    I think you would have a difficult time showing that people who lack the abilities I just listed would be more likely to vote for a Democrat than those who don't. Other than an extreme example or two, do you have some evidence that your supposition is correct?
    I believe that during the past four years it would be easier to provide extreme examples from the Democrats than it would from the Republicans. The obvious differences between the demeanor of Tea Party and the OWS movement would tend to support that point of view.

    There are some examples in the OWS movement, to be sure. On the other hand there are some interesting examples in the elected officials of both parties. On the one hand, there's Maxine Walters. On the other hand, there's Rick Perry.

    Then there are the pundits who cheerlead from the sidelines: Limbaugh, and Savage on the one side; Rhodes on the other side.

    No, I think both parties have some examples of shall we say, lack of rational thought?

    All those named have rational thought and have risen to some powerful poisitions with the support of a great many people, iand you may agree or disagree with them.

    But when it comes to the masses there is no doubt that the groups which support the left, the democrats, behave in a far more irrational manner and are far more responsible for public mischief than are Republican supporters. I shouldnt need to provide links to that as it is self evident. Surely intelligence, and public responsibility, has to play a part in these differences.

    I'm sure you thought the same about the people in the 60's participating in the civil rights movement and peace rallies. Thank goodness someone is willing to speak up when they think a crime is being committed. Call it irrational if you want, I call it an American's duty. And, yes, civil disobedience is often part of that.

    Be glad it's not Republicans, they'd probably show up with guns instead.

    Yes, there's those radical Democrats ranting about how a woman who wants birth control included in her medical insurance plan is a whore and a slut who wants the taxpayers to pay for her sex.

    as one example.

    Perhaps, but we weren't speaking of "one example".

    My contention is that Republican supporters tend to be more intelligent than those who support the Democrats. Thanks for helping me make my case.

    so, you think that those civil rights demonstrators were unintelligent?

    Does that mean you think they were wrong?

    Personally, I think both sides are a bunch of delusional idiots. The Republican side, in general,have imaginary friends and the Democrat side thinks the world owes them free stuff. I disagree with both sidea, both are irrational.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
