Sliding Down The Pole

“I learned that it pays to hang around with people better than you are, because you will float upward a little bit. And if you hang around with people that behave worse than you, pretty soon you’ll start sliding down the pole. It just works that way.” Warren Buffett

I think that the Republican Party thinks that plenty of voters are stupid, crazy, and angry white men. There is some overlap of course, but here’s how I see it:

  • Sarah Palin stumps for the stupid vote.
  • Glenn Beck stumps for the crazy vote.
  • Rush Limbaugh stumps for the angry white male vote.
Why does the Republican Party have such a low opinion of so many American citizens? The answer is votes. And the dumber, crazier, and angrier The Republican machine can make the average American citizen become, the more votes they can get. Cutting funding for worthwhile government programs, especially education, helps to increase the Republican voter pool. It has become a cycle of more stupid, more crazy, and more angry. And the country slides even further down the pole.
