irishkcguy saidCan these idiots even define the word "socialism?" It's like teenagers who use the word "gay" to describe everything they think is lame or uncool. I would think people who call themselves "teabaggers" would be all for gay marriage.
I am really starting to fear for the country because a huge chunk of people are incredibly undereducated. There are some frighteningly stupid people out there.
Even people on the far left scare me... truely there are many IGNORANT people in this country and has much to do with the fact that we as americans dont give a shit about anything that doesnt affect our day-to-day lives. its one of thoes things that is just makes americans americans and that is our down fall. people need a reason to not just know whats going on in the world but rather how and why it affects them or would affect them.
Yes, there are people on both sides who are very uneducated.
In fact, one thing that drives me crazy about a lot of Democrats who are in office, as well some of the people who the Democrats choose for their spokespeople (can we say Donna Brazile?), is how lame they are when defending their positions. Often these are positions that I agree with, but sometimes they make such a bad case for them on television that it seems that they don't even truly understand the reasons why those positions are the most sensible.
There are Republicans who are well-educated on many issues, even if I disagree with their positions most of the time. Unfortunately (though perhaps in some ways this is actually fortunate), it's the stupid and uneducated ones who scream all the time.
