Ah yes, those liberal elitists....

Everything we do in life in predicated on our ability to think, perceive, imagine, and dream, all of which are results of studying the humanities.

It is what makes us fully human.

I can't think of a better use for knowledge.

What is a liberal elitist?

Anyone more educated than the conservative that applies the term.

Yes, republicans realize that they might get more money if their richer peers would be taxed more. But they have higher moral standard than to steal from the rich, and realize that freedom is possible for everyone, regardless of riches. Plus, more importantly, in voting, they do not set their sights on money, they are more interested in individual freedoms and preservation of the US Constitution as it is written.

My educated guess would be that regardless of college degrees, the true independent voter has FAR greater intelligence than either a Democrat or Republican partisan voter

Independent thought requires some amount of intelligence, blind loyalty does not.

People do realize there are bad colleges, right? I watched a lecture from Emory that explained why there should be no separation of church and state......Just because someone goes to college doesn't mean they are smart. The type of education and the way you learn matters.

Awesome, the more the merrier. I never believed the college degrees guaranteed intelligence. They are only a means to expand professional opportunities.

Are you really using representatives, who by their very nature MUST be wealthy to fund their campaigns, as indicative of wealth distributions along party lines?
