In the election one month ago, various polls found between sixty and seventy percent of the people who voted for Bush believed in things that are 100% factually untrue and did not happen (such things like: there WERE wmds in Iraq, the US FOUND wmds in Iraq, Hussein was involved in 9/11, no torture occurred in Abu Gharib--it was all media spin, etc). These beliefs are probably in even higher percentiles with the evangelicals who voted for Bush. The belief in, and of, untrue and non-real things, in my opinion, falls directly into the definition of insanity.
Definitions such as:
Insanity--extreme folly or unreasonableness; something utterly foolish or unreasonable. (Merriam-Webster)
Insanity--when something is not sensible and is likely to have extremely bad results (Cambridge Int. Dictionary of English)
Insanity--is the condition of being in some way mentally "out of touch" with the real world or with "normal" human functioning...Historically, the behaviour of people who would now be regarded as mentally ill has often been interpreted in a religious way...Some people disagree with common modern ideas about insanity, thinking that some who are deemed insane by society are truly gifted by God, and misunderstood among the unbelieving masses. (Wikipedia)
Insanity--(Law) Such a mental condition, as, either from the existence of delusions, or from incapacity to distinguish between right and wrong, with regard to any matter under action, does away with individual responsibility. (Webster's Revised Unabridged, 1913 Edition)
Insanity-- irrationality, unreason (WorldNet 1.7)
So if these people continually believe in unreal and untrue things, and it becomes a daily pattern reinforced by the shrill propaganda of Fox News and the right wing radio talkers, it is pretty much a done deal that the majority of our country is a bunch of insane people. We are surrounded by them.
The charasmatic evangelical leaders, like the Falwells, the Robertsons, the Dodsons, only make the situation worse. By brainwashing their complacent followers into Robots for Christ who are totally incabable of free thinking or free will to discern the unreality of their beliefs, making our country: The United States of Insanity.
