Sad

I've become so jaded by the sheer stupidity of most conservatives that it drives me insane to read or even listen to conservatives. Deep inside I know I should read and listen to conservatives to be able to counter their stupidity but it seems so vast and overwhelming that it makes me scream. I constantly am reminded of John Stuart Mills quote:

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, in a Parliamentary debate with the Conservative MP, John Pakington (May 31, 1866)

F-One
