Please. If you want to go to college in this county, you can go. Find the stats that show that those without an education are just as intelligent as those with.

There have been a lot of people on this thread claiming that if you're voting Republican then you are stupid. I didn't see you taking issue with that...so are educated Republicans stupid while uneducated Democrats the intelligent people in this country?

BTW, I'm sure the people of this country with money got to where they are on sheer dumb luck and have absolutely no intelligence whatsoever.

One last time, ainulinale, I am not going to argue, but the simple truth is that intelligence and education by definition are not the same thing. Look it up. As for "The argument in context was about Democrats being less informed than Republicans. These graph suggest just that," No, your graphs do not show that Democrats are less informed than Republicans. Your graphs show that a higher percentage of Repubs than Dems have graduated from college. Not the same thing. You are making inferences.
And by the way, it was you who referred to yourself as "So high again". If you can't take comments on what you yourself have posted, then be more selective on what you post. You need to chill.

No crap. When was this ever called into question? Not to mention there has never been an authoritative definition for intelligence to begin with because there are all kinds of intelligences.

Yeah, a pretty reasonable inference. Like I said, if you can show evidence to the contrary, I'd love to see it.

Ahh, so therefore you have the right to misinterpret my words. Or did it never occur to you that "high" doesn't refer to drug usage?

This is a good point. I think it is only 2% or less.

I didn't say that voting Republican was stupid. So you have no argument, genious.

OK grammar nazi

How can you be stupid if you are educated? I know you can lack common sense, but that, my friend, was a stupid question.

....Didn't say that either.

Perhaps a large trust fund was involved though. I wish I had one of those.

Well, I think there are some on this thread who are arguing just that.

Many educated people do stupid things or lack common sense or even lack morals and values which lead them to do things others wouldn't. Many uneducated people have common sense and a sense of right and wrong or at least the ability to control themselves. Read a newspaper sometime. Stupid people do stupid things, regardless of education.
