I read this assertion in several places today.
The progressives and the Obama regime know that one in four Americans are so poorly educated by our Department of Education and so sufficiently distracted and disinterested as to not be aware of even the most basic scientific concept; that the Earth orbits the Sun.
That explains why a large number will mindlessly accept the empty claims of global warming causing severe cold weather even as they endure the consequences. It is painfully obvious that we have a lot of ignorant people in America and they seem to align themselves with the Democratic Party.
Maybe we need to have a short test before you are allowed to vote. For example, how many individual states comprise the United States Of America and what are the three branches of the Federal Government? If you can’t answer those questions correctly, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote! Just my humble opinion.
