Idiots stuck with same

 

You can’t fix stupid. Let’s look at we have learned following the elections of 2012.

Nationwide, 21 of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent representatives were re-elected. The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents that were running for re-election. The institution known as the United States Congress has an overall approval rating of nearly 9 percent.

It is indicated that we, as the electorate, are a nation of idiots. Now, we are stuck with the useless, dysfunctional government that we so rightfully deserve.
