Yes, most humans are far too ignorant to vote, and yes 
it is intentional, for the mainstream news media are 
misleading the proletariat, not just in the US but
everywhere news media exist.  This thing about finding
England on a map is not a good argument however.  Regardless
of where you go on this planet, you still hafta go to the 
same airport.  Any nation can trade with or make war on
any other country anywhere on the globe.  It makes no
where it is.  Secondly, they don't let US citizens vote
in England's elections anyway.  Thats how the war started
in the first place (the one that happened 230 yrs ago).

Point well taken however.  I am astounded daily at how
profoundly dumb our species is or is becoming.
