Of course I've seen this and other similar videos before... none of it surprises me at all. Barry got elected because people were ignorant and didn't get the facts. Obama had no experience... he attended an anti-American/Racist church for twenty years! He didn't renounce his uncle Jerry until he had to. Michelle, the Wookie-in-Chief, said that "as a black man, Barack could be killed at a gas station" Fuck you Michelle... anyone could be killed you bitch!
To me, this just proves how easily manipulative the general population is. This does not, however, convince me that people who voted for Obama ALL did it for stupid reasons. It does show, though, that this idea that people, in general, are well informed is retarded. People are idiots, and the Democrats have become master manipulators. This is why Obama won. If the Republicans were better at manipulation, they would have won.
Side: Manipulation is bipartisan
SHEEP FOLLOW THEIR MASTER , SHEEP OBEY THEIR MASTER, SHEEP POOP LIKE ANY OTHER ANIMAL , BUT SHEEP POOP STINKS! SHEEP NEED TO BE TAKEN CARE OF, SHEEP EAT WHAT IS ON THE GROUND ALONG SIDE THEIR POOP! SHEEP ARE EASY TO CONTROL. AND THAT IS WHAT THE LIBERAL PARTY WANTS....

I think you would largely get the same results if you questioned the supporters of nearly any presidential candidate. In fact I believe there was a similar video about Palin supporters. People in general are not very informed about either congress itself, or the policies of the people they are voting for. I don't think people are solely to blame. Our current political system makes it difficult to stay informed.
How many people on here, in all honesty, could name their state representatives, nonetheless know what kind of policies they support?
I can name my state representative. He is from a town about 20 miles away. His name is Brad Lager. Congressman Sam Graves lives in my teeny tiny town. He is a small town farm boy. He is going to run for senate 2012.
But you are right, most people are very uninformed.
Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
