With education in shambles it's not surprising people are too stupid to understand basic ideas, most especially political manipulation at the hands of their leaders. The solution of course is to close up all the schools and have our parents beat us black & blue with bibles until we become enlightened!
They went after the "eggheads" and "elitists" back in Eisenhower's day as well (those were the slurs they hurled at educated people back then) trying to make intellectualism a dirty word. My how times haven't changed! We will only see more attacks on educated people as the campaign progresses. I'm very shocked at the GOP turning on women as they have, eliminating 40% of the voters from voting for you right off the top is a bold move!
