An awful lot, if that 24 year old kid still neck-deep in school is from a rural area and/or perhaps grew up on a farm or in a farming
community. Last I checked the majority of post-secondary institutions are located in or near urban areas and have been known to have students from
smaller or rural communities.
The problem with this theory is that statistics still apply. While many of us in rural areas are known for family values and the like - we're still
not going to have the majority of children in urban area colleges. Or anything close.
I'm sure homosexuals are completely cool with bigoted Tea Partiers telling them they can't get married, and shouldn't be allowed to raise or
teach children. I'm also sure women who are pro-choice are cool with pro-life Tea Partiers telling them they shouldn't have any right to terminate a
pregnancy and therefore really don't have any power or ownership over their own body.
You're sweeping the Tea Party, here. Most in the Tea Party simply avoid this subject - it's not a focal point of the Tea Party movement. However,
for my opinion on this issue: www.abovetopsecret.com...
Yeah, probably better that they're constantly being assaulted by warnings from alarmists that the world is going to end because of muslims or
gays or gay muslim socialists.
And, again, that's not what the Tea Party is about. Never has been, and never will be.
Sorry, but your post made me think 'And they say *liberals* are elitist..."
To be fair - I am superior to you, and most other people in almost every metric. You'll marginalize me for my statement - but it is supported
through repeatable testing and statistical analysis. I am part of a group that less than 2% of the population are even eligible for - I damned well
better hold myself to elite standards.
And what makes me elite among the elite? My understanding of the value of people. I can look at you and know where to put you and how to get you to
your potential. The true masters of chess understand that, limited as the pawn may be, it is the most essential piece to the game. They also
understand that it's not a sacrificial piece, but as the anchor of your team.
In other words - there are two elitists. Those who sing to the tune of Metallica's "Better Than You" ("You're holding me back 'cause I'm
striving to be better than you!") - and those who manage the droves of aimless people.
