Generation after generation, since the American Civil war, Americans have miraculously dodged the fascist bullet. So the average citizen that pays scant attention to history or politics assumes that life in the good old US of A will automatically go on as usual. Many have no idea that they are sitting ducks for a ruthless strongman until it is too late, and even then many misfits among us, with nothing going for them, will wildly embrace it out of sheer boredom.

When 46% of Americans think that the most reckless, dangerous president, one who willingly screws our friends and carries water for our most dangerous enemies must either have a death wish or hasn’t a clue as to what a president’s main duties amount to. Such people, also, must never have become aware of the horrors WWII. God help such a moronic nation.
