Reader: America Seems to Get More and More Stupid Every Year

When we shared our most recent post about State Representative Gordon Klingenschmitt, who recently said gays have lost their soul and suggested that a man killed three young Muslims because they think like Christians, we asked readers how they feel Colorado looks to people around the country after the election of the man nicknamed Dr. Chaps.

Not great, according to plenty of those who responded.

One person saw Klingenschmitt's rise to elected office as an indictment of more than just the voters in his district.

Here's what he had to say.

It only goes to show just exactly how stupid people really are. America seems to be getting more and more stupid every year. Go ahead and get mad at that statement, but ake a look at the the people that have been voted into office all around the country — and then take a look at all of the ignorant lazy morons who *don't* vote.
