By Jeff Foxworthy:

 

 

If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned, - you might
live in a nation (state) that was founded by geniuses, but is run by idiots.
WE DO LIVE IN SUCH A DUMB COUNTRY!!

 

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 who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old
girl 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 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.

 

THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE IN ALL UPCOMING ELECTIONS. MOST OF THE IDIOTS RUNNING
THIS COUNTRY SAY ONE THING AND DO THE OPPOSITE KNOWING THAT THE PEOPLE WHO
VOTED THEM IN DO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THEY DO, BUT ONLY WHAT THEY SAY.
