The old saying goes that ignorance can be fixed with a little education, crazy can be fixed with little medication, but stupid is forever. And this election cycle has proven to all Americans that the saying is still valid. There isn’t enough room here, nor time in the universe, to list all the faux pas, lies, half-truths, obfuscations, misstatements, etc. that were used in the 2016 and 2018 elections, by both D’s and R’s.
Ignorance can be fixed with education. Stupid is forever.
It can be somewhat confusing because making rapid logical deductions from available facts and/or sensory input is essential to navigating daily life and planning for the near and long term future. And as we live in the internet age where we are bombarded with a myriad of information, some true, some false and much a mixture of real and not, the “news” most people accept as reality is anything but.
It’s this mixture of facts and fake news added to the stupidity of the Republican voters and the Democrat voters in particular [as admitted even by Hillary Clinton and James Carville] that is the problem facing America in the near term.
James Carville is the Democrats best political dirty trickster. He knows all the angles and games. And it’s not that he doesn’t like Republicans, he does. He said it himself, it’s that the Democrat’s supporters are so much more stupid that it’s easy to get them to follow the lie of the day.
Socialism and Communism have caused approx. 200 million deaths in recent history. Communism somewhat over 100 million and Socialism approx. 70 million. Compare that to western culture and our geopolitical adventures and we pale by comparison. Yet, American Democrats, i.e. Socialists would have you believe the very opposite. They paint America as the most corrupt, vile, evil, wicked, mean and nasty country to ever have existed on Planet Earth.
Hillary Clinton and James Carville have stated that Democrats think their voters are “stupid, cattle, dumb and lazy”
And this is what they think about their own constituents. They think far less of Conservatives, and actually, have called for us to be “culled” from the herd. This means all of us, Left and Right and Center and apolitical. They are our ruling class and how dare us to question them about any of their motives and/or actions. They are special, not us.
So let’s double down on stupid then! Enter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Stupid Ocasio-Cortez comments:
- how do you pay for government programs that cost over $32 Trillion?
“You just pay for it”.
- Daily Wire host Amy Goodman asked Ocasio-Cortez: “Is there a difference between your position as an activist and as a candidate, particularly in the ability to be critical of human rights violations committed by Israel?”
Ocasio-Cortez struggled to answer the question, saying: “Well I think that, um, you know I don’t think that there’s a huge difference. I do think that as we approach issues like these and sometimes we hope that … there’s a lot, I mean candidates are, the inherent nature of being a candidate and being in a political office means that my job is to be criticized, and my job is to be held accountable, that is my job.”
- when queried by CNN’s Chris Cuomo if she recognized Pelosi as the current Speaker of the House, Ocasio-Cortez was incoherent at best…
“Of course,” she answered tersely. “I think absolutely, right now, she is the leader. Hopefully, you know, we’ll see — she’s the current leader of the party and I think that the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House. We have our leadership in the Senate as well.”
- even worse, Ocasio-Cortez could not defend her own far-left political ideology, admitting to “Democracy Now! “that the only way she can win is by “expanding the electorate and that she could not win by staying in mainstream American politics and could not win by convincing people that her ideology was best.”
- “unemployment is low because everyone is working 2 jobs”
- “a 17-year-old can walk into a shop and buy an assault weapon”
We’ll leave her alone for now, we don’t mean to pile on her, but she really does make herself an easy target every single time she opens her mouth. It must be difficult in life when it’s hard to remember your shoe size versus your IQ… Hmmmm is it a 6 or a 7… (Hint: Shoe size is the small number)
If Socialism is the answer…
How stupid was the question?
Since stupid cannot really be fixed as such, then we must simply retain competent people in office via the ballot box, which means educating the ignorant among us.
In several key races around the country Republican candidates barely eked out wins over the Dems. This should be a wake up call to all of us. We’re almost at the tipping point, and once we reach it, there is no return to a representative republic. Socialism will have won and we are Venezuela.

Socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. [Bing search result]
We do already have quasi-socialism in many of our industries and governmental programs. We have electricity co-ops. We have farmer co-ops. Non-profits are often co-ops. But to apply the same standards to hundreds of millions of people?
It’s never worked on a large scale. It’s failed in numerous countries, with Venezuela being the latest failed Socialist state. Maduro has stolen approx. $2 Billion of the people’s money there, after Chavez stole much more before he died, and the people are literally starving. And life goes on, or death as it were.
