A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots

This might be funnier, if it wasn’t THE TRUTH!

This isn’t party specific!

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots

by Jeff Foxworthy:

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!

How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America !

    • not all of us hold religion. So we do need freedom from religion. Anyways even the religious can’t agree on a uniform freedom. Some religions practice polygamy and others don’t. We need freedom from religion because it is the only standard that lets everyone enjoy their religion or lack of.

      • Freedom of religion allows atheists to enjoy our holidays; Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas. Also, it allows Muslim women to walk around with a hijab, and nuns to walk around with a wimple. It allows people the freedom to pray in a restaurant, and atheists the freedom of choosing not to do so. What a person feels spiritually is a natural right. Oh, and religions are free to have polygamous relationships; they just are not allowed multiple marriage licenses. If I forced you to pray, that would not be freedom of religion because I would be forcing my will on yours. This is what I think, Karl.

      • K the Kommie,

        North Korea has “freedom From Religion” … they have Gulgs and Executions instead.

        This Post Contrasts Geniuses with Idiots …… I don’t think Mr Foxworthy would classify you, based on your anti-religious comment, in the Genius category. So now, what else does that leave ?

      • Read the news most any day Karl, and you can find a Country to move to where you will have all the freedom from religion you want.
