Letter: A multitude of fools
I received the following quote via e-mail, and found it so succinct in its assessment of our current national situation that I felt it worthy of passing along in its entirety and adding my own resounding “Amen” to it. The source was cited as “someone in the Czech Republic.”
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
What do you gain by admitting you’ve been a fool? Wisdom.
Here’s hoping that the multitude is wiser the next time they vote for a leader.
