    Hmm. Some people are wound way too tight.
    If you happen to post something worth discussing I will consider it. But probably I won't.

    LOL. Marxists identify their worst traits as belonging to others. Sis(s)y is very liberal.

    Why are those who call themselves "Conservative" so often uneducated?

    It is apparent from the posts I read, that "Conservatives" have little knowledge of history or economics, all the while claiming that their views are the only ones which matter.

    Sometimes the problem lies with you. Many of the things you know aren't so.

    We all suffer from it relative to others. Every one of us know some things very well and know other things incorrectly.

    Now there's a massive generality. Perhaps it's because people on this forum who call themselves conservative are, demographically speaking, older than others and further away from their college brainwashing classes.

    Why do so many on the right rant and rave about the "librul indoctrination centres" known as universities? I particularly wonder about this when I look at the loudest voices on the right. Many of them quite proudly display their various advanced degrees - citations that they gained from one or more of those "librul indoctrination centres" It does appear that all of that indoctrination and brain washing was rather ineffective, or maybe, just maybe - it was never there to begin with.

    Why? Because studies show it to be true:

    College faculties, long assumed to be a liberal bastion, lean further to the left than even the most conspiratorial conservatives might have imagined, a new study says.

    By their own description, 72 percent of those teaching at American universities and colleges are liberal and 15 percent are conservative, says the study being published this week. The imbalance is almost as striking in partisan terms, with 50 percent of the faculty members surveyed identifying themselves as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans...

    The findings, by Lichter and fellow political science professors Stanley Rothman of Smith College and Neil Nevitte of the University of Toronto, are based on a survey of 1,643 full-time faculty at 183 four-year schools. The researchers relied on 1999 data from the North American Academic Study Survey, the most recent comprehensive data available.

    That's merely a guess...let's see how it plays out.
    for the GOP's sake, hopefully better than it did in November of 2012 ...

    Don't be silly.

    I think they're liberal because they've never had to live in the real world. They make phenomenal salaries; have tenure; fabulous retirement programs; excellent healthcare plans. "What's the problem?" they're most likely to believe.

    That, combined with the neigh-unto worshiping adoration they get from young people, gives them a completely warped outlook on real world problems of the working man.
