11. America is a very shallow country easily titillated
And that is what it is all about. Titillation and sensationalism. If we as a nation think the WWE is the best thing on TV by the rating system then we deserve Rush Limbaugh. America has been transformed from a caring compassionate nation into a cruel "in your face" "pop a cap in your ass" country with absolutely no respect for ourselves or others. That is why Rush Limbaugh has succeeded. People in America need to hate. It is extremely ripe for a fascist takeover.
