The authentication of the quote below has been unsuccessfully attempted by many, you are welcome to try. The quote has been passing around the internet and seen on conservative and progressive sites in equal numbers. The importance of knowing how we are perceived by the citizenry of other nations gives us a truer picture of ourselves. What we do with that perception is dutifully up to us. I felt that this quote [valid or not] fits perfectly into an answer that many of us may be asking in recent times. “How did we let this happen?” ….the question that we could ask of many, many issues that are a plague to our society and our republic. My first article shared with Silver Shield addressed our follies in America and those individuals and corporatocracies which promote them. Being aware of the idiocracies we experience during the daily trek thru the world is one step toward exposing them.This quote is believed to have been translated into English from an
article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager
Zeitung of 28 April 2010.

It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
