    You mentioned a psycho and a physicist, as if they are one and the same. Both smart, yes, but neither representative of the popululace I am talking about. I am concerned with those libs who are above the Jerry Springer watchers, but who cannot see that Chomsky and Zinn are full of ****.
    so you worry about people that in your opinion buy BS and dont accept facts? interesting.

    I say more conservatives because if you add "libertarians" to the pot, then there are a **** ton of conservatives. And there literally is almost no difference between most libertarians and conservatives on this board.

    If I'm a conservative, you're a communist.

    Conservative is to libertarian as white is to grey. Liberal is to libertarian as black is to grey. In essence, we're a hybrid of both worlds.

    Yep. The line between insanity and sanity is quite hard to define, in many cases. He wasn't insane in the sense that his thought process was messed up; he just chose a radical way to demonstrate his radical views. Seeing technology as being the epitome of evil, destruction, etc., he chose the violent way to publish his manifesto.

    IMO, there is no doubt of this being absolutely true.
    However, there is a difference , a real difference between being intelligent and being educated.
    So, with all the so-called conservatives bouncing around, does this mean that our education system has failed ??
    Or something else....
    For instance ...we all wish to be wealthy(most of us anyway) and being conservative is more effective in this pursuit of the dollars.

    You agree the more educated one is, the more liberal one is. I'm right der witcha.

    You hold there is a diff between being educated and being intelligent. Gotcha.

    You ask whether the presence of cons ("all the so-called conservatives bouncing around") means "education has failed."

    Then . . . . what?

    Education has failed at what, indoctrination?

    I'm more self educated than school educated, but people could still classify me as a liberal.

    I voted for more conservatives here than liberals.

    The one thing I know is absolute fact is that the percentage of people who claim they are libertarians is way way way out of proportion to the American populace. For some reason, right wing libertarians have decided that internet message boards are the battleground for the hearts and minds of the next generation.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
