Letter squarely IDs decline

  • Follow Letters

Bravo, Clifford Henning, for his letter outlining the transformation of our great nation (“And now, the future news,” June 21).

I could add much more to Mr. Henning’s list of things to come, but it would fall on deaf ears these days. The high-information voter can see the tragic decline in our civilization, which mirrors the fall of Rome, and it is staring us straight in the face. But for the low-information voter, it is all bread and circuses.

However, we are not talking about rational thinkers, are we? These low-information people do not think in an informed way. They are handicapped by self-inflicted denial, aided by a dismal government-run school system, and perpetuated by a nanny-state mentality. This a most certainly a recipe for the decline in our way of life.

Is it when our standard of living hits bottom that these unwitting people, who have supported the regime running things in Washington, come to realize what a colossal mistake they have made? This would be the logical conclusion a rational person would surmise when witnessing an economic meltdown that is so apparent. But again, we are not talking about rational thinkers.

These low-information voters are an emotionally driven group of people seeking pipe dreams while sticking their hands in the pockets of their neighbors. What they failed to realize is that their neighbors’ pockets will run dry, and they will then be left to their own devices.

So, has Mr. Henning hit the nail on the head when describing the dire future ahead of us? I say yes. Based on what has occurred in the past two elections, the future of our once-great nation will be no surprise for the informed and rational voter. However, the future will hit the low-information voter like a ton of bricks. There will be no place to hide, and there will be no help from Washington. Rome is the example, and we are following its playbook, thanks to the low-information voter.

owensfef.....you frighten me. I can't believe you are saying that the government should murder people BEFORE they have committed any crime.

"Perhaps we should only allow "the informed voter" to vote !!"
Bledsoe, that would eliminate a large % of Obama voters.

HA @ 7:29

""Japan would never invade the United States. We would find a rifle behind every blade of grass."

HA, I have NO DOUBT that your research is solid. However, I believe that it also had something to do with the distance factor as well.

Bledsoe, you REALLY need to study history. Real history not the PC BS the govamint schools are teaching now.

It is the low-information

It is the low-information voter than thinks a President is to blame for the problems of the US- when, in fact, it is CONGRESS.

You know, like the Senate that just voted to grant amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens.

THAT'S what people need to be worrying about, not President Obama!

People want to talk about the

People want to talk about the dismal government-run school system.

That, in fact, is really not true; but people in the CSRA see the RC schools, and that's their frame of reference, so they think all of America is like that.

And it's not, those same government schools do a great job of educating children. Millions of hardworking, productive Americans received public school educations. Every year, millions of kids graduate high school and go on to jobs or higher education.

Not everywhere is Augusta. Believe me on this one.
