    Because democracy only functions properly if the number of sane people outweights the number of morons.

    Looks like Trump still has 1% of the vote.

    https://www.langerresearch.com/wp-co...3Trump2020.pdf

    (28% as opposed to 27%.)

    See this :http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/2005/10...ification.html
    for an explanation for the 27%

    Frankly said, I'm not an US citizen and I don't know many people in the USA, so it was a wild guess for me.
    D. Trump is a loud mouth braggart to my perception... giving emotional manipulative speeches is probably what he does best.

    Would that I lived in such an educated country as yours! Our public education system is pretty terrible. I don't say lightly that spending a few minutes in a grocery store or public area would quickly strip you of the hopes you'd expressed.

    True. Incoming college freshmen are, for the most part, incredibly under-educated. I have been teaching college classes for a long time now and it keeps getting worse, especially with regards to critical thinking skills. That being said, they can and do learn when exposed to the knowledge and skills.

    Whether they're willing to learn is pretty dependent on the individual, though, and plenty just don't want to. But what do you teach, out of curiosity?

    Another damned Welfare cheater. Where is Ronald Raygun or Donald Trump when you need someone to publicize this stuff?:

    Oh, wait. This guy isn't a minority. Nevermind.

    I'm guessing that this guy is ILE, from the Rick and Morty episode alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evYxx8qjZFs
