Mo­ron ma­jor­ity

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - Wil­liam W. Wat­son

I have no doubt that my eighth-grade civics class in 1948 at David­son High School in St Joseph, Louisiana had a higher IQ than the av­er­age voter in the 2012 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, 64 years later.

That’s a lot of “dumb­ing down” over a lot of years.

YouTube ex­am­ples of Ivy League students’ lack of fun­da­men­tal knowl­edge of how our gov­ern­ment works were truly pa­thetic. They, along with their pro­fes­sors, Hol­ly­wood elites, MSNBC and CNN blind fol­low­ers, and a host of peo­ple count­ing on a Santa Claus gov­ern­ment, made up this slim ma­jor­ity of vot­ers that re­turned Pres­i­dent Obama to of­fice.

God help our na­tion. The slim ma­jor­ity of its cit­i­zens surely won’t.
