Proof that we are a Nation of Sheeple
LETTER to the EDITOR-- MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
(Re: 2012 General Election in USA)
"Let's look at what we have learned from this election: Twenty-one (21) of twenty-two (22) incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected. The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about nine (9) percent.
This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots! - - - Idiots!
We're now again stuck with the useless, dysfunctional government that we so deserve!"
End - letter to editor
Oh, ....and what is a Sheeple?
Sheeple (a portmanteau of "sheep" and "people") is a term of disparagement in which people are likened to sheep, a herd animal. The term is used to describe those who voluntarily acquiesce to a suggestion without critical analysis or research. They undermine their own individuality and may willingly give up their rights.
As has been known for centuries:
"Every country gets the government it deserves!"
