Source for the “majority” part?

Most, if not all, of the tech billionaires without a college degree came from privileged backgrounds and were attending Ivy Leagues/Stanford when their businesses took off.

Anyway, another poster brought up an interesting point, which is that those who move here from traditionally conservative places are likely more liberal in their leanings. I grew up in West Texas, and there, being Republican and being Evangelical were practically the same thing. I imagine those who live in a place that’s similarly irrational in their political leanings (like California cities can be) will have a tendency to be reactionarily for the other side and drawn to a more moderate place.

Nothing wrong with the liberal politics. It's just the high rent and real estate prices are things there and other spots that should be keeping everyone, regardless of their political leanings, on their collective toes.

I've thought about moving up to the area myself and have even been goaded into doing so by users on here. But the cheapest places I could find for my dollar stretching aren't exactly what I'd feel comfortable in. If anything, the general, political vibe of the area seems quite mixed to me. Liberal in some spots like vehicles smogging/emissions and other environmental concerns. But still somewhat conservative when it comes to the price tag on living in some spots.

I am a true independent, you can slam both sides for the exact same things, and those attacking the other side are just ignoring what their own parties are doing.
Nah.

And when did I ever say I supported Obama?

In my line of reasoning, people, as well as places, can run a range from liberal to conservative on various topics. Breaking things out to political, social, and fiscal concerns can make it possible for someone to run the gamut in positions on differing topics while not toeing a party line on a broad range of subjects. IMO, this, along with some of the previously pointed out political boomerang effects of some transplants, are reasons why CO is a purple state. That approach is probably why we are the birthplace of modern political Libertarianism.

But purple tends to equate to centrist / moderate thinking. Extremes - including liberatarianism - are anything but middle-of-the-road.

since the conservatives value the military so much, why do we still keep on funding these service academies, ROTC, OCS? a private can rise from the rank to general? it all common sense

why do we still need doctors? engineers? etc

Where's that guy who said the majority of people own million and billion dollar companies don't have college degrees? I can't wait to read about that. Just waiting on the source...
