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.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

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 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.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
