Belief rather than Reason

in response to reader comment: BELIEF VS. REASON ...

"Obama has brainwashed his followers into operating on 'belief', rather than reason..."

Well put.

But like the voluminous ammont of garbage on the TV these days, if there were not a demand, there would be no provision.

Obama's popularity is evidence of the demand....half of America is long divorced from reality and wants continuation of anything and everything that will allow them to continue living in a bubble of "belief" rather than reason.

I don't believe Obama is completely unaware of this - if only of the power that "bubble" gives to it's champion.
