While I am not shocked in the least to see how completely moronic and uneducated these people are, the implication (whether intended or not) is that McCain voters were smarter. The fact is that anyone who voted Republican or Democrat simply does not get it; we have become a two-party tyranny and neither party is beholden to the people anymore. The parties are vehicles for the elite and business elite to centralize power in the hands of a select few. The real interesting poll would have covered supporters of both parties.

Very good observation. While I am amongst those who think Obama was elected for less than intelligent reasons, I do recognize that the underlying problem is our polarized political system and the corruption and under-table deals between the parties. However, as I've said, I do think that a lot of the votes for Obama were based on propaganda and ignorance, more so than for McCain. Does this mean McCain's voters were smarter? Absolutely not, just that, and I keep repeating this, so sorry for anyone who's already read it, Obama made himself into a product, and we bought it.

On Election day twelve Obama voters were interviewed extensively right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign. IMO the reason why these people failed the quiz is simple, it’s because honest hard working people of the USA don't have enough time in their lives to dedicate to their own families and lives let alone to research about who they are voting for. Or the time to learn about the current political system to correctly answer all of the 12 questions they were asked in this poll. This means that the small amount of time that they do have to research comes from what the media tells them, so I wouldn't expect any other outcome than this one! I also believe that the people who made this video obviously selected from all the interviews they made that day only the ones that fit their biased view. It is fairly easy to see that these people work for the Status Quo Media and are very pathetic individuals out to wreck the only HOPE we have left for a collapsed Political/Financial system. I really do hope for the sake of humanity that Obama has our nation’s future in his thoughts every day and I will be one of millions who will work my fingers to the bone to make that a reality. Sometimes I catch myself doubting whether it is already too late and Obama is there to paint a picture of "Well we tried to fix it, you saw us try didn't you?".

I have just two things to say for people who voted for obama one is that if you look it up he couldn't get any security clearence because of his affliations, second you can be smart or gifted and still make stupid decisions, look at germany electing Hitler, or france and napoleon, we are at a turning piont here, and sometimes people don't see exactly what they should because of the smoke and mirrors of the media. How can any say what could've been or should've been if 90% of media is liberal, but even that is not true, go back in your history books and see when the rebulican party was created and why, look at history it will show the path we are going down now. soon goverment will control all taking money from people giving it to other people until u only have the very rich, and the very poor. If u don't see what I mean look at historic Russia and the new Russia and see what they have done since turning away from soliclist ideas. China is even turning into more of a capatilistic country, so is our government doing right for the people, hidding things in bills, and not the media not reporting everything about the bills that are trying to past. I say these are times we should all have great conserns for this country is not the country that are founding fathers would like, but most don't know the constituiton wording or what it says. I say for every person writing on this blog be aware of what you think and reliaze the media is liberal, but then again what is liberal now, Democratic liberal is not liberlism, its changed to almost socialism, which if I remember right it was the 1940 or 1950's that a lot of liberals where being invetsigated for being communsit, so whats the difference between the two nothing. I know people will say bad things too me about my blog but I believe that the media of today compared to media of any era before has moved more left and unfortnately that means that no republican will ever get a fair deal in. By the way Iran and Syeria,when we pull out of Iraq if we have no base there or troops station there Iran and Syeria will invade and and Iraq will be no more, our oil will double in price or they could cut us out completely. The boaders of Pakistan are anther issue if history reminds me when Pakistan became a country it created a pack with tribes that we are now asking pakistan to bomb (under Obama), those treats said that Pakistan wouldn't interfere with the tribes buisness, or something to that effect. Now what ramifications could that have will Pakistan is already becoming unstable if they should fall completely the Taliban could move in and take the country and aquire Pakistan nuclear arrsonal. Sorta like almost happen in the U.S.S.R. when it collapsed. Which means more trouble for us and the rest of the world. So there you have my opions a little history lesson look it up and see maybe this will open some eyes and maybe not. A little information about me Im a former USMC that has seen combat and read a lot of history, and one more thing just think about this if it wasn't for France we might still be under Britians rule and remember why e fought for freedom, and the cost of freedom.
