Yeah, they no their stuff
No, they probably couldn't name their own governor
I, for one, can not name my own governor.
To be honest, I'm guessing a quarter of the people on this site could name their congressman. Its really ridiculous trying to find people on this site who want to discuss economics, bills, judicial cases, and international affairs. If people do have an opinion, its based off of theory, and not hard numbers. I also notice a lot of people siding wholly with their parties agenda, giving no lee way for middle ground. I, have conceded probably more points then anyone on this site, but I see these people who wont admit their wrong even if 99% of the evidence is weighed down on them. I also notice a lot of repetitive statements. Drop down a hard statistic on someone, and they'll answer you with the same thing that led to the rebuttal. My patience is strained.
It's sad.. People should be more informed about politics then what they are.
The very disappointing reality of DDO is that the "majority" are not informed about politics, American History, World History, Law, etc. Oh, there are several who can quote the sound-bites of a certain news network like a parrot. They are victims of political spin. Bias is also rampant. Few actually know the facts, or care to deal with them!
I will agree with Sweet Tea's assessment, because I am too lazy to write my own. I hope you don't mind sweet, you nailed it anyway
This pretty much applies to America as a whole. I wish it wasn't true, but sadly, it is. The average person will believe whatever they read or see on the news. I mean, it's sad.

Hahah.. So one sided.
