Paul is perceptive. In 2008, Barack Obama used a movie analogy about Chicago gangland warfare. "They bring a knife, we'll bring a gun." Well, Republicans brought the proverbial pen of truth while the Obama campaign brought the proverbial guns and knives of deceit, propaganda, and empty promises. Repubicans expected more than 50 percent of American voters might actually think about their political commitments and not be swayed by Rap singers and washed up, Rust Belt crooners. The dumming down of America is in full bloom. Ultimately, we fail if our education systems fail. We have to ask the right questions and then equip people with the basic knowledge to pursue those questions. Until then, it's "Forward" or "Change." Woe is us.
