When I was younger, and quite comfortable in my complacency, I had this utterly absurd notion that our government consisted of an august body of intellects and sages that worked diligently at the task of making our country work for the betterment of all.
How completely and utterly ignorant I was. Completely ignorant. Ignorant (and trusting) to the point of stupidity. Whew !
I realize now that my image of Washington could not have been further from that fantasy than it was possible to have been.
Our government, I now see with clarity, consists of a group of racist, bumbling, buffoons, who’s number one goal is to pander to those that hold the purse strings, and “The People” be damned. Especially the little people.
It’s astonishing that given a choice, there are people, and not just politicians, that would choose ignorance over enlightenment. And not just choose ignorance, but to be proud of the fact that they’re ignorant.
I mean ignorance is simply the lack of knowledge, and I can forgive a person for that, but to be willfully ignorant enters another realm altogether, and I call that stupidity. And I do not have a tolerance for stupidity.

As I was searching through my blog notes file, I found this short article above that I had saved. I don’t know when it was actually written but I saved it back in 2011. As I read it again I just had to laugh. This “Some Dude in AK” said it perfectly. I believe a majority of the American people are like this guy was initially in his thoughts about our government, before he had his epiphany.
