Ask the professors in academia what their political inclinations are and you might begin to see why they might think so.


Is it surprising that it seems that the majority of people who are educated tend to be liberal? Note I said "majority" not all.



Well you know where you can stick that education you pointy headed intellectual.....

20 points for knowing who used the phrase "pointy headed intellectual" besides me....

If you're comfortable in your ideology, does it matter what someone else calls you?


No, I don't care at all. But if by being comfortable in my ideology I try to change things that negatively affects others by making them conform to mine (both right and left), then there is a problem.

Is it that the majority of educated people are or just the majority of educated people in academia?

I've not seen the numbers on the ones in the private sector.

Liberals and conservatives are like salt and pepper.
To much of one ruins your steak, but the right balance makes it perfect.
To bad both sides are to thick headed to understand that.


Funny, I was thinking the same thing a little while ago: left wing, right wing...you can't fly with *one* wing. You need two.

That is generally speaking true, so what does that say that the ivory towers want to try to make one wing an illness?

Then you're in luck.

The liberal/socialist/progressives are running things.

When Bush was POTUS liberals called him out on all kinds of stuff, from past coc aine use to lying about Iraq. Most of the accusations became true.
Now you have conservatives accusing Obama of all kinds of things while some liberals have turned their back on him. Thing is the accusations are way out there from Michelle being a man to Obama being a muslim non-citizen who is intent on invading Texas.
That alone should speak volumes...

And conservatives are trying to ruin things for people when it doesn't affect them at all. Why do conservatives seem to care so much about what other people do when it doesn't affect them?

Good point.

Maybe that speaks volumes in itself.

The question is...why?

Conservatism is a political philosophy


It is not just a political view, people who say that are lying or very ignorant. Conservatism is a personal and societal characteristic as well, though really almost anything can be described as conservative or liberal.

Both extremes are bad, why does no one call for more centrism?

If someone tries to kill someone else, I have no say in the matter, but on a moral basis, I try to step in because sometimes, it's the right thing to do.

So what about the whole, you know, gay marriage thing? That comes to mind.

I'll wait.

Never said you were.

But conservatives in general are up in arms against it, including most of the presidential candidates. That's the point.
