Stupidity is the Republican's Primary Strategy [View all]

Or so it seems to me. The Republicans have been actively recruiting stupid and ignorant people. Why? Because they'll vote as they are told without actually thinking about what they're being told. Evidence for this can be found in the widespread beliefs of so many Republicans. Things like:

There is No Global Climate Change
Evolution Has No Evidence
Science Is Always Suspect
Obama is a Muslim
America Is Turning into a Socialist Country
Obama is Responsible for High Gas Prices
Fox News is Fair and Balanced
Everything Wrong is Caused by Illegal Immigrants
Most People with Brown Skin Are Here Illegally
Obama Wants to Take Away Your Guns
Private Insurance Is the Answer to Healthcare
Medicare is Bankrupting the Country

And so on and so on. Those memes have been circulated and recirculated by Republicans everywhere. They're fed to willfully ignorant and stupid people who then post them on Facebook and send them around in forwarded emails. It's the Republican's growth strategy. Spread bullshit by getting willfully ignorant and stupid people to do the grunt work.

Until the Republican Party gives up this notion that the nation can be run by morons, they are doomed to fail. I heartily encourage the Republican Party to continue on this path.
