It is not the voter who should be blamed. Our political system is broken because our media are broken.
This country was founded in an environment which had battling media on all sides of every issue. As a result, the voter could not help but be informed. Today, the media are a relentless amen-chorus from the left. They censor and slant the news so that the voter only gets one side of the issue. The few right and center outlets like Townhall and Fox are not enough and the majority of the public is ignorant of the real issues.
On the other hand, our youth are among the most willfully ignorant. They voted Obama and the democrats into power. Let them pay the debt after I am gone. That's what they voted for.
