Just 5 John? You can probably report on at least a dozen more. For example our corrupt left wing educational system all the way from K thru college. There are a large number of columns appearing, not just on Town Hall, but everywhere, where theories abound as to why Obama won. But none of these give the real reason because it is politically incorrect to say so. So, they dream up all these other reasons to avoid the real reasons. The main reason is that half the population is below the median IQ and they have been brainwashed by our corrupt radical left wing education system and our corrupt radical left wing main stream media. And these stupid people are the Democrats base.

Education $$$ should be directed by parents not government officials, even local ones.

In fact they voted in a UN control. Is that coming here too? Sure seems like it.

It was the less knowledgeable of us that voted for Obama. He has to count on them now to keep praising him while he does his dirty work. Our government schools should get a failed grade for sending out citizens who don't have a clue about the Constittution, how government works, who pays the bills, and how being dependent on government makes for a weak country. The ones who voted for Obama just don't care. Face it. They will get theirs while the rest of us try to hold up the country another four years. It's going to be hard, but I refuse to give up and give the country to the losers.

There is a difference between intelligence (IQ) and actual education. Actual ability to connect the dots can be off for both reasons, and anyone employing people who have never succeeded in school, or even attended school, knows these ignorant folks can run rings around them is devising ways to game the system and cheat their employer. Intelligence is there.

It's true that the "good old days" weren't always good, but we should also remember that our belief that we're completely superior to previous generations of Americans doesn't even remotely square with reality. It's fine to pat ourselves on the back for being wealthier, more educated and considerably less racist than we used to be, but we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that those less educated, backward people in their antiquated clothes were head and shoulders better than we are in a myriad of other ways. We should remember that the real problem isn't having a problem; it's having a...
