So if i never Attended College does that make me uneducated? in a way it will in a way.
Nope, it only means that you have less education than a college grad, and that you likely have less student loan debt.

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.
Perhaps if I only had half a brain I would believe like that. You could guess and reach for some speculative definition. Or you could use your intelligence and accept the meaning of the words as written along with the whole "the south sucks" subtext rife within the original post. It would have been much simpler, and intellectually honest to post the actual results of the poll like the OP has now done.

It is suspect when whoever the major news networks "anoint," gets exactly what they predicted. It is not too far out of reason to suggest when voting machines control the votes and rig elections you will confirm those predictions. It is not implausible for the only candidate who served in the military in a State that supports the military, would get many more votes over chicken hawks who want war, torture, and endless conflicts. This is all especially poignant when more military people than all the rest of the candidates combined gave their financial support to Ron Paul. He did not complain about vote fraud, savoring the message itself and along battle ahead. The content of opposition messages suggests the presence of bots, or shills in their usual ad homonym thoughts without substance.

A bachelor's degree does? Be serious. I know people with 4 year degrees who cannot hold a conversation on any topic outside their discipline, and various tv reality shows.

I wonder if the person here claims a BA? How many see the serious mistake here?

So far Ron Paul lost in every State that had an election. He has money, an organization, participated in all the debates there is no excuse left. He had every fair chance to win and he cannot do it. Face the facts, the majority of the people do not want Ron Paul as President. They looked at his record, what he says publicly, and what his stances are on the main issues, he fails on so many accounts.
He would end government intitutions that help the poor, in a time of great need.
He would be an isolationist in a time when we need to protect out interests around the world from ever increasing competition by emerging big players like China for resources.
He has a past that is tainted by racism and shady explanations.
He has a record of being a loner in Congress, not a uniter to get work done.
He is on the record saying women who are sexually harassed at work should just go home, that right there is the craziest stance a candidate could ever have, alienating the entire female vote.
The list goes on but any one of those reasons are enough to make his voter pool very small.

First off Ron Paul is not racist stop saying it its been debunked its funny how ATS allows posts such your to stay on so people could see, which isn't true .


My goodness you anti Ron Paul folks are sure in full force today! thats only further that you fear him? lets your little nasty insult on the good doctor Ron Paul

. They looked at his record, what he says publicly, and what his stances are on the main issues, he fails on so many accounts. He would end government intitutions that help the poor, in a time of great need. He would be an isolationist in a time when we need to protect out interests around the world from ever increasing competition by emerging big players like China for resources. He has a past that is tainted by racism and shady explanations.

How many times have we gone through this nonsense?

He would be an isolationist
Ron Paul is an non interventionist and thats a key difference from a isolationist and remember that.

He would end government intitutions that help the poor, in a time of great need.
I will say what? really? you believe that?

government institutions dont help the poor, they have never helped the poor i dont what your smoking but the time and time again your showing insults on Paul fail.

So are you saying programs like Food-stamp and welfare really help the poor? sorry you are so wrong





He has a past that is tainted by racism and shady
What the heck? Ron Paul is not racist, those newsletters weren't written by him




when we need to protect out interests around the world
How about no we dont? do you want the whole world to further hate America? already Japan is rethinking its alliance with America and your saying you further take over other countries and occupy them in name of the Oil and resource wars?

Which will further destroy Americas economy?

Rick Santorum Voted As One Of Most Corrupt Politicians In 2006
Yeah you sure want your record to be known as the Most Corrupt Politician?

Or the record by newt gingrich who voted against the Veterans yeah he sure is legit isn't he and newt gingrich has a record of loner in congress too.

TinfoilTP Why dont you research your candidates? oh that's right since your Anti Ron Paul and your avatar proves it, i guess you wont you would rather listen to the mainstream talking Pundits instead.

Europeans,Canadians support Ron Paul polices, you better wake up, cause if you dont, if you vote Newt, Romney America will be broke by then.


And you will be blaming all on it on yourself..

