'Get A Brain': Michele Bachmann Says A 'Biblical Basis For Society' Is The Key To Happiness

On the latest episode of his "Foundations of Freedom" series, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton was once again joined by former Rep. Michele Bachmann, this time for a discussion on "The Bible, Competition and Choice."

The two agreed that God created competition, within a biblical framework, for the good of mankind and Bachmann helpfully summed up the entire discussion by saying that anyone who cannot see that needs to "get a brain."

"You could summarize it by saying, 'Get a brain," Bachmann said. "I mean, that's kind of what it is. Get a brain and figure it out. Don't you want to live better? Don't you want to be more prosperous? Don't you want to be happier? Don't you want to be free? Don't you want poor people to do well? Don't you want to love your neighbor? If you want all those things, David, you would embrace competition with both arms and you'd want a biblical basis for your society just like the Pilgrims, through their example, gave us, that they embraced for us, just like George Washington and the founders, when they dedicated this nation to God at the inauguration, in the very first seconds of life of this country."
