DEMOCRATS CAN'T -- OR JUST WON'T -- THINK!
Vanity ^ | 9/26/2012 | Dick Bachert

Posted on 09/26/2012 8:55:26 AM PDT by Dick Bachert

I believe I’ve figured out the how and the why concerning America’s accelerating slide into the socialist sewer.

Let me juxtapose two comments to explain. (For Democrats who may see this and have severely limited vocabularies, here’s the definition of this adjective: placed side by side often for comparison; at or within a short distance in space or time or having elements near each other.)

This one is attributed to Democrat political operative, James Carville:

"The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd. Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don't have a clue as to political reality. What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want. The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn't have a clue than there were Republicans."

You may be asking how it is that so many allegedly “bright” and “educated” people would become Democrats today.

The second comment will help you understand that apparent inconsistency:

“(…) the spread of secondary and latterly tertiary education has created a large population of people, often with well-developed literary and scholarly tastes, who have been educated far beyond their capacity to undertake analytical thought.” — Microbiologist P.B. Medawar

The ultimate portable skill now missing from a large segment of our population is the capability of CRITICAL THOUGHT! It goes a long way toward explaining our current mess (the violation of the laws of economics) and almost certainly explains Obama.

I hate to have to say this but I have some of these overeducated, critical thinking impaired individuals in my family – and you probably do too.

Between now and November 6th, do what you can to help these family members come to understand the danger to themselves, the country and our mutual posterity of their intellectually damaged condition. If we fail to reach enough of these sad folks, this may well be our LAST ELECTION.

That said, some folks just enjoy being treated like so much livestock and have found that wallowing in the mud of their own ignorance is less demanding than thinking for themselves and making their own decisions. About all you can do for them is save your table scraps and toss them their way a few times a day. I mean, they have to eat, too!

Sure, there are bright intelligent people in the Democrat Party, but they are few in number and are either tragically flawed with deep psychological personality disorders, or they believe themselves to be the elitist architects of the new society. That intoxicating liqueur of power, all powerful power.

In either case they believe that they control the direction of the new order, yet they become the tools of the truly mad like Obama - all for hope of some power over the lives of others.

The overwhelming majority of the Democrat Order, however, are just plain mindless, willingly ignorant slugs who only care about the entitlements they are due, period. They are the slothful of the world, the lazy and the unthinking greedy. Greedy even to the point of killing the goose that lays the golden egg. Largess is their life's blood.

I believe you are over-thinking the situation.

Many Democratic members put as much thought, if not less thought, into picking a sports team. And like a sports team, they will root for their team during good seasons as well as poor seasons. To them, to even consider thoughts that run either for, or against, their limited common sense; means that they are somehow dis-loyal to their sports team. For them, the DNC is nothing more and nothing less than a “game” that has absolutey no ramifications to their jobs, freedoms, ethics, morals or taxes.

To even question the DNC is to “boo” your own team.

There really is no other reason to support the illogical decisions they freely make.

I’m calling BS on the Carville quote. Even he’s not that stupid to let a quote like that get out there. Its made up, out of context or a combination of both.

Listen to the interviews by Howard Stern on you tube below. It is scary these people are allowed to vote.

It’s easy to explain. If you are willingly, gleefully, going to surrender your life’s decisions over to a group of people in Washington you must view that group of people as better than you. No one would surrender their life’s decisions to someone they felt was equal to or below them because that would be stupid.
All Democrats must view their politicians as their bettors or their ideology does not work. They would never admit this but they know it’s true.

KNEEL!

Is not this simpler? Is this not your natural state?

It's the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation.

The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity.

You were made to be ruled.

In the end, you will always kneel!

I’m afraid you give the guy too much credit. If you’ve watched him during TV appearances, once he gets his mouth running, he’s nearly impossible to shut up. He’s the official poster boy for stream of consciousness diatribes.

Couple that with a few belts of booze at a private meeting with the other Demoncrap insiders (which happens a lot with them) and that quotation makes perfect sense.

My question is; why? why do they have to eat too?
Perhaps if they were allowed to starve to the point of dieing at least the drive for survival would kick in and cause them to start thinking critically about the conditions they find themselves and their country in.

The more I see of the Obamanation, the more I think Loki was right.
