This is an article about a study. I will include another article about the same study before I close a lot of browser tabs and look for the actual study.

http://www.livescience.com/18132-intelligence...

I'm a registered independent. I identify as a social liberal. I have no position regarding abortion. I am pretty conflicted. I can't figure out when human life begins.

Liberals and conservatives aren't totally homogenous groups. They aren't in total agreement on every issue.

"Liberal" and "conservative" are convenient categorizations perpetuated by the politico-media complex and the two-party system. It's a false dichotomy. I prefer to focus on one issue at a time without labeling myself. I'm not going to engage in a liberal versus conservative type argument.

Again, this is a statistically valid generalization, but there are always exceptions.

I guess us Christians ignorantly clinging to our Bible and guns is a real problem for the socialist liberals who want us to be sympathetic to the communists who just cannot seem to be able to take our guns. That makes our IQ low and the liberals pure genius. Keep up the good work "smart people".

Your words indicated you thought the news outlet reporting about the study invalidated the actual study.

I'm not comfortable discussing abortion with you.

There is no real argument here.

After I read the study, it seemed to be a bit sensationalized and misinterpreted. Less intelligent people are more likely to utilize right-wing ideologies when they rationalize or justify bigotry and prejudice.

Stuff.
You're resorting to a logical fallacy known as ad-hominem. It's essentially insult and name-calling instead of addressing my argument, which is non-existent.

It may be safe to say you're employing a straw-man, a logical fallacy which misrepresents and subsequently refutes an opponent's argument. I haven't proposed anything. I just posted a link to an article.

Intelligent people are more likely to be liberal and atheistic, but... the study's definition of "liberal" is caring about people who aren't friends or family. Its definition of "conservative" is caring only or primarily about friends or family. Liberals had an average IQ of 106 while conservative had an average IQ of 95:

I've lived in a culture of Christian privilege, male privilege, idiot privilege, extrovert supremacy, and introvert-shaming for a while. I'm obviously somewhat agitated with these people. I may be bitter because I live in Wayne. I hate this place.

Abortion on demand, for any reason, is good public policy and actually addresses one of the biggest complaints of the conservatives.

No, ad-hominem is when you start a "name-calling" thread stating that conservatives are racist and dumb "instead of addressing an arguement, which was non existent" until you started one...

Thats an excuse that haters like you hide behind...instead of having the balls to just say what you believe, you cleverly find a link that backs up your bigotry so you can then claim your opponent employs "strawman" arguements..ive heard it all pal.

But then again your just repeating what the "study" says right?

Like conservatives did when they formed the republican party specifically to free black men while the democrats such as KKK member Robert C Byrd strung up blacks in trees simply because they were brown?
