Why do Americans think everything is planned in advance? A Conspiracy?

When I look at US leaders, D and R alike, they seem just dumb as dogsh*t, unable to get laid in a brothel. Ordinrary Americans are not a lot better, or they wouldn't elect the 'tards they do. :-(

    It is only a "conspiracy" if it isn't planed by the Democrats!

    The problem here is that the nature of elections have changed to where only well funded people who go into office owing a million favors can get elected. Do please look at the slate of candidates we had to pick from in 2020 and tell me which candidate wasn't either corrupt as hell or with some tiny third party that didn't stand a chance. When all your choices are bad ones you can't really blame the voters for just holding their noses and picking one (or not voting at all).

    The more plausible a conspiracy theory is, plus the greater the desire to find one, the greater the likelihood one w/ significant traction will develop. This equation is pretty consistent. Virtually anyone can start one w/ what is typically at our disposal. Conspiracy theories fill a void for people easy to excite and dissatisfied w/ "the way it is". They tend to place an inordinate value on their opinion.
