Apparently, according to CNN, 47% did not attend college. A far cry from what you wrote.



sorry but "no education" means no college education...not the OPs fault you're an ignoramus who didn't know that. Who the heck cares about high school education?
No, it Does Not mean that. He could have said "no college education", "higher education", or that 47% of Newt's supporters only hold a HS diploma or something like that. "No education" means "uneducated".

Wow! No education at all. Never went to school a day in their life. That is amazing and they could actually read and write. Can you say BS? Like the post pervious to me "your spin" is crap along with the statement you are trying to convey.

Just to let you know that according US Census about 63% of American's go to college directly from high school. But the number of Americans that actually receive a bachelor degree or higher is around 45%. It varies from state to state. Colorado has the highest percentage of college graduates at about 52% with South Carolina around 42% have a college degree or higher. What this tells me is Obama has more uneducated morons voting from him than republicans. In the 2008 election 43% of the voters had a High School Diploma or less. 57% of the voters have a college degree. So if you really want to spin the numbers it appears that the Republicans are getting all but 6% of college graduates.

6% of the voter had a collect degree that vote for Obama
47% of the voters that had college degrees voted republican
43% of the voters with a High School Diploma or less voted for Obama.

Wow so the least educated Americans are Democrats.

I guess all the crap I see on this site about republicans, and fox new viewer are not as smart as democrats is a big fabricated story. Or it might be that the person writing the article was a Democrat and only had a High School Diploma at best. If that is the case I understand. They were dis-enfranchised and a special program should be created to help Democratic voters receive an extra special Doctorate Degree in stupidity so that they too can be counted as college educated. Or better yet if you are a Democrat you can just make up anything you want and feed it to us as the truth and if we challenge it our vote does not count.

Having a new Reagan would be better then what we have now. Ronnie was a great president for the day. However Reagan's time has passed. Now we need another Jackson, another Jefferson, we need a down to earth person who will actually defend the Constitution, not use it for toilet paper. Ron Paul or bust.

Here you go from the same link i posted.

Vote by Education
Never Attended College
(18%) 47% Gingrich


Only 40% have completed some college but the overwhelming majority who voted haven't.

And for the people who attacked me verbally and claimed i am a CNN writer, which i am not, why dont you read the poll then on your own?

I am talking about simple English definition of terms. No = Zero. No education would equal Zero education. The statement was false. 47% lack a college degree would have been "factual" at least according to CNN. Consider the source.

Maybe you should learn about idioms...

idiom-A group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g., raining cats and dogs).

Just man up and admit you were wrong.

Not a factor.

Ron Paul is a joke and the voters took note of that.

When Ron Paul supporters actually have to go offline, and into the real world to vote, they fail miserably.


This sums it up. He has no chance in hell.


Another Anti Ron Paul troll you sure have an agenda you know what? that wont work here.

Connotation is the figurative cultural assumptions that the image implies or suggests. It involves emotional overtones, subjective interpretation, socio-cultural values, and ideological assumptions.
Why would you adopt this method of interpretation for such a simple sentence? There was no context in the title, or his own writing to support anything other than the denotative interpretation? Deny ignorance. Let your words communicate the information you wish to convey. Relying on subjective interpretation(the very essence of connotative definition) leads to false conclusions without direct, relevant context. The context we had was "
"
leading to the belief that the OP was denigrating the South Carolinian voters by saying they had no training, knowledge, or even intelligence with which to make a better choice. This is untrue.

Your the one whose Denying ignorance did you even read the link? nah you wasted like some of the other posters in here to insult and force me to change to title because in your mind its wrong? really its wrong? oh my no its not wrong at all.

Really Untrue? i dont think so, if its so Untrue why dont you prove it then, people in SC voted in for there choice and they want more wars, they cheered for the booing at the golden rule.

that really says alot.


South Carolinian voters by saying they had no training, knowledge, or even intelligence with which to make a better choice. This is untrue.
Did you even read the link i posted?
47% Never Attended College

And your saying that's untrue?

My goodness the anti ron paul posters are in full force today.

"Not Educated" is not an idiom. At best, he could have been using hyperbole though it was not apparent from the context of his post. There are approximately 25,000 idioms in the English language. "Not Educated" is not one of them.

If you had half a brain, you'd realize that the denotation option doesn't make sense(47% of voters didn't go to high school or elementary school, that's highly unlikely)...leaving only the connotation option.

No, instead of using just a mediocre amount of logic, you'd rather derail a perfectly good thread.

And don't say you had no context, you had a whole thread, and links, as context. Get lost.

EDIT: Thank you for changing your title. Perhaps we can now have a real discussion about how Newt got so many votes in SC and what it means for the remaining primaries.

I pointed out that 47% did not attend college. This does not mean they are "uneducated".

So if i never Attended College does that make me uneducated? in a way it will in a way.
That also explains why the voters voted for Newt and because if you look at the in the statistics the debates played a important factor on deciding person.


So i guess when Newt Said Kill them All, they flocked to vote for him, oh and i would imagine they didn't care when the Golden Rule was booed too.

Well that tells me alot about the voters who claim they are supposed to be Christians.
Oh and you know what bible says about our enemies Anti Ron Paul posters?

Luke 6.27
"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,



Luke 6:35
But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.



I am ashamed at South Carolina
So this is how liberty dies with thunderous applause.
