As if we needed any more proof that the Moron-American voting bloc is hopeless, a new survey finds that Americans are more likely to know the names of the five members of the television Simpson Family than they are the five rights enumerated in the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
Only 28% could name more than one freedom embodied in the First Amendment. Think about that, only 28%. Oddly enough, a full 20% said that the freedom to own pets was one of the five freedoms.
The BFEE must be working on the theory that if people don't know what they have, it'll be really easy to take it away from them. They won't even miss it. And they have been hard at work, chipping away at that problematical (for them) First Amendment. Watch for even more chips to go flying off in the next couple of years -- unless we stop them!
BTW, the five are as follows:
- Freedom of speech
- Freedom of religion
- Freedom of the press
- Freedom of assembly
- Freedom to petition for redress of grievances
