    No, it's the liberals. No, it's the conservatives. I've got a better one: it's anyone who says either "no it's the liberals or no it's the conservatives." Those are the folks that are brainwashed.

    Just because it challenges what you hear on MSNBC or Fox News doesn't mean it's some wack job conspiracy theory. Sometimes you have to think a little different. If you haven't noticed, their are alot of "sheeple" in this country and around the world. I'm not talking about people on sites like this one who are active in politics and want to help better the country. We are talking about the people who walk the streets and can't even name the 3 branches of government or can't even point to Asia on a map...

    Just think how better the world would be if people turned off American Idle for a moment and researched political events or wrote to their congressional member.

    Some Americans are brainwashed.
    Many are illiterate.
    But all of this has no meaning.
    The poll is silly and too controlling.
    No vote.

    How is it silly and controlling? You have essentially every option possible, just vote other.

    We are brainwashed every single day.

    I didn't watch the video though so idk what exactly you are talking about.

    I disagree with the member who said we are all brainwashed. I don't buy that because some still have a good grounding in both history and critical thinking, and do not accept what they read or hear without question. Toward that end, where you research is as important as doing it. Those without at least a reasonable grounding in American history are far too likely to accept what some wingnut site puts out as fact. Evenmoreso if the site has nice graphics and pretty graphs and charts.

    I do agree that it is important to inform ourselves and that means not ONLY watching the fluff or reading the daily comic strips. It is also important to know the source and credentials of those putting the website up or the publication out and it is important to follow the money. Bias is okay but it should be bias formed from solid information and not from propaganda and/or wishful ideology.

    In all cases, everybody should be learning both sides of every issue until we are proficient enough to argue either side with equal competence. Only then can we say with confidence that our opinion is informed.

    An informed opinion always supercedes any effort at brainwashing.

    Re: Are Americans Brainwashed?

    As brainwashed as I believe most liberals are, one has to certainly respect any person who has the balls to ardently stand for a political philosophy, whether they were indoctrinated into it or not. The people who I think are pathetic are those who claim to be "centrists" and "independents." Generally speaking, not only are these people not very bright, but they, rather stupidly, feel as though their political indifference confers magnanimity.

    If you have an IQ higher than that of a garden gnome, you're either a left-winger or a right-winger. All this I'm-in-the-middle nonsense is, generally, for educable retards.
