What luck for rulers that men do not think. - Hitler
It doesn't seem to matter how long I live - I have yet to cease being surprised at how unnecessarily ingorunt almost all people choose to be - and absolutely insist upon remaining. My jaw drops open so often that I'll soon hold the record for Best Human Flycatcher.
Until I'm in The Guinness Book of World Records from my amazement at our culture of hyper-massive ingorunce, I offer this profile. I try to keep it simple, so even first-graders and drunks can follow along. Hopefully, these are not one and the same.
I actually have something in common with them - want the truth? Ask a kid or a drunk. Of course, you may not want anything to do with them afterward.
"The two dominant political parties of The U.S.A., "The Debtocredit Party" and "The Republicreditcard Party" (my terms), have more or less enslaved us with increasing debt for centuries. So this aphorist has long supported alternative parties. Too logical - I know.
Yet, literally 99% of the electorate rationalized voting for these two parties during the 2008 U.S.A. presidential election, and 98% in 2012. Add in millions who chose not to vote, and a statistical 100% continue begging to be herded toward the cliff. Moo."

The U.S.A. national debt - since 1791: because stupid, and the debt, are passed down from generation to generation. - Hyper Intellect, 2011
'Which political party are you going to vote for this year?' 'Why, the smoothest talker with the biggest d***, of course!' - Hyper Intellect, June 2012
You must be out of your tiny little minds. - The Texas Tormentor, Molly Ivins (1944-2007)
(Human nature seems to apply to quite a number of other countries too.)
Just the 13 largest endowments for U.S.A. universities total about $125 billion. And each year The U.S.A. spends hundreds of billions of dollars on education. Yet with massive billions, the best we can produce is 100% of the populace who don't know any better than to repeatedly reward political parties for centuries of gross financial mismanagement?
And now, scientists theorize we may be about to create - or already have - irreversible global warming, so advise we reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But we also don't know any better than to unanimously support these same politicians and political parties that reward - instead of penalize - human reproduction. Thereby supporting increasing GHG.
Congratulations! Through omission and commission, our so-called education system has summited the 100% brainwashing-of-a-very-large-group peak that both sexual hysterias and religions oft achieve. The grade for classes in Civics, Economics, Accounting, Human Sexuality, Environmental Science, Philosophy, Sociology, and (Crowd) Psychology: Fail-.
W.T.F. type of curriculum do we enroll young people in, "There Is No Elephant Growing Under The Rug! Effective Denial Techniques 101", & "Intro To Cliff Diving For Crowds"?
Here, $900. billion-a-year U.S.A. education INDUSTRY (you read that right): start by enlightening young minds with the following from "The Sage of Baltimore", Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956):
"The main thing that every political campaign in The United States demonstrates is that the politicians of all parties, despite their superficial enmities, are really members of one great brotherhood. Their principle, and indeed their sole, object is to collar public office, with all the privileges and profits that go therewith. They achieve this collaring by buying votes with other people’s money. No professional politician is ever actually in favor of public economy. It is his implacable enemy, and he knows it. All professional politicians are dedicated wholeheartedly to waste and corruption. They are the enemies of every decent man."
