These coal country voters backed Trump. Now they’re worried about losing Obamacare.
The sad truth is that the standard for public education in the US has been dropping steadily for the last several decades, leaving even high school graduates seriously under informed or misinformed about the world at large, and some important specifics.
Back in prehistory when I was in high school in Canada in the '70's - we had family from Phoenix come up to visit and I got to spend a couple of weeks with a cousin my age.
It was pretty apparent even then that there were huge differences in our two educations systems. I knew every state in the US, along with capitals, and she wasn't even aware that Canada had provinces, let alone wasn't wintry all year round - and there were equal huge gaps in her education about the rest of the world geography and history.
Along with the difficulty of getting into post secondary education down there, this all adds up to what we have today, an ignorant, poorly educated main population who are a dream to manipulate by media and govt.
To be honest, I saw something like this coming from the days of Reagan.
Idiocracy actually turned out to be prophetic.
And if we're really unlucky, and Trump dies in office his Veep will make sure that A Handmaids Tail is also prophetic.
This is very possibly the most dangerous time for the integrity and survival of the US since it's founding.
The Senate voted down the amendment 52-46, with two senators not voting. Unusually, the vote was not purely along party lines: 13 Republicans joined Sanders and a majority of Democrats in supporting the amendment, while 13 Democrats and a majority of Republicans opposed it.
One of those Democrats was New Jersey’s Cory Booker, who is considered a rising star in the party and a possible 2020 presidential contender.
