Unfortunately, due to the education many citizens have received in the Government School system, the unvarnished truth doesn't sell too well. We have been told, "Surely a country that could put a man on the moon can provide free medical care for everyone who needs it," or "Surely a country that could put a man on the moon can do away with poverty if the 'rich' will just pay their fair share." Yet, the hard math is rarely ever done, and when it is, the people who do it are vilified as doomsayers, because, "Surely... etc. etc." If the citizenry of the U.S. cannot see that Obama is a virtual Communist, and that communism has brought nothing but misery and suffering wherever it has been tried, then they deserve what they get.
