6. Beats me

The American public has truly puzzled me since Reagan was elected. I know we keep saying they're stupid, but I still don't get why they vote the way they do. If they're so uninvolved in politics that they don't know or care to know shit then why do they even bother to vote?

Every 4 years the 'undecideds' are courted like their votes are the precious votes that will decide who wins and they're given interviews and they act as if they're still deciding based on some highly intelligent questions they have. In reality if they're so uninformed because if they haven't decided who they're voting for then they really are too stupid to vote.

And the other thing that makes me pull my hair out is why don't they know even the most basic history of what party has done what and what each party stands for.

I could turn this into a real rant so I'll stop. I'm sure you get my point.
