Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes from quite possibly the biggest dumbass in Congress, even with the competition from Steve King, Allen West and Michele Bachmann, and that is Louis Gohmert of Texas. He participated in a conference call for Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America and unleashed this bit of stupid:
Yes, yes, yes. We had the garden of Eden in this country, delivered from Jesus himself when he delivered the King James Version of the Constitution to a praying George Washington on the banks of the Potomac. And we’d still have it, if it weren’t for those pesky liberal heathens!
The truth is if you look at great nations, great civilizations, great powers throughout recorded history, when they’ve passed some of the milestones we have as a nation, that was the sign that they were toward the end of their existence…
There is so much that is so critical to whether or not this country continues, the greatest gift of a country to any people in history: more liberties, more individual freedoms and values, ease of living, quality and standard of living than even more than Solomon’s Israel. No explanation as to why we’ve been so blessed other than the people who went before us were blessed, they followed God’s rule book, in our founding they followed biblical teachings. We strayed away at different times, Andrew Jackson’s time was not a great time, at different times slavery was a blot on our existence, but the trouble is we have never as an entire nation overall been so far away from God’s teaching and so openly rebelling, even from the top, against God’s teachings in the Bible.
