We keep hearing in the aftermath of the Brexit and Trump decisions, that the uneducated poor, stupidly made the wrong choice.
Do people really believe, that if you have a college or university education, that it makes you smarter than the average joe,?.
If so, therefore you can only become smart by being schooled by experts, so you can then vote correctly.
And what about the poor, they must be stupid, the rich don't get rich by being stupid, right,?.

Sense is anything but common Wink Voting does, however, tend to reveal the pulse of the nation and indicate the health of its people and practices.

I'm not trying to defend the so called stupid voters choices, I'm questioning the narrative that the uneducated masses are stupid for not going along with the elites/medias proposed narrative. And the voters, in the USA vote, had a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea, and only time will tell what the prescient choice was. But it's the quiet acceptance of this narrative that bothers me. Its starting to look like it's not only the power brokers these days whom imagine themselves to be elitist. This sheeple type meme, is in danger of creating an underclass, it's making debate redundant, and maybe that's the rub. Also, five senses are common to everyone, and everyone has common sense as a rule, sure there are exceptions to the rule, and we all take turns on that exception.

The expression is to go with your gut....this form of intestinal fortitude has nothing to do with digestion and everything to do with the "feel" that knowing bestows on the individual sufficiently sensitive to sense its presence, fluctuations and meaning.
