Of course, that's just one study, but your notion that the liberal core base consists primarily of parasitic government dependents who simply want to take more from the rich is arguably false.

    You've also fallen into the trap of making the bogus assumption that I meant educated to mean smart, and that liberal = Democratic.
    two of the biggest dem support groups are teachers and lawyers-groups that have usually a college degree and an advanced degree. Those who teach tend to be among the least gifted intellectually among college majors. The dems also dominate the preference of people with low IQs and low rates of HS graduation. Why? because teachers and lawyers and professors often are either working for the government or do better in left win controlled governments. Republicans tend to do best among entrepreneurs and professions that are not mainly employed by the government (engineers, doctors, MBAs)

    PhDs often work for federally funded universities so their allegiance to the dems is understandable.

    It comes down to those who are rich or well paid due to the government vote dem while those who are rich or well paid despite the government vote GOP. Those who are dependent on the government for handouts also tend to vote Dem

    Well, in the words of Stephen Colbert, reality has a well known liberal bias.

    These observations and generalizations based upon empirical evidence, Turtle? Or are they based on pure conjecture?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    At the risk of repeating myself, higher education “has become” liberal indoctrination. You may think you come out educated but you may just come out brainwashed.

    Oh yeah, that's true. I had to recite the entire Communist Manifesto before I could get my degree. I forgot about that.