You are Canadian and have no clue.
Newt was the Speaker of the House, he passed massive legislation. Good or bad depending on point of view, he got things done.
Ron Paul sat there for 14 years and only ever passed one Bill that he authored, and it was for a little chunk of property in his district to be donated for a historical site. People have dogs that lived 14 years and accomplished more than that.

As each loss piles up one after the other, Ron Paul supporters are the ones that are being proven to be clueless.

The backlash is just horrible.

The SC voters are all uneducated halfwits living in dirtfloor housing according to Paul supporters. They even waste their time digging up college diploma stats for the state as if to prove their hatred has credence. Never mind that the Constitution doesn't say you need to have a college diploma to vote.

Iowa voters were all religious hicks according to Paul supporters.

Now Florida voters are all vile baby boomers who are evil warmongers and shouldn't have a right to vote according to Ron Paul supporters.

The sideshow Paul supporters are providing is very entertaining, in a circus freakshow kind of way. By the end of the election Paul supporters will have insulted every resident of every State in the country.

Ron Paul sat there for 14 years and only ever passed one Bill that he authored, and it was for a little chunk of property in his district to be donated for a historical site. People have dogs that lived 14 years and accomplished more than that.

Ron Paul has accomplished alot what we need is a teacher not a man who is hated in the rest part of the country.

Of course the implication people are making here is that the only reason Gingrich won is because stupid people didn't know any better, and if there had been smart people voting, they would have voted for Paul.

I've already pointed out statistics that show college attendance in South Carolina is ever so slightly behind states like California and New York, where all the "smart" people live, but it all begs the question anyway. Does the fact that you've been to college mean you actually are smarter?

First of all, going to college is often as much an economic issue as it is one of intelligence. I know a barber who has a measured IQ in the 160 range. he didn't go to college at the time because that had never been a goal for him or his family. By the time he had the chance he was already making $60 and hour and had a family. He didn't see the need. His $100 grand or so a year put him in the top 5%. So just by itself attending college does not equate to intelligence.

Secondly, what do you notice about people who attend college, particularly in the arts & sciences? They go through an idealistic phase, most often leaning toward socialism. That's partially because college professors tend to lean socialist, so they are able to indoctrinate students in the cause. I know I, as an anthropology major, got a heavy dose of this as I was taught all about cultural relativism (Morals depend) and ethnocentricity. I came out of college extremely liberal in most of my philosophy.

But as a number of philosophers have said, "If you're not a socialist before you are 40, you have no heart. If you're still a socialist after 40 you have no head." (The terms and ages vary depending on where you go.) So what this phrase means is that an empathetic individual will see the inequities of the world and think socialism is the "fix" for these ills. But as you grow older and see how the world works and participate in doing so, you begin to see that socialism is a completely crazy idea that never works, though it is often forced down people's throats, therefore "no head" means you're not seeing this.

College students also form the bulk of the protestors in the streets. After all, they needn't be at work in most cases, so they can afford the time. I was tear gassed on the freeway during the Vietnam demonstrations, so I have first hand knowledge of this. I also had this idea that a job would just fall into my lap when I graduated (in anthropology? Snicker!) But I graduated in a recession, and had a bit of a wake up call. But still, I was idealistic enough to believe liberalism was the savior of mankind and that if we just closed down the freeway by marching on it in numbers, we'd get rid of TPTB and a brave new world hearalded by Woodstock would come into being.

Yup, I was that naive. But my friend the barber, who never went to college, never got into that kind of belief system. He was of the opinion that if you worked both hard and smart, you could get ahead. So he opened a shop and made it up scale. He developed a line of hair care products. He hired other barbers. And he did really well. Remember he really was a smart guy IQ wise, so he was a nartural as a businessman who could grow his business. His attitude was that the world did not owe me a job and besides, I had just wasted 4 years on college learning something totally useless and now I was a college educated person who couldn't DO anything useful. I didn't even know how to cut hair!

So the idea that South Carolina is a backwards state full of stupid people who vote for the wrong people is laughable. To my way of thinking the "stupid" people are the ones who expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter, and who continue to support the most riciculous candidates imaginable, who themselves have no idea how the world works.

It's not the people of South Carolina who are stupid; it's the people who claim they are who are stupid.
