I recently saw on several progressive TV shows that there was a poll surveying Americans on whether they preferred the legislative branch: 1) creating jobs; 2) looking for scandals to place on the President. The answer: 73% were for creating jobs while 22% preferred congress using their time looking for scandals.
While everybody was applauding the 73%; I thought that the 22% was a hell of a lot of people.
Who are these 22%? They are mostly ultra conservative. Many are extremely religious Protestants. Many believe that the president is a Muslim and is not a citizen (therefore he cheated to become president). Some of them have guns and some of them even want a second Civil War (succeeding from the Union will do that).
In the 1930 Reichstag Elections, the Nazi Party won only 18.3% of the votes. They went on to win over Germany and almost succeeded in conquering the world. If the Nazis could do that with 18.3%, imagine what could be done with 22% of the vote. The big quote the Jews had in 1930’s Germany was “It can’t happen here”; boy were they surprised. A lot of people in America say “It can’t happen here”. Do you see a parallel? I am not saying run to Canada; but just watch to see how thing are going and if it starts to happen. Then run to Canada.
Here Are Some Interesting Facts:
18% believe in Geocentric Theory. There are some people who actually believe that the Earth is flat and the government is trying to cover it up (I don’t mean the Flat Earth Society).
Many people believe that condoms don’t work: 20% of men and 11% of women. Many people believe that abortion causes cancer. 30% believe that the Bible is ALL literally true (that means that bats are classified as birds; rabbits chew their cud; and locusts, and beetles have four legs). This author has read the Bible but he doesn’t take it to be the literal word of God. He also doesn’t believe that bats are birds, rabbits chew their cud, and locusts and beetles have four legs.
20% believe that the president is a Muslim.
25% believe that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is a hoax. What about Lamarck’s Theory of Evolution? Newton’s Laws are theories too; are they a hoax? What about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity?
40% of people believe in Sarah Palin’s obvious lie about “Death Panels” in health care reform. Not that there are not people deciding to take people, who are sick, off of health care.
Only 50% of Americans believe that Judaism is older than Christianity or Islam. .How many of them read their Bible or Koran.

Bats are birds; Rabbits chew their cud; Some insects have four legs. The author has seen a lot of articles stating that the Bible says these things: I will give you one article:
