Trump mania is sweeping the country! Some view him as an out of control bigot. Some view him as the savior of the nation. Regardless of how one sees Donald Trump, he is galvanizing the country and getting the country to focus their discontent on the government unlike his Republic colleagues.
Donald Trump is waking America up to the fact that you cannot fool all the people all of the time.
I have always had ambivalent feelings toward Abraham Lincoln. On one hand, the man was an absolute despot who jailed protesters and reporter with whom he did not agree with. On the other hand, and for a brief moment, he brought America the closest it has ever been in fulfilling the meaning of the words “All men are created equal”, when he freed the slaves, although his motivation to do so and how he went about it, left much to be desired.
Despite Lincoln’s “Constitutional” shortcomings, he was absolutely correct on all counts when said:
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time”.
In my world view, I think the globalists are fooling most of the people all of the time. For far too long, we have been a nation whose poster child looks like this:
America’s ineptitude and unwillingness to fight for what is right is re-elected in Rick Shenkman’s book, Just How Dumb Are We? Shenkman found that 87% of American college students could not find Iraq on a map. In fact, Shenkman also found that:
– Only 1 in 5 know that we have 100 United States senators.
-Only 2 out of 5 citizens can name the three branches of the federal government.
-Only 20% of young Americans between the ages 18-34 read a newspaper daily. An amazingly low 11% report surfing Internet news sites.
Among 18- to 24-year-old Americans given maps:
-83 percent cannot find Afghanistan on a map
-76 percent cannot find Saudi Arabia
-70 percent cannot find New Jersey
-11 percent cannot find the United States
What does this mass ignorance add up to? I believe the following photo captures this sentiment that most Americans are living in a state learned helplessness.
