How Can People Be So Stupid? Rotating Header Image

The 2012 Voting Dilema

The all-important election of 2012 is upon us. But, who can rational, realistic, scientific people vote for? The Republican party has a whole bunch of “delusional” (as Jesse Ventura described them) people who believe in an imaginary friend who told them to run for office, or vote for this or that, or whatever. The Democrats have a bunch of candidates that are Communists, Socialists, or Marxists, who, like Obama, have their hearts set on destroying America and the entirety of Western civilization. They would do whatever it takes to destroy America, as the policies of Barack Obama have verified.

There is a real dilemma facing sane, rational Americans who do not want delusional people who have imaginary friends with their finger on the nuclear button being President. We know that the thug-in-chief who rules Iran believes in the 12th Imam, the Mahdi. He believes that when Iran finally brings about Armageddon, the Mahdi, who, they claim,  has been hiding at the bottom of a well in Qom for over 1100 years, will come out of that well to lead Shia Muslims to take over the world and to bring about a paradise where the whole population of the world will be Shia  Muslims living in peace and harmony. He really believes this ridiculous nonsense. In fact, every time there is a major government decision, he, or one of his personal assistants, takes a letter that explains the situation to the well in Qom and drops it into the well so that the Mahdi can be kept informed. You may think this is crazy (unless you are a 12ther Shia Muslim) but how is this any different from another man believing that God talked to him, or her, and told them to do whatever? (Charles Manson said similar things, as did many people who murdered their children.) How is this any different from a grown person believing that a virgin gave birth or that a person arose from the dead after 3 days? How is this any different from a grown adult believing in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny? (Especially since the whole half-man-half-god, virgin or strange birth at Christmas and resurrection from death at Easter, was an essential part of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Indian mythology, encompassing such “gods” as Hercules, Osiris, Krishna, Mithras, Odysseus, and others? For a great overview on the mythology that Christianity is based upon, read “The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors”).

The idea that someone who believes such incredibly stupid, idiotic and childish myths, lies, and legends could have his finger on the nuclear button is terrifying. Already we have had two religiously moronic Presidents by the name of George Bush (I and II). One said that an atheist should not be allowed to be a citizen of the United States and two put into law the stem cell research ban. This idiocy will eventually mean that not only will George Bush II be responsible for more deaths than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Zedong combined, but he will also be responsible for the loss of an entire generation of stem cell researchers, since any American who might have wanted to go into that field had to either give up their dream and do something else or they had to learn a new language and move to South Korea or some other country with a more scientifically literate leadership. As for George Bush I, he would not have allowed people like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and others to have participated in government, let alone the founding of this nation, since they were all atheists by their own admission or by any reasonable standard. In fact, many of the very founders of this country beyond those mentioned above were, in fact, atheists, contrary to what the morons who keep talking about a “Christian nation” would have you believe. In fact, the Senate unanimously ratified the 1797 Treat of Tripoli that explicitly stated that the United States is not  a Christian nation.  “As the government of the United States of America is NOT IN ANY SENSE FOUNDED ON THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION, …as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen…”

While Romney may not be a Christian in the mind of the Religious Right, he belongs to the Mormon religion. This is a religion that was clearly invented by a man much like Mohammad – a corrupt, conniving, womanizing, lier-and it has been thoroughly debunked by modern science. How anyone who belongs to it can be given any credibility is hard to believe. But then very few Americans actually know what is in the Book of Mormon. (Or, as Mark Twain, another well known atheist quipped, “If you took out all the ‘and it came to passes,’ they could call it the Pamphlet of Mormon.”) And this brings to mind another ludicrous “religion”; Scientology. The only real difference between the nonsense in the Book of Mormon and the beliefs of the Scientologists is that L. Ron Hubbard, who invented Scientology, was very forthcoming when he said, about inventing a religion: “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” (1) The differences between Christianity, Islam, Mormonism, and Scientology consist in the fact that while there almost certainly never was a Jesus Christ (and certainly not a person who was half-God, half-man, who arose from the dead), there almost certainly was the insane, epileptic, barbarian, misogynist, megalomaniac, pedophile named Mohammad who invented Islam and the conniving, con-man, womanizer named Joseph Smith who invented the Mormon religion, and the author L. Ron Hubbard who invented Scientology to improve his personal wealth.

Gingrich may be the smartest person in the room, but his religiosity is obnoxious and abhorrent. In a recent debate he kept harping on how an illegal alien should be accepted into the country if he belonged to a church! And, this from a guy whose personal life is so far from that of the teachings of the Bible that he served divorce papers on his first wife while she was dying in the hospital and cheated on his second wife with the woman who would become his third wife. I guess he converted to Catholicism because he figured if it was good enough for pedophile priests and mafia gangsters, who only had to say a few “Hail Mary’s” or whatever to be forgiven for whatever horrendous crimes they had committed, it was good enough for him.

I used to like Ron Paul because he gets it as far as the Fed is concerned and the general corruption of politicians by big business and lobbyists and he was the Libertarian candidate for a couple of elections. But, the Libertarians believe that abortion is between a woman and her doctor and it is not the business of government. In recent debates, I have heard him state that he believed that states, at least, could outlaw abortion. While he used to say that you could not codify abortion to be illegal, his new stand is obviously a change, and I hope that the Libertarian party does not consider him to be their candidate after he gets washed out from the Republican candidacy. Beyond this problem, while I agree that the United States should terminate its endless policy of interfering in the business of other countries and mind our own business, he clearly does not understand the problems posed by Islam. They don’t hate us because we are buying their oil, or have troops on their lands; they hate us because we are not Muslims. Period. Unless we come to worship Mohammad and his sock puppet Allah, they will hate us and do all that they can to destroy us.

Other problems abound. Romney forced all citizens in Massachusetts to purchase health insurance. This is clearly illegal. But, Obamacare is clearly based on Romneycare. Also, many of the candidates are in favor of “cap and tax”, a policy that would further bankrupt an already bankrupt Western world for a total non-problem called man-made “Global Warming.” This has been proven time and again to be nothing but a fraud and an attempt by the global elite, through the United Nations, to tax developed nations into third world status while doing nothing but enriching the global elite, the banksters and certain individuals.

So, the problem remains. Who can a sane and rational person vote for in 2012?
