Just How Stupid Are We?

A successful democracy requires a citizenry that is informed so that it can hold it's government accountable. Author Rick Shenkman goes on CNN to explain how we as a country do not know the basics of our government and the details of what is going on in this nation and the world to make good decisions when it is time to go in the voting booth. I'll be checking out his book and I hope all of you do as well.

Disclaimer: It isn't that we are personally stupid, it is that American politics is stupid and that we need to help change it.
