User:Alansohn/Ashkenazi intelligence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psychometrics research has found that Ashkenazi Jews have the Highest mean score of any Ethnic group on standardized tests of general intelligence, at roughly one half to one standard deviation Higher than the mean of the general white population....."
Ashkenazi Jews have made Disproportionately Large contributions to presumably Intellectual pursuits.
Though they are about a ¼ of 1% of the world's population, they comprise 28% of Nobel Prize winners in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, and Economics, - and have accounted for More than HALF of world Chess Champions.
In the United States, Ashkenazi Jews represent less than 2% of the population, but have won 40% of the Nobel Prizes in science awarded to U.S. citizens, and 25% of all Turing Awards.
A significant decline in the number of Nobel Prizes awarded to Europeans and a corresponding increase in the number of prizes awarded to U.S. citizens occurred at the same time as Nazi persecutions of Jews drove them from Europe during the 1930s and the Holocaust reduced their number in Europe during the 1940s.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
(This is beside the point that nobody, not even scientists, have the ability to digest such massive amounts of extremely complex data, and the fact that they think they can is part of the problem... but let's not get into that now.)
I really like Huntsman. He's sensible, not batty, and is a fiscal conservative/social liberal like me.
If was nominated, I would vote for him (If I can) instead of Obama
He's by far the best GOP candidate, though I'm afraid his chances are rather slim
