Sure. Every social scientist/economist/political scientist on the planet would disagree, but whatever.


EDIT: You realize that 'intelligent' has nothing to do with being unable to consider wise arguments being made by other people. That's closed-mindedness/ignorance. Intelligence is when you have strong beliefs that are backed up with facts (not like your theory about people not being influenced in some way by their parents/friends/etc.... all the facts are against that one), and being able to hear other arguments on a topic and understand them to the point that if the people around you make a strong point, you can learn and grow from it. Smart people who can't accept that they're not right 100% of the time, and that sometimes others have something to offer to the way they view the world, aren't smart at all.

Just saying.

Okay, now you're trying to speak for every social scientist/economist/political scientist on the planet. Wow...

I'm sorry, but arguing against the fact that people are influenced by their surroundings, at least to some extent, is literally arguing against the bedrock of social science. Heck, if nothing else the language you speak has an impact on how you view the world, and you're taught that language by your parents and friends. I can approach this as an anthropologist, linguist, sociologist, economist, political scientist, you name it. Each of these fields understands that people are affected by their surroundings to some extent.

John's creek high school district has a lot of variety of people and political views. Coming from a liberal state ( Massachusetts ) I am very comfortable living off of Medlock Bridge and State Bridge Road where John's creek high school is located. It is a brand new high school that just opened up fall of 2009. If you do your research you will quickly learn that students who currently go there score very well on the standardized tests and majority of the students are accepted into great universities. I heard that several were accepted into Princeton this year 2010.

I live in Northview School District. Quite a few of our friends here are liberals, but I think that's because we seek them out. If you want to be in a sea of liberals, Johns Creek isn't the place for you.

But I'm pretty far to the left, and I have had absolutely no problems fitting in here. And I've found plenty of people just like myself.

Watch for signs in Suwanee yards this fall for the Presidential election. You will see some from "both" sides. I would try to find local meet ups or Democrat party groups. That might be your best bet.
