    Everywhere you look these days, Trump's America is in a rush to embrace the stupid. Multi pronged solutions to difficult problems are eschewed in favour of bumper-sticker simplicities, and tiny sound bites designed for the simple minded. The dignity of statesmanship has been replaced with the loud, arrogant trash talking buffoon. Education is looked upon with distrust as smart people are marginalized as "the educated elite" Who needs education when you can blow up the world??!! The big, fat, loud, ignorant, arrogant, ugly American is today's posterboy in the land of the red white and blue!

    I do sincerely hope there is a countermeasure to this out there somewhere.

    Obama's America was stupid.

    Clinton's America was stupid.
    GW's America was stupid.

    Not sure why it took you so long to come to this realization.

    There must be some evolutionary advantage to it.

    (Or, Godidit that way, as free will doesn't work any other way.)

    Did Americans start 'rushing to embrace the stupid' only after Donald Trump was elected as their President?
    It seems to me that Donald Trump's election was a symptom, not the cause, of Americans 'embracing the stupid'.

    Hush. Just vote Dim and everything will cure itself.

    They believe this with religious fervor.

    America is so screwed.

    You are correct.
    The average American has been a dumbed down version of a retarded Neanderthal for decades.

    It's really strange. You'd think that the mixing of all those races wouldnhave led to a much better gene pool.
    I really can't fathom what the hell went wrong over there.

    Well, I do have a theory...

    In the drive to form a national identity (flag waving, hand on heart, patriotism), they've went too far.

    Whilst Europe went through enlightenment, the US had cowboys. And in the same drive to form a collective identity (white anglo saxon protestant) they didn't shy from genocide (actually used it to form the identity) and slavery.

    The enlightened communist movement of the 20's and 30's was effectively squashed by the right's propaganda (and uncle Joe was just the bat they needed). This, mingled with ever deeper rooted patriotism (which is just another term for nationalism) led to a workforce which was impotent to break free from the dogma they were fed.

    Maybe he should have focused instead on the contrast between the Enlightenment in Europe and the Great Awakening in the US, between the Death of God in Europe and the birth of Creation Science in the USA.

    What thoughtful reflection can you offer on this?

    For all of the talk of how "stupid" Trump's America is... I cannot really believe what Merkel did to Europe.

    How can we consider Europeans the "smart" counterpart to America with what they have done to their continent?
