How is the United States such a powerful superpower and yet Americans seem to be so stupid? I mean, seriously, haven't we all pondered this at one time or another or just about every frickin' day since November, 2016, when 63 million Americans walked into voting booths and pulled the lever for Donald Trump? No matter how dreadful and flawed a candidate Hillary Clinton was, only a simpleton could imagine Trump would turn out to be a better president.
But even before that low point, evidence of American stupidity has been in abundance for decades.
So, for instance:
- Electing Republicans who want to dismantle their health care system - Tolerating a corrupt, undemocratic electoral system - No gun control - Jailing more of their citizens than anywhere else - They watch Fox News - They spend more money on defense - for no reason - Sixty-three million Americans voted for Trump
