Missing from the discussion is God and a person's relationship with God. Without God one is doomed to become dumber if he continues in sin as wisdom comes from God. I'm also taken aback by how great the number of drug addicts in this country which I do give partial credence to being part of Obama's victory. And I'm talking primarily about alcohol which affects the brain similarly to cocaine and is a mind altering substance just the same. Not only does it seem I see more alcohol purchasing, but we also have more hard alcohol advertising on television. My wife and I have been ostracized by friends and family just because we don't join in with their drug use at social functions which seems to pierce their consciences. Nation full of addicts.
