VIDEO: The Future of America (press play button below)
Awhile back, I coined the term “TV voter” in reference to the person whose sole or primary knowledge of political candidates’ positions is acquired via television viewing. In my opinion, the majority choosing to vote for Barack Obama are TV voters. Their source of knowledge? I don’t know; probably MSNBC.
All kidding aside, check out this unscientific survey conducted by Jesse Watters. On the Fourth of July he interviewed 27 people under the age of 40 — a whopping 55% of these individuals had, quoting Mr. Watters, “no clue about the founding of this country.” Remember, each one of these person’s vote is exactly equal to yours and mine and they love Obama!
Key words to watch for in these TV voters’ answers: “Bicentennial” — “Independence from whom?” — “Abraham Lincoln, our first president” — “What’s a ‘founding father’?” — “Samuel Adams” — “Freedom” — “1600″ (the year Declaration of Independence was signed) – and many more! What is shocking and sad is these people are serious and they are sober.
The reason I put up this “survey” is because I strongly believe the main reason we have many young people who are so willing to give up personal liberty for the mirage of entitlement is because they know little to nothing about the sacrifices of the women and men that established this nation (and if I didn’t, you would not have believed me when restating their answers). Sadly, most know nothing about why this nation is special — why America is exceptional.
American Values: “In God We Trust” — “Liberty” — “E Pluribus Unum”
