    Then why did you bother - other than being your usual self and blowing your own horn or whatever?


    But you and the Pro-lifers do have that in common. You whine a lot about SCOTUS decisions. What else you may have in common I don't really care. If you're true to my idea of what a Libertarian is then you should be pro-choice but some of your Libertarian brothers seem to disagree, so I'm not really sure.

    There are people that are poor compared to me, though nowhere near 95% of the country.

    Truly, the least educated people might actually believe this. Anyone who does, would most likely vote Republican anyways. Just sayin'.

    Even though liberals are the most educated and affluent ideological demographic, moderates tend to become increasingly conservative with increased economic prosperity,[4] causing the professional class to be split between Republicans and Democrats.[11] <snip> Political ideologies in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As President Bush once said: ""As people do better, they start voting like Republicans, unless they have too much education. Then they vote Democratic, which proves that there can be too much of a good thing. After all, it is easier to govern sheep because they don't have to think."

    --As quoted by George W. Bush, at the National Oil and Power Company Convention, Dallas, TX., 1999.

    But, voting republican doesn't automatically make one stupid. Even smart people, with increased prosperity, (education and wealth are directly proportional) become increasingly conservitive. Not that they are any less smarter than they once were, but feel the Republicans will better represent them and their wealth. I do believe that is a very good reason. If I were a rich fat cat I most likely would vote GOP too. They are all about the wealthy people. But that wouldn't necessarily make me stupid, per se.

    In recent years persons with four-year college or university degrees have tended to vote Democratic.

    What sociological factors affect voting

    Barack Obama leads John McCain by a significant margin among voters with the most education, but trails the likely Republican nominee among voters with the least formal education.

    Obama Education Gap Extends to General Election

    For 14 states and the District of Columbia, 30% or more of voters 25 and older had a bachelor's degree in 2008. All 14 of those states and the District of Columbia were carried by President Obama (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington).

    Do more educated Americans vote Democratic, and less educated Americans Republican?


    I could go on. But the lesser educated people here wouldn't believe me anyways.

    My work here is done.

    Carry on....

    Whoa whoa whoa. Reagan was not the 3rd best President ever.

    Federal spending increased during his Presidency.
    Payroll tax increases resulted in a net tax increase for most Americans.
    Reagan promised to abolish JC's new Cabinet departments, Education and Energy, yet he appointed secretaries dedicated to their preservation.
    Reagan only eliminated one major federal program, the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (which was reborn around nine years later).
    Reagan truly enacted the War on Drugs, entitling it a "national security threat" and saying it was "tyranny." This led to many more incarcerations (I think we are still number one in the First world!).

    No, that criticism is based in fact. The fact is that AJ on orders from Thomas Jefferson orderd his troops to murder women and children of the Creek and Cherokee nations. That is documented

    I suspect were and how you are educated has a large effect on how one votes. For instance, compare voters from Harvard or other Ivy League school and say Hillsdale or Brigam Young or a service Academie. Compare those voters with those who are self made self educated. Cheers

I can care less if we are only giving to ONLY the unluckiest of the unlucky. I will pick my own charities thank you. I am tired of being everybodies piggy bank. Get your own damn money.
