'You can't fix stupid' , because no electorate in the world is as stupid as the American voter. Just ask the world watching 40 per cent of the US electorate known as Trump supporters.
Stupidity extends to American lifestyle, a people that are consumed by self serving pleasure seeking , whether its searching out prescription drugs, the US consumes 75 percent of the world's prescription drugs, street drugs Mexico as a country is ruined by drug gangs feeding the US addiction to drugs , fast food junk food eaters ,60 percent of Americans are obese, or a day running their credit cards to the limit at the mall, Americans owe over a 1000 billion dollars of high interest credit card debt. No one can hold a candle to the collective stupidity of Americans.
You can't teach anything to a people that wear stupidity as a badge of honor. Forget the 'baby boomer generation', 'generation X' ,'the millennials', todays Americans should be called 'generation stupid'.
