Do You Know Your America?
Do You Know Your Government?
Are You One Of The Low Information Americans?
Be brave and find out what you know and what you should be learning; all our freedoms may depend on it.
IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS!
We all hold a certain belief that we know enough about America’s Constitution (the government and its rules and laws) to get by in this life but the stark reality is, we barely scratch the surface when it comes to a knowledge about the laws, the establishments and the constitution itself, that we must live by. In plain words, most of us are ignoramuses when it comes to our rights, we seem to allow our politicians and their propaganda machines to eju-ma-cate us on the mechanics of our government (the legal workings along with the illegal disguised as legal like VOTER SUPPRESSION). Not being an informed voter is what gets us so many selfish and ignorant leaders. As George Carlin once stated: GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT... let’s start today by taking the garbage out, thus putting truth and justice in.

"Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody:
'The Public Sucks. F*ck Hope.'" ~George Carlin~
Please take this short test and scoop up some knowledge, (it's free) get some real honest-to-goodness know-how and learn what the innards of our government looks and smells like. Maybe, if we knew more we would get less Limbaughs and Fox News.
There I go again DREAMING THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM! Thinkingblue
Why did Winston churchill say that democracy is the worst form of government?
Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried.
In a speech in the House of Commons on 11 November 1947, Winston Churchill said:
No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.
" Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
Sir Winston Churchill, Hansard, November 11, 1947
