Ah, yes. Public eduction has performed an essential wonder, that is a wonder in the minds of our globalist rulers: Nearly half (49%) of Americans think the president has the authority to suspend the Constitution, according to Rick Shenkman’s new book, “Just How Stupid Are We?: Facing the Truth About the American Voter.”
Other astounding and disturbing facts:
– Only 2 in 5 voters can name the three branches of the federal government.
– Only 1 in 7 can find Iraq on a map.
– Only 1 in 5 know that there are 100 federal senators.
I can forgive them for not knowing the number of senators, but not knowing the three branches of government?
If true, we are indeed screwed. Because the populace is woefully ignorant of the very foundation of our constitutional republic — a trias politica, the three branches of government, intended to prevent one branch from reigning supreme and ushering in tyranny, a situation now manifest as Bush, the neocon puppet, essentially declares the executive a dictatorship. Not only are they unaware of the system of checks and balances, they think — that is, when they bother to think — that Bush has the right to declare himself dictator.
No doubt the American people will get what they deserve — and they will get tyranny, they will become slaves, members of a new servile feudal class.
