Think about it, conservative dogma preaches history is the bible, ethnocentrism is true moral compass, logic doesn`t apply to argument, and the way things were done many years ago, are the way things should be done today. Do you actually think that someone who learned to take the facts, not opinion, and use those as a guide to truth might hold these dogmatic statements as universal constants? Course not.
PS. "thinking on your own" isn`t the same as critical thinking. Its like your a$$ and a hole in the ground, they`re different.
And for that reason, I`m going to run off and escape the craziness, for now.
Thats actually grossly inaccurate. I`m not sure about the validity of this survey, but I do know of many others that clearly show a correlation between political preference and college success. Its because colleges (well good ones anyway) teach critical thinking skills and thus college educated people tend not to rely on opinions, but facts, clearly giving liberals the advantage.
About the statistics...well, whatever. I reckon I`m just too stupid to care about what it says...
rich keep geting richer and the poor keep geting porrer
Each state is divided into many urban and rural subdivisions. Wealthy areas and poor areas. Many different ethnic backgrounds. Making convenient leaps in logic like this web are rediculous and dangerous.
REAL election stats showed an increase in the Jewish vote for Bush, for example. I guess that means that Jews are "dumber" as well, since we now know that dumber people voted for Bush based on this conclusion.
Does this now mean that Jew haters can use these statistics to prove how stupid Jew are?
I hope this whole thing was a joke.
Actually, it is pretty much the determining factor for who is "smart" or "stupid". They take into account proficiency but they weigh money spent per student and spent per teacher far, far too heavily to have an accurate study.
Noing Noing has simply looked at how each state in Morgan Quitno`s rankings voted at the last election. So that stats are perfectly okay, but obviously there are plenty of Republicans who are more intelligent than some Democrats and vice versa.
didn`t they do something like this a few years back, but then everyone found out they`d just made up everything?
they seemed to have based who is "smart" on the amount of money they spend per student or teacher. that only means they`re spending a lot of money, not that they`re smarter.
