from COVID were 1-in-106,217.
