No Wonder Democrats Still Get Elected

Now we know why 18-24 year olds overwhelmingly vote for democrats.

The study found that less than six months after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, 33 percent could not point out Louisiana on a U.S. map.

In the Middle East, 63 percent could not find Iraq or Saudi Arabia on a map, and 75 percent could not point out Iran or Israel. Forty-four percent couldn't find any one of those four countries.

Inside the United States, "half or fewer of young men and women 18-24 can identify the states of New York or Ohio on a map [50 percent and 43 percent, respectively]," the study said.

When the poll was conducted in 2002, "Americans scored second to last on overall geographic knowledge, trailing Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan and Sweden," the report said.

Looks to me that we can congratulate our wonderful government re-education camps (public schools) for these statistics. As long as the left controls academia they will continue to keep our young men and women stupid. That's the only way to guarantee future democrat voters.

This country is in sad shape when the 18-24 age group cannot find New York and Ohio on the map. We need an updated educational system, one that provides geographical information. Once the youth can find our own states, maybe they will be able to locate Iran, Iraq, Israel, etc. What a disgrace that we lag behind the French. Jane
