We're in trouble...

I was reading a report online about how Americans have lost our civic knowledge. Then I was directed to the video below.


All I can do is shrug. I can no longer ask myself about “How Obama was elected?” It seems the average Joe (Six Pack), possibly even Joe the plumber himself, may not have enough information about “how stuff works” to even know why they are voting, let alone who they are voting for.

I’m appalled. Two quotes come to mind:

“Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it. — "George Santayana

“Mediocrity is forgiven more easily than talent. — “Emil Krotky

It is my opinion that Education, Morality, and Righteousness seem to have little value in these United States. To think I once called Canada, America Jr. We in the US are quickly becoming Canada Minor, or France-West, or Sweden’s Love Child. The irony is most American’s wouldn’t even get what I am saying, worse, I doubt whether more than 50% would be able to correctly identify Sweden on a Map. We are indeed in trouble…
