You need proof of just how ignorant many Americans are on the key political issues of the day? Watch this video from the Jimmy Kimmel Show where they send someone out to ask what people on the street think of Obama pardoning the Sequester and sending it to Portugal:
"Sequester what? I don't know. I just voted for him [Obama] because he's black!"
Put aside for a moment the ready admission of racism on the part of the black woman who admitted only voting for Obama because he's black. We've come to expect that. What's even more disturbing is the fact that no one seemed to even know what the Sequester is. This should frighten those of us who know that for democracy to function it depends on an informed electorate.
I'd be willing to bet that those same people could tell you every bit of gossip about the latest celebrity scandal. Our culture has become so dumbed down that the people are no longer able to exercise their political judgment effectively. Who can we thank for that? Democrats who control the levers of education and entertainment.
