Founded
by Geniuses but is run by idiots

If you can get
arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for
entering and remaining in the country illegally ,…you might live in
a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — ,…you
might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by
idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an
airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and
rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government,… you
might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by
idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding
citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds,
but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in
Egypt,…you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but
is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can
buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces
of a sugary drink might make you fat,… you might live in a nation
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an
80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a
woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and
head searched,… you might live in a nation that was founded by
geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government believes
that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to
spend trillions more,… you might live in a nation that was founded
by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can
be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute,” but
hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is
perfectly acceptable,… you might live in a nation that was founded
by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are
met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion,
while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid
benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones,…you might live
in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If
the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide
incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found,… you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If
you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the
government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage,… you
might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by
idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to
defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government
— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
run by idiots.

What a country!

  1. Well, now that you put it that way, … maybe you could rewrite “might be” and type ” are.”

  2. Ouch I didn’t knew about some of these. Did the one with the seven year old calling a teacher cute really happen?
