Five Hundred

The mismatch did not exist back when America was a country content to be run by its citizens; that didn’t aspire to be run by elites who were nothing but media creations. The earlier America didn’t need an experienced thug for president. It could rely on its freedom to be a superior, productive society as a trump. For it was the country — not the elites — that beat its rivals. When you let America be itself it simply overwhelmed the opposition. All the cleverness of Hitler or Stalin did them no good. They still lost the Second and Cold Wars to an America of ordinary free people.

The way I see it is that people living in a country led by a Putin, 9 times out of ten, know they are being led by a thug, but see little they can do about it. Here, thanks to decades of an education system that dumbs people down it's the opposite. 9 out of ten think they are living in the freest country ever to exist because they have a choice of being able to buy a Ford pick-up as opposed to the Toyota or Dodge. They can repeat whatever slogan they were told by lame-stream media is intelligent and clever, and we end up with imbeciles electing an imbecile who is also no more than a mere puppet. All the while the puppet-masters stay hidden behind the scenes. Decades back Americans took a real interest on where the country was headed and talk around an extended family get together/bar-b-Que consisted of serious discussions of just what was going on. Now I find even somewhat "awake" people more concerned about discussing where they want to go on vacation in order to scratch something off of their bucket list. And to bring up a serious issue gets one derided for being "negative". As though we should all be singing silly, happy songs and have a Prozac induced smile on our faces. It's easy to put all the blame on the so-called elite, for they are the driving force behind our country's destruction. But as older folks used to say long ago: "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink it".
