A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots



Attributed to Jeff Foxworthy:

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 or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair 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 the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — 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.

What a country!

How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America!

Was this actually Jeff Foxworthy... or one of those chain emails that attribute it to somebody who didn't say any of it at all?

I don't think it really matters who "composed" it. It speaks the truth.

We know for a fact that it wasn't started by Rex, VB, TigerinATL, Decatur, Kickadog..., etc.

CA, even though it might be decried as Germans, thanks for posting. We need to be reminded at every opportunity.

It is our fault , we have sit back and allowed the liberal intellectuals to run the schools without oversight.Thus the brainwashing of our children is upon us.

We didn't push back or even try to find out what was being taught in school , if it was a...... “ brainwashing technique ” etc.

Every parent should ask the kids if they are being , pressured into thinking certain ways by teachers and if so these teachers should be recorded and reported.

As for the fools who teach college , if the place is a bastion of liberalism , DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD THERE

Our kids are being taught by loons , and if taught by , ungodly , anti-God, loons what will they become ?
RISE UP AND ORGANISE.

I don't care who wrote it. What makes me proud is that I copied it from my middle son.

It is all true. The worst part a out it is that we continue to re-elect the same idiots every chance we get. I weep for our next generation.

Repeating the same logical fallacy in a different way over and over again doesn't make the argument magically fart sparkles and make sense.
