They are scum because they're racist drunkards who are uninvolved with the country and do not know anything about the candidates they support. How could someone possibly vote for Hillary and not support Obama when his policies are damn near identical to hers? These fucking idiots only see what's on the surface, like skin colors and BIRTH names...I guess it's not enough that Hillary backs Obama fully. Makes you wonder why they'd even vote for Hillary to begin with.... why are they scumbags? oh they are not as well educated as you almighty are. if they were blacks speaking against having a white president all you s--theads would be saying oh the poor underpriveleged southern folks. it is sad how the government has left them out of the loop with poor schools and no jobs in their little communities. get used to it cause if bootlip obama gets elected this whole country is headed for a financial disaster.
If you thought the video, "Patriotic drunk rednecks" was hilarious...well, it was. The problem, though, is that while these maroons may be funny, what's not so humorous is that these fools (and far too many like them) vote. Now, I'm not proposing that we bar stupid people from voting (though the thought does hold some appeal), but damn, shouldn't we be able to expect a minimum of native intelligence from those who cast votes?
To those of you who think that my argument borders on intellectual elitism, I can understand where you're coming from. Nonetheless, this isn't about elitism. No, this is about stupid people making decisions that can and ultimately may impact all of us. When stupid people making stupid decision for stupid reason, yes, it upsets me. I take a great deal of pride in understanding the world around me, and in casting my vote after making absolutely certain that I understand the issues and where the candidates stand on them. When elections are decided by those who are not only ignorant, but aggressively and openly ignorant- and proud of it- yes, that pisses me off...because I deserve better. WE DESERVE BETTER.
The reality is that Rednecks rule our world. These folks proudly represent the intellectual lowest common denominator...and their votes determine the fate and the direction of this nation. They're predisposed to believe the lowest, vilest Right-wing propaganda, and they will parrot these lies and talking points as if they're Gospel, and their votes decided elections. Not exactly a stunning endorsement of democracy, eh?
If you get the opportunity, I would highly recommend Deer Hunting With Jesus by Joe Bageant. Having been born and raised a redneck himself, Bageant does a masterful job of describing the mindset of these people and their wonderful facility for continually voting against their own self-interest. Stupid people making stupid decisions for stupid reasons.... These are the very people that John McCain and Sarah Palin are so assiduously courting...and attempting to scare stupid. If you're predisposed to believe the worst of whatever propaganda you're fed, if critical and rational thinking leave your head aching, you're one of the people profiled by Joe Bageant...and it's not a pretty picture...because you're among the same people I grew up among.
This isn't going to be a well-received assertion, but we really are a nation of dolts...and at a time when we're facing one of the most serious economic crises in our history, our collective decision-making process is a joke. The problem, though, is that there's nothing to laugh about.
