    Considering he recanted his involvement in the KKK and was a tireless champion for liberal causes up until he died at the age of 443, yes, they did.

    "The Democrats" elected him? Yes, "the Democrats" ... in West Virginia.

    It was you who decided to post a photo of Democrats with a huge fire, hooded white robes and a burning cross. You seem to be the one who is anti Democrat.

    The rate which is adjustable is the interest rate, not the value of the house.

    I'm trying to understand how you see the world but I can't make heads or tails of how you could arrive at such a view.

    Who is better informed about the policy choices facing the country—liberals, conservatives or libertarians? According to a Zogby International survey that I write about in the May issue of Econ Journal Watch, the answer is unequivocal: The left flunks Econ 101.

    Zogby researcher Zeljka Buturovic and I considered the 4,835 respondents' (all American adults) answers to eight survey questions about basic economics. We also asked the respondents about their political leanings: progressive/very liberal; liberal; moderate; conservative; very conservative; and libertarian.

    Rather than focusing on whether respondents answered a question correctly, we instead looked at whether they answered incorrectly. A response was counted as incorrect only if it was flatly unenlightened. . . .

    In this case, percentage of conservatives answering incorrectly was 22.3%, very conservatives 17.6% and libertarians 15.7%. But the percentage of progressive/very liberals answering incorrectly was 67.6% and liberals 60.1%. The pattern was not an anomaly.
    FYI - You may need to rethink whatever conclusions you drew from this editorial. The author retracted it.

    I Was Wrong, and So Are You - Daniel B. Klein - The Atlantic

    But one year later, in May 2011, Buturovic and I published a new scholarly article reporting on a new survey. It turned out that I needed to retract the conclusions I’d trumpeted in The Wall Street Journal. The new results invalidated our original result: under the right circumstances, conservatives and libertarians were as likely as anyone on the left to give wrong answers to economic questions. The proper inference from our work is not that one group is more enlightened, or less. It’s that “myside bias”—the tendency to judge a statement according to how conveniently it fits with one’s settled position—is pervasive among all of America’s political groups. The bias is seen in the data, and in my actions.

    Are you suggesting that the Democrats of West Virginia were somehow backward in continuing to re-elect this former KKK member?

    I made no judgement either way. But your statement appears to implicate Democrats in, say, New York of electing Robert Byrd when they had zero say in the matter.

    If there are any left they would be Democrats. I've never heard of anyone but Democrats being in the KKK. Have you?

    What changed with Senator Byrd? He was a Democrat while a KKK big wig and he remained a Democrat after he renounced his KKK beliefs. Those Southern Democrats sure weren't libertarians, nor where they supporters of the Republican Establishment, nor where they middle class executives who voted for Ike. They were classic Democrats, just like union members, except they didn't want to share the socialism spoils with negroes.

    Obstinance, thy name is Grant.

    You said "the Democrats." Did "the Democrats" elect Byrd on a national level to any sort of office?
