OMG, this isn't about who is less informed or which side has more informed voters?

I do not believe how people can get that from my post?????? Why does it always have to be one side against another...? This is absoultely getting ridiculous!!!!

It's like beating your head up against the wall....

until that mentality changes, nothing will ever change

As long as there are Americans with the above characteristics, there will always be democrats.

If the 2012 election taught us anything, it is that an inferior candidate can be placed in the White House by low information morons. Do not count out another liberal presidential candidate in 2016 for these very same reasons.
If you didn't learn that long before 2012 you really weren't paying attention, were you?

Yeah, Obama was definitely cooler and hipper....but despite the whining of the far right you really got just another corporatist that continued US foreign policy as business as usual, the NSA stuff and also didn't turn out to be "green" either.

So, I'm hard pressed deciding which group of voters is dumber....the guys that wanted that in the first place or the guys that didn't want that but are putting up with it and making excuses for him because he's "their guy".

As long as the two-party system remains in control we can look forward? to more elections between corporatists since both parties are owned by corporate interests.

What about the guys who didn't really want 'that' but wanted the alternative even less?

I'm sitting here getting really upset! It doesn't have anything to do with IQ, or at least this thread doesn't....what it's about is people who are not informed, which has nothing to do with IQ!!!!

You don't have to be a graduate to know something about politics or what is going on out there....do you realize, some people don't even know we have an illegal immigration problem?

It's about keeping up with current events....

Except for Cokie Roberts, she never ever ceases to make me want to vomit....what a ding bat!

It is pathetic....they simply vote, b/c they have been register democratic or Republican since they were 21. So so so many people in this county do not have a clue....and I'm not putting myself above anyone else, but honstly, American's do not really know what is going on....and you can tell that by a lot of the posts here in this forum, and I'm including myself, we are in fact a country who is loosing intellectual skills.
I was talking about US citizens, too.
