POLITICIANS LACK COMMON SENSE

It’s a fact, schooling is no proof of intelligence, however, many people believe their elected legislators are smart because they have a number of college degrees.

But smarts and degrees often have little in common. A not-so-bright person with a college degree may be schooled,but remains the same not-so-bright person.

On the other hand, some of the smartest have no degrees. Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates come to mind, both were college dropouts, and self-made billionaires in their 20s. Harry Truman had no college degree, but he is considered one of our better presidents.

Washington politicians may have many advanced degrees, but there is a serious lack of smarts and common sense there. Otherwise, we would not be $14 trillion in debt and adding another trillion annually.

This did not “just happen” during President Barack Obama’s administration. It was brought about by many bad decisions by politicians who,  in spite of their degrees, have proved themselves to be, well, not so smart, and not able to take good care of the people’s business.
