By MD, The Patriot Nation I fear for my country when I consider how stupid many of thecitizens have become. To say that it's quite alarming would be a grossunderstatement. I have explained things to people in the most simple ofterms, only to be asked for clarification because they don't understand thecalamity of their thinking. Then, it takes all of the self-control I can muster to holdmy tongue and keep from asking...how can you really be that stupid? What has happened to the brains of people in America, youmight ask? I'll tell you what's happened; people no longer think forthemselves. They rely on the media and television to do their thinking forthem. Then you have the cliques who believe if their chosenpolitician said it then it must be true and everyone else is lying, neverbelieving for a second that perhaps their chosen one has gotten things mixed upor God forbid is flat out lying. It seems most people don't question anything anymore andjust accept whatever they hear from the media, president, or their friends asgospel truth. America is so screwed...because it's no longer about"what can you do for your country" but...what can I get from thegovernment? What price are you willing to put on your freedom? What willyou sell out the future of your children for? Healthcare? Gun control? As for me...I will die on my feet before I live my life onmy knees, as said by Emiliano Zapata.
