Why we let others tell us they know better than we do and the go along with it is a mystery. When I hear obama, his wife or any other progressive preach to me, a song starts playing in my head:
"But he can't even run his own life,
I'll be damned if he'll run mine!"
Their methods are the stuff of genius.
They mock and deride your common sense. They get us to a point when our innate sense of thriving, indeed even surviving, stop functioning. They make us allow ourselves to override our sense of right and wrong and stand mute.
This method requires no weapons, it effectively allows the masses to kill themselves by not fighting back.
Republicans are especially susceptible to this.
