And also the rise of teachers' unions, and young people having more interest in being cool than applying themselves toward future employment, and more single family homes, and more drug use, and an inefficient, bloated, top heavy school sysyem, etc. Liberalism is way more to blame than anything else.

Really doesn't matter, the discussion needs to had if in fact it's true that these people really are looking for land.

Check out the ACT and SAT scores of some of the religious based private schools, where creation is taught, and get back to me.

I agree with most of what you said but in fact liberalism is your only saving grace here as they tend to be far more educated, they tend to be democrats and they tend to have a job.

The top 10 most educated states in the country are all blue states, the 10 most uneducated states are all red except for one. The red states also use the most welfare, food stamps, and "entitlements" in general.

You think humans were made from dirt by magic and they can get pregnant without a sperm fertilizing an egg and talking snakes and that a man can live in a whale's stomach for 3 days! Well maybe a man could but not a woman as we are are the fairer sex and all.

So you force people to take a class that is totally out of sinc with all other classes they must learn to do well on the ACTs and the SATs. Big whoopin poppycock. It is called dumbing down to suit a particular powerful political group.
In which Neanderthal school system were you taught to spell the word sync? I am not arguing for the teaching of creationism. I am not a believer. I am arguing against your stupid statement that the teaching of a single theory that may take up a day or two of class dumbs down the country. There are many factors which have contributed. You are an idealogue who is barking up the wrong tree.

It is not the liberals themselves who are the problem. Their motives are probably born out of genuine caring. It is that their programs take away the people's self reliance. By trying to "help" people , they are hurting them in the long run, by making them dependent on a handout. Haven't you ever seen signs saying "Please do not feed the bears?" They don't want the bears to be waiting for a handout.

Also, I am conservative, and would put my education up against anyone here. What is the racial makeup of the top 10 most educated states? You do realize that certain minorities vote from 70% to over 90% Democratic. There could be more to it than education.

Well I'm sure there are way more white people that voted for the King of outsourcing for the wrong reason. And again the red states are the ones draining the country, they talked about seceding, please do, the blue states can't afford you anymore.

Also the majority of the tea party are on assistance, but they want smaller government. They are also part of that special percent that Romney talked about that doesn't pay income tax.

I am a liberal and proud of it, I want happiness and success for very American and yes I do think there are many folks that need to go out and get a job!

Yes you have NO IDEA what I went through in middle school and high school! It was terrible, I finally started to play a clever mind game where I would never let school and church touch in my mind.(I was terrified of going to hell). At school I would pretend that I believed what they taught me so I could make As and stay in the Beta club and at church I pretended I believed what they taught so I wouldn't go to hell. It was terrible, I had such a complex and a low self esteem. My childhood years could have been totally different.

Speaking of not feeding the bears and giving handouts, when are we going to stop the handouts to the rich?

When someone as rich as Mitt Romney can pay way less that 13.9% income tax (I say this because much of his income is not in this country) something is wrong. People say that the poor cost the country money, Mitt Romney is costing the country as much as 5 poor neighborhoods ! How many others are there like Mitt, how many entitlements are the rich going to continue to get, they are dragging this country down, we cannot continue to support them! The saddest part about Mitt Romney is that much of his money came from the middle class and if they still had the money they would be paying taxes on it but not him. Many of these same people lost their jobs to laborers in other countries making so little that it would be ridiculous not to consider them slave labor.

THE MIDDLE CLASS ARE THE JOB CREATORS, WE CLEAR THE SHELVES, WE CREATE DEMAND, WE JUMP START THE ECONOMY, AND YES WE PAY TAXES !

John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Al Gore have just as much or more money than Romney, and they also shelter money. You are a confused idealogue. Mitt Romney pays whatever amount of taxes that the tax laws call for. You are nothing but a jealous loser. Grow up. Do you really think that people will go out and find a job when they get their unemployment benefits extended again and again?

Please cite your source showing that "the majority of the Tea Party are on assistance." You are showing your ignorance and prejudice.

I'm absolutely not jealous or a loser, if John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Al Gore shelter money; shame on them! I'm college educated, work very hard, but have a very happy life. I know a lot of rich people and many of them are not happy at all.

What kind of person would be in favor of keeping loop holes for the rich and cutting financial aid for college students, and then taking birth control from poor families! Unbelievable!
