The Advantages of a Poorly Educated Population

hear no evil, see no evil, say no evil 

Reasons why the country benefits from a poorly educated populace:

1.  More people vote for the TEA Party -  the less you know, the more conservative you generally are.  You won't want change because you don't know what change would cause, you generally would not be aware of all the nuances inside our political system. 

2.  Our national leaders can lead us more easily.  We are more likely to be influenced if we are less educated. The less you know, the more you will go along with the program - because you won't be aware of the bad part of what your politician is trying to sell you.

3.  The populace will ask less questions when a new law comes in.  A great example is the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" story - there weren't enough people to demand the truth... so the President and his people (Bush etc) were able to tell us whatever they wanted and we went along with it.  The less educated you are the less likely you will ask questions.  Its easy to believe a lie if you don't have all the information - or the skills to figure out what people are really telling you...

4.  The rich will get even richer.  The rest of the people will not question why the rich get so many tax benefits because people who are less educated as less questions!

5.  It would be so much easier to vote Sarah Palin into office.  She would find a Dick Cheney clone for VP and we would have the Bush Years all over again!
