The media has a lot to with this illiteracy. The media only shows one side of an issue, the liberal side. They make fun of the conservatives, and don't give us an open discussion on the issues or the candidates. The media deals with emotions, and the feel good mentality. They don't look at issues from both sides, just from the liberal side. The teachers in colleges and high school also teach everything from the liberal point of view. No teaching of civics, or of government. This generation is being cheated in many ways, no wonder young people vote for the Democrats.
