The American Voter - Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

Current Affairs,Advice,Government
Author Doug Johnson, a prolific writer and blogger published a piece about how the election of Ted Cruz could end up getting Hillary into the oval office. I examined Doug’s article and after visiting his blog realized that this colorful writer was loaded with political savvy and a great deal of insight – but with a tinge of the conspiracy theorist penchant for the – ‘what is really behind the scenes, even though nobody can prove it.’

There was only one point in Doug’s article published on the newly rising ‘Barbwire’ website under the direction of J. Matt Barber that I could not get out of my craw. It had nothing to do with Hillary, but has to do with how the American voters perceive or understand what is being said to them by the various GOP candidates in this election cycle.

Mr. Johnson says that the reason Mr. Trump’s message resounds with so many Americans is because, it is delivered to them on the level of a fifth grader.

Johnson declares, “The GOP candidates were criticized for speaking below a college level at the last debate, with every candidate speaking between a 5th grade and 9th grade level (Trump at the 5th grade level, Cruz at the 9th grade level and everyone else in between), the fact is that anyone who’s studied marketing communications and public speaking knows that you should always speak between a 5th grade and 8th grade level to make it easy to understand. That is also the level that accomplishes the most persuasion.”

After viewing the entire two hour upper tier GOP debate on Tuesday November 10, 2015 almost anyone would come to the same conclusion as Mr. Johnson.

If we boiled Mr. Trump’s assessment of America’s failings down to its essence it would seem that America’s biggest problem is simply – China. If we whip China into shape we are headed for complete fiscal recovery. This is third grade stuff and no higher.

Trump has shown clearly that he is largely a one note candidate, but the politics and the problems in today’s world are currently a symphony being played badly and out of key.

Still others say it is the growing anger with politicians that draws voters to Trump.

I would offer a completely different analysis to explain the Trump phenomenon.

We are simply repeating the mistakes of 2008 and 2012. We chose to believe a campaign slogan that was an undefined promise of something we all felt we needed – change. We hooked on to a pop-culture figure that promised us the moon and the stars and we would not be deterred.

Almost eight years later we see that it is a smoldering heap of broken promises, lies and the deepest trek into immorality both we and our forefathers could have ever imagined.

Today we say men marrying men is peachy, the Keystone pipeline is messy, and America’s rising conviction that abortion is murder and many abortions are genocide is morose. Barack Obama has shown us his change and now anyone with only a speck of conscience remaining is standing in stark unbelief at the “Change we can believe in” slogan of 2008.

It wasn’t the intelligence of a fifth grader that popped the pop culture hero into office – rather it was the lack of discernment that comes after a generation long battering of all that is Biblical Godly and yes, Constitutional.

We were entertained by the tall dark handsome stranger who had a song and dance routine, a big smile and words as smooth as silk. It is pleasant to be entertained and irritating and laborious to pursue the call of our fathers to circumspection, righteousness and morality.

Now the nation is wobbly at home, laughed at abroad and woefully unprepared for the changes that are sweeping the world while leaving the once most influential nation in history in an anachronistic neutral ground of impractical and dangerous liberalism and weakness.

Upwards of sixty million Christians either stayed home or refused to see, that when they pulled the lever for Barack Obama in 2008 and again in 2012, they were calling for the death of more innocent American babies and pulling down the darkest moral decline to befall any nation in this world’s history. Steeped in apostasy and lethargy they passed the buck to the wonderful world of entertainment to provide the gypsy magician with a chance to lead the nation.

Now, in 2016 the magic show seems to be starting, yet, once again as we think the answer to all of Obama’s failed prestidigitation is to vote in a man who’s ego took ten billion dollars to build and then sit back and relax as the fairy dust settles down and creates the warm glowing nation that once again will be - “great.”

Trump waived off the Governor of one of our most populace states whose record as an innovator and economist is unparalleled with an arrogant flick of the wrist and these unforgettable words - “I have built a company worth billions and billions of dollars, I don’t have to listen to this guy” He was immediately booed.

If a Governor doesn’t have much to say to the mighty billionaire then how much does Trump care about the poor laborer, the single mom or anyone in the low income bracket?

Lest we forget, Kasich pulled Ohio out of an eight billion dollar deficit and at one time reduced U.S. government spending by 160 billion dollars. This is something everyone benefited from, not just one man. Kasich was serving others – not himself.

This is not the response of a great man, how can Donald Trump lead the nation to greatness.

My father taught me that any fool with money can make money; I learned that men who are not great do not know how to make nations great - quite on my own.

One of my most trusted friends says that Trump acts like a schoolyard hero empowered by the muscles of his billion dollar ego. I cannot mitigate nor find much of an argument against my friend’s quaint but effective assessment.

It is here that I will have to concede to Doug Johnson’s assessment of the American voter. We are not smarter than a fifth grader.

This writer neither created nor defined what stupidity is, but I discovered years ago that if we look at what the wisest man once said about wisdom and look at its exact opposite we find a unique but sadly tragic truth. The great King Solomon said:

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9: 10)

It follows that disregarding God and giving up any knowledge of him and his counsels can lead to only one thing – the beginning of stupidity.

This kind of stupidity started a generation ago with liberalism and has led up to Barrack Obama. All that followed his administration is what resulted and now the most serious question we can ask is - is history about to repeat itself via the latest GOP pop-culture star - Mr. Donald Trump.
