Republicans are JUST AS well known (if not MORESO) as being the confederate-flag waving, racist people living in trailer parks.

not saying that is an overall "truth", but it is a stereotype that comes from somewhere (as all stereotypes do...)

The reason I don't want an intellectual is very simple. Intellectuals are very good at doing things by the book, but they lack common sense. They over complicate things that quite simply can be solved with common sense. Look at our government today, it isn't that complicated, yet in all thier "wisdom", they have screwed everything up two ways to sunday.

Its funny because the Democratic party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow, George Wallace, and the Confederacy. Oh how things get twisted.

In my opinion, intellectuals don't have the common sense that God gave a goose.

Okay, i'll try to clarify since you're having trouble comprehending.

I am aware the poster was responding to a liberal who said the same thing.

I couldn't quote them both.

I quoted the last poster who responded in kind.

LOL! I love when people like you tell me to keep up! funny stuff.
