The Justification for Mediocraty
This was a post made in response to Bob Cesca’s column on Huffington post about Sarah Palin’s reply today.
“Yep he nailed it ! with a heightened, and pasty superiority complexion !”
You can read Bob’s excellent post here:
Here’s my relpy:
“What is so wrong with having people in charge of the country who are educated and well read? People who actually take time to research topics and make decisions based upon reason rather than emotion?”
“What I find really odd is that there is a segment of society that hasn’t gone on to college to learn more about the country we live in, will proudly suggest that those who won’t take the time to read up on current events and be educated about the important decisions that must be made should have an equal voice in our democracy. Now I am sure that I will get all kinds of grief for that statement but hear me out:”
“Who do we want making decisions to move our country forward? Those who have taken the time to educate themselves and stay on top of current events or those who think that having a decent perspective of history and current events are just elitists? I just don’t understand that mentality. It’s like saying,”I’ve got a doctor with credentials from Harvard Medical School who is telling me I need to have an operation to save my life. Yet I listen to some random, middle America person with no medical degree and no real understanding of the serious nature of my issue. He tells me, “Don’t get surgery. They’re all quacks!” It’s illogical.”
