Why Do Logically Challenged People Always Vote Republican?

I just Googled this question and it seems many people out there in the land of the Internet have also pondered this phenomenon. We, who have lived as middle class citizens all our lives (you know we, the lucky ones, who have managed, by the skin of our teeth, to hold on to the status the mega-rich often refer to as, The Bourgeois.) want to know why people in the same situation as us, turn their backs on logic and vote for the rich people's party. Why don't these poor chumps possess the ability TO THINK?

One answer may be as simple as ‘indoctrination’. They were raised in a bedrock of brainwashing; by familes who cannot think outside the confines of a narrow cardboard box, to the establishments they attend like church, church schools and, oh maybe, their local KKK.org. These people are told (by folks they consider the AUTHORITY) you must obey our rules if you wish to be included as one of us; And being submissive is (what they’ve been taught) the best way to make it through a life of destitution.

If you've seen my last post Thom Hartmann's Tea Party's Guerrilla Warfare Tactics Video, Deleted From Youtube there's a video I put up on youtube describing how the republican rich are throwing money at The Tea Party so that its peonage can go around, using seminars, to teach dirty tricks that will keep the GOP in power. In essence, it's the Horatio Alger's Story that there's dignity in being poor: “BE PROUD WHILE YOU SUFFER” and make sure that the rich keep on getting richer because someday you might be rich too. Don't worry, in the meantime, we will reward you with a low paying subservient job that is guaranteed to keep you slipping downward into the Billionaire’s Utopian Dream of HOMELESSNESS for all.

It is a truly frustrating state of affairs because there is no way to gain access to these closed minds. When confronted with words from those who can critically THINK, they run away to their habitats of safety and turn on Rush Limbaugh or Fox News to drown out what they believe to be insanity and listen to the soothing words of intolerance, hatred and convoluted logic.

Below Bill Maher on his July 8th 2011 show ‘Real Time’ reflects on this same perplexing question… Very funny but with sad overtones.

"Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative."
