***Are AMERICANS Really this STUPID??

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJuNgBkloFE&NR=1

You will be shaking your head after you watch this. Any wonder why there are people out there blindly voting for McCain?

Heres why.

P.S. Notice where the interviewer has IRAN on the map, and tell me why no one seemed to notice that it isnt in the middle of the ocean at the bottom of the world.

Man...

I got every question except the one about Kofi Annan (I've never kept track of the UN so I don't feel too bad.), but I realize now most of my family couldn't answer the majority of these questions... : (

KFC

Yes, I know, the answers are utterly ridiculous, but I wanted to clear one of the questions up because the reporter is obviously ignorant on one point.

Kentucky Fried Chicken is not from Kentucky.

Kentucky Fried Chicken was founded in Salt Lake City, UT.

And yes, I am pretty sure I could answer correctly on every question they asked in that video.

KFC founded in Utah?

I don't think so. I've been to the original one in Corbin, KY.

Thus inwardly armed with confidence in God and the unshakable stupidity of the voting citizenry, the politicians can begin the fight for the 'remaking' of the Reich as they call it.

YES!

I didn't even have read what this post is about to reach my conclusion.

Our next target: Italy, France, Germany, Canada! Wow!!!

Australia and New Zealand had better watch out before a bunch of American mercenaries decide to go and attack Iran and North Korea!

"Wow, I never realized how big North Korea was compared to South Korea!"

Unblooodybelieveable!

Most are.

and unfortunately, they vote Forrest Gump-style: Stupid is as stupid does.

Which explains the statist quo ante.

It also explains the battle we face.

"Welcome to 2008: The Year of Ron Paul!"

leaders know it...

"How lucky for those in power that people don't think."

Hitler

this is true

since i travel a bit i find that americans are for the most part fking stupid. my 15 year old son could answer all those questions as a matter of fact i show it to him a while back as this video is not new he just laugh. oh by the way he supports ron paul as do most on his high school football team to bad they cant vote. kids are a lot smarter than most adults. ps my son and his friends ahve watch freedom to facism and money as debt they loved it and i was surprise after at how intelligent these kids are. thats where we start to make a change.

Australia was any country the interviewer wanted it to be :-)

I showed the video to a Russian family in St. Petersburg. They could not speak English but even they could answer most of the questions better.

For instance, "what state is KFC from". They knew KFC meant "Kentucky Fried Chicken" and the word for state in Russian is Staat. So they had that answer.

Religion (Religia) in Israel (Israel) they knew not to be Muslim (Musselman).

What really floored them was when they kept believing that Australia was whatever country the interviewer said it was.

Russia has one of the best education systems in the world, so maybe I am being unfair. ;-)

This is all relevant because it explains a lot why Ron Paul is not the front runner.

I will guarantee you that every single one

of those Americans attended a public school.

You could do the same interviews in most countries I would guess. Except Americans would be by far the worst at Geography. That guy didn't even know where the US was to try and find Iran!!
At least we Canadians know where we are on a map - find the US and go up.

But You See, That Won't Work -- Alaska Is North Of You

Vote RON PAUL 2008
____________
And then there's Hawaii to consider // all part of the good ol' USA.

My suggestion is turn left where the old oak tree used to be, down there by the Smith house that burned down years before you were born -- after that keep going straight until the language sounds a bit different.

-- Jest funnin' w/ya sum.

Vote RON PAUL 2008

no you couldnt.

i was born in spain and i visit europe people know more about american politics and world politics than most college grads. its a different culture they dont spend all day in front of tv's they go to the cafe where they talk and learn opinions from other people.

Europeans

Europeans may indeed be smarter when it comes to geography and current affairs but their political choices (socialist policies in most countries) leaves much to be desired.

stoopid

Americans are getting fatter and stoopider by the day. My neighbors are lazy bums. Just look who they're 'all' voting for. Protect yourself and work for freedom and liberty.

Most are ignorant from choice or exposure to

our "wonderful" education/indocrination system in the U.S. Oh Brave New World, with such people in it. It shows that our main task is education.

Some are

Jay Leno use to do a bit like that on his show. It was unbelievable how, I don't like the word stupid, how uninformed people are.

.

Americans Aren't That Stupid

Yes, some are, but I continue to believe in my fellow man. Did you notice that they didn't put in any videos of people who actually got the questions right?

I have seen this guy before. He does a lot of bits where he comes to the USA and films "dumb Americans" for Australian TV.

Anyway, the Aussies have some some dumb ones too. Take a look:

The British are rather arrogant too.

depressing

you just made me depressed... thanks!

Ignorant

http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/primaries/results/state/#FL

six-tenths of 1 percent of the registered voters of FLA went to the polls and voted for Ron Paul.

One out of 180 people.

Ignorant to the cause of small government and personal liberty? Absolutely. -JP

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

But You're Basing Your Numbers On What Exactly?

Vote RON PAUL 2008
___________
Basing this reported data on what -- what you read (what we are being told) in MSM? Numbers (facts and figures) generated by what means of tabulation -- DIEBOLD machines?

Perhaps you need to sit back (takes about 1-1/2 hours) to watch this outstanding documentary:
Hacking Democracy
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7907810896542492471...

Vote RON PAUL 2008

Not what I read or was told, wake up.

I took out the calculator and applied the 10.2 million registered Fla voters pointed to in the link, computed RP's vote percentage, and drew out 1 in 180 to demonstrate the percentage.

Ignorant that the most peace and prosperity are only possible through small government and individual liberty --- this is what the overwhelming majority of Americans are.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -
http://www.thephilosophyofliberty.com/

Yes, they are.

The most difficult thing for the average American to admit is the limit of their intellect and knowledge. That, or their penis size. But hey, there's hope. Watch TV...you'll see at least a half dozen enzyte commercials...

As for me, well, I am man enough to admit I don't know everything. I never have, and never will. I have embraced that everyone, no matter who they are, has something valuable to teach me. I am a perpetual student, and I am damn proud of that.

As for the other thing...well, that's none of your business!

I think there are to major problems in the US

The first is that our educational system allows idiots to graduate. People are pushed through the system. This is not the case in most developed countries.

I have my Master's in education (I am currently not teaching). One paper I wrote in grad school was about the educational systems in Japan, Finland, New Zealand as compared to the US.

Every American should do this research because it is truly sad what our system considers education and how someone can "graduate" while they know absolutely nothing. It is not so in the other countries.

.
.
The second is that our media is very good at brainwashing. So you take a dumbed down population from our educational system and feed them mindless nonsense, and the result is that video.
.
.
Now you can say it was edited or staged, but I would bet that if you took to the streets and conducted your own interviews, you would get similar results....sadly, many Americans are ignorant.
.
.
It is easy for the establishment to push their agenda through.....there is little resistance.

The short answer to your question ...

Yes ..
Do some canvasing if your not sure ..
It will realy make you stop and wonder ..

ahhh the irony.

...please tell me it was intentional.

your joking, write?

Nope ..

As an example: A common misconception seems to be that:

Iraq not only had WMD but actualy used them against our troops.
I have run into that numerous times ... Try reasoning with someone who believes stuff like that ... and where do they get it from?

How about the ones that think voting for Hillary will make Bill president again which is good because Bill will bring back all the jobs that went to Mexico and China ... Ever try explaining to people like that about who signed NAFTA ...

Then how about the Al Gore zombies that think the ocean is going to rise up from the beach and drown the whole city ... ARGGGGG its like a cheap 1950s Japanese horror movie out there ....
Must be something in the water ..

WOW
