You might be right about your racial assumption of rural white Republicans not having an education. I don't know for sure, so aside from pointing out the multi million dollar family farms, I'll let it slide. I will also point out that the hick drop out might have little education and vote as daddy did but he works hard. Which is more than can be said for the welfare addicts in the inner city.<quoted text>
we don't need any more derogatory comments about inner city blacks, yona. i'll bet you could step outside the city limits a short distance, into the hills and hollers, and find many more 10th grade and lower white folks who are strongly, darn near militantly conservative, you think?
why is it that college towns are nearly 100% democrat? why is it that the solid republican south isn't the region in our country putting out significant numbers of scientists, engineers, etc? why is anti-intellectualism a conservative philosophy? look it up. the ivy school educated are titled "elitists" while at the same time its a-ok to elect dumbed-down men, alcohol burnouts, to the highest office in the land (although their families are made up of purebred connecticutt yankee wealthy elites). had the man spoken with powerful vocabulary and strong northern accent, i doubt he'd have been quite as popular among conservatives.
most conservatives i know are flat earthers and conformists who never question their party norms.
As for your whole second paragraph. I assume that is your liberal blind loyalty showing. You certainly can't substantiate the college town comment or the percentage of scientist from the region. It is all conjecture and propaganda. Just admit you are smearing tall tales to advance your opinion and agenda. As for college towns I give you downtown Asheville as being screaming left wing socialist liberal but the greater city and surrounding metropolitan area is predominantly Republican and you may check BOE for that. I might also mention that you might want to rethink the higher IQ thing in reference to college towns, judging by the real brain trust DT Asheville has become.
