    Just ran across an interesting video that is eerily very much like actual candidates that are running around now.

    Why are people so angry so fast? When has being angry ever HELPED with decision making? Why is the average person so ignorant on so many important issues?

    Which candidate(s) does this remind you of?

    If this keeps up...America is truly lost.

    Try something else besides telling people they are too stupid to appreciate his greatness.

    Then, prepare to be crushed.

    Maybe they're angry because that they don't like being told that they're too stupid to recognize how brilliant know-it-all authoritarian windbags like you are.

    Please...Keep it up.

    The people whom you wish to persuade to vote your way just love being told how stupid they are.

    Get back to me when you can identify which "way" I would vote. I'm pulling for a conservative in my particular district, so please stop talking.

    Any form of emotion can cloud logical thinking, and infects politics constantly to the determent of US Citizens. And most citizens frankly mah friend, just don't give a damn. When it finally collapses on them, their fight or flight will kick in, and they will suddenly come to action to late.

    This was hilarious.It's frustrating to be a witness as more and more people either are speaking out and exposing this willful ignorance, due to greater access to media via the internet with forums like these, or simply due to more people willfully forgoing logic and replacing it with pure emotional logic, usually driven by fear, as I theorize. This video perfectly parodied the general mentality of the neo-cons and many republicans, including tea-partiers. I'm not saying all of them, but a lot of them I witness, hear, and read about. I'm not saying they are bad people either, just so deluded that their morality has turned sour without them knowing it. I only wish they could see it. Unfortunately, those who seemed to haven fallen to this evil are unable to see it in themselves, and instead blame the world for all that is wrong, and are unable to look inside and see the ignorance they themselves possess which is fostering and allowing their usually distorted and errant beliefs relative to the reality of things. This was a great video, and though comical and satirical, it sadly spoke too much truth to the reality of things. Thanks for posting.
