I continue to harp on the fact that today's average American "yutz" can't distinguish between intelligence and stupidity, or religious mores versus amoral behavior. All living things make a continuing effort to provide for their basic needs with the exception of one - the modern day homo-sapien. Confine an animal to a pen and feed him twice daily, soon the animal becomes totally dependent. This same example is currently being allowed to happen in the United States to its citizenry by an ignorant electorate. Mind-numbed robots are being turned out in record numbers from indoctrination centers (our public education system) where dependence and self-centered behavior is cultivated, promoted and nurtured. We are at a point of no return....

That's why it's so disconcerting to learn that two big factors in President Obama's re-election was his electoral dominance among both unmarried Americans (at an all time high) and the religiously unaffiliated (also growing ever larger).

The statistics about single voters are discouraging because...
