“College Students Fail to Name a Single U.S. Senator”
I’m not sure if this is the impact of an educational paradigm that has completely dumbed down potentially fertile minds by way of filling them with bumperstickerish liberal pablum, or — alternately — an encouraging sign that such an attempt at “re-education” by the campus Marxist cabal is being met with perfunctory and superficial compliance, and then its content immediately forgotten.
Students are so turned off by national politics that they refuse even to allow ancillary factoids about its operations drift over their mental transoms. Similarly, they’ve been so poorly informed about the very structure of constitutional republicanism and the workings of their own government that they haven’t a clue how government works — and as a result, don’t seem much to care.
Some may be quick to bemoan this state of affairs. Me, I see it as an opportunity for an engaged and motivated liberty movement to take root where right now sits only bindweed and the loosest of intellect mulch.
No wonder both parties are so keen on killing the TEA Party. Having missed their chance to abort it, they’re now trying to strangle it in its crib.
