Reflections: Americans -- Exceptionally Stupid

Americans of a conservative bent have been drilled to believe that those on the left are the brainwashed ones, marching in lockstep to the beat of totalitarian drums; this is nothing but projection. 
The truth is that conservatism is the ideology of the business class; it is built on marketing techniques. What marketing does is present trusted figures (e.g. Ronald Reagan) to sell people things they don't really need for much more than those things are actually worth. 
You start out buying 20 Mule Team Borax, and you end up buying Trickle Down Economics.
"American Exceptionalism" is Stupidity on Steroids. 
Do the math.
