GUEST,peedeecee BS: It's over. Bush wins! (100* d) RE: BS: It's over. Bush wins! 04 Nov 04

I mean is it really a good idea for half the people to be enslaved by the ignorance of the other half?"

This rates as one of the most moronic things I have ever read here.

Indeed it is not moronic. It represents one of the main problems with America -- the tyranny of the majority, as de Tocqueville predicted in the 18th century.

The majority always getting its way leads to LCD -- lowest common denominator -- in politics, religion, education, entertainment, and all aspects of a culture. It explains a lot of things such as American sitcoms, pop music, and movies that rely on big noises and special effects rather than intelligent ideas.

It also explains rednecks electing a president who is a clown a man with the sophistication of a booger joke. I am very glad I am not an American -- I would flinch with embarrassment at the thought of George W. Bush meeting any other head of state in the world.
