  1. What are you trying to say here? All Romney supporters are morons? I’m pretty sure that’s not true. And there’s probably a decent number of morons supporting Obama too.

  2. I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it. – John Stuart Mill

  3. Very sad, the hate shown for such a decent person and support for the most duplicitous presidential candidate in history.

  4. I tend to think this US election offers a choice between a disappointment and a disaster, but i don’t have a vote.

    Can someone please explain to me why being “pro life” seems to involve the right to carry a weapon which can end someone else’s?

  5. So what are you saying here that these people shouldn’t get to vote because their views are reprehensible?
    And you are saying it’s scary based on the assumption that Romney will win.
    There’s this big fear mongering going on about big bad swivel eyed Republican voters as if they are guaranteed to get Romney in the White House and only some mystical force of good can prevent it.
    This is the political tactics of many supporters of left wing parties and politicians. Rant and rave about how terrible and wicked the right wing party are rather than talk about why things will be better if the left wing candidate/party gets/remains in power.
    And woahh, Republican supporters have hateful views shocker!

    1. “So what are you saying here that these people shouldn’t get to vote because their views are reprehensible?”

      No, I’m just publicising a video that shows some shockingly stupid people. I believe in democracy, so that means I believe anyone can vote, however stupid. BUT these interviews reveal that US democracy is severely broken. A democracy is not possible without a free media and an educated electorate. These people are 1) Not well-enough educated to distinguish fact from fiction, 2) Not well enough informed to participate in a democratic process.

      US democracy is on its last legs – these people are merely a symptom of that.

  6. An educated electorate.. You mean an electorate that doesn’t have views like this?
    But surely a democracy is possible even with uneducated electorates holding such views.
    And assuming educating these people will change their views at all.

    1. Again you make unfounded assumptions about my views. The people in the video are clearly not capable of making an informed decision. The same applies to many people I see on Twitter. This isn’t about left/right. Neither of the two candidates are particularly appealing to me – the US “electoral” system ensures that no real choice is available. A vote without choice and a population without information. That’s not democracy or freedom.
