Don't fool yourself, Rick has the ear of some very influential people in the GOP and outside contributors in the corporate sector includeing the Koch bros. And to think the Koch bros aren't influential to the GOP is foolish.


The Koch brothers -is- the new GOP. and they own pretty much all of their big speakers in the GOP as of late.

One by one, the gremlins on the koch stooges need to lose the limelight in my opinion.

We are on the same page...I am just saying, we need to toss out their book we are discussing, because even negative news will push forward their agenda

Yes, and we were also taught that the parties switched platforms, and it was the republicans who were the liberals and the democrats who were the conservatives. Funny how people who bring up these facts always seem to leave that part out. I wonder why that is...

Everyone who isn't a republican already knows this. The GOP is the party of Low IQs...




If Santorum’s remarks are correct, Romney will have to rely, not only white people, but dumb white people, to seek out a victory in November. The former Pennsylvania Senator was railing against the American “intelligentsia” at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Saturday. Like Stalin and Lenin before him, Santorum must feel that intelligent people are to blame for everything that is wrong in the world.

"Smart people" like the college professor making her students sign a pledge to vote for Obama and a straight Democrat ticket? In math class no less.

I knew exactly what Santorum was talking about. The snub-nosed limousine liberals who think they know everything and wants government to do all things for all people, but won't give a dollar to charity because they don't want to be in competition with the government al la Joe Biden, John Kerry.

How the hell does that explain the election of the current potus eh?

Everyone knows that the left is the party of "people who think they are smarter than everyone else". but the reality is quite different.

In the words of Ronald Regan:

"It's not the fact that my liberal friends are ignorant, it's just they knoiw so much that isn't true."

Get used to hating on him. He's most likely going to have a great position in the upcoming Romney administration.

I see a bit deeper into that statement. The fact is the true history of America is not taught in school nor will it ever be. Teachers unions ensure the Liberal agenda is drilled into students heads over and over. The educated are basically brainwashed with Liberal spew for 20 years so little wonder they come out hating Conservatives. Are they taught the KKK was started by a Democrat? Are they taught the Civil War was started because democrats refused to give up their slaves? Are they taught Republicans fought for black equality since the signing of the Constitution? Are they taught Al Gore SR was filibustering the GOP bill to ensure blacks right to vote when JFK was shot effectively ending it? Are they taught anything but what the left wants them to know? Educated does not mean smart. Some of the dumbest people i ever knew were highly educated.


You were taught that the political parties switch sides a few decades ago right? The Democrats of the past are the Republicans of today and the Democrats of today were the Republicans back then.

Well since the majority does not belong to the "smart people" category, he will instead have the "dumb" people aka the majority on his side, which sadly accounts for more. But that is the same as any other major politician aiming to win the election right now; indeed both Obama and Romney are aiming to get the majority on their side as well, and they too know that these people are stupid. The smart people will always be a minority, and on the side of Ron Paul.

So you will be voting Romney?

As was pointed out and ignored, Santorum was being sarcastic. It would be like if he called Ron Paul fans 'smart'. We would all know what he was saying.

'Smart' people are the dumbest. Say 'human rights' or 'democracy' to them and they will agree with anything.

edit- and how dumb are 'smart' chicks? Could they be more predictable and easy to impress if they tried?

Isn't that what we would want from a government?

Equal human rights and REAL democracy sounds like great ideas to start with, now if only it were true...

Ummm, probably because John Mcain is senile and Sarah Palin was a complete moron.

Did you seriously just ask that? Reinforces my previous IQ statement.

This is actually true.
The majority of people in the US (and the world, lets not pretend we are unique) are indeed dumb as a box of hair.
The key is to give people enough wisdom to figure out who the most intelligent person is to lead.

If I need surgery done, I don't find the doctor that is just like me..that would scare the crap out of me. I want a einstein crossed with house type that boggles my mind with his intellect. The whole "I voted for him because he seemed like a guy I could have a beer with" mentality needs to die a horrible death. We tried that...it is a epic failure.

I wouldn't mind a republican president if it was a highly intelligent person whom actually studied current economic realities verses victorian era philosophy. The error with the right is their economic philosophies are outdated..basically, if there is pirates in the carribean as a worry for your import/export policy, your info may be a bit dated. They fail to understand the impact of globalization.

"elite, smart people" does not equate to smart people. It equates to people who are elite, and smart. Not only did you get that context incorrect, you failed to incorporate a much deeper meaning in it.

I won't bother to try and teach you, though.

It's just sad.

Real democracy..yuck. no thanks.
Not much into mob rule.

As I grow older, I think we need less and less democracy frankly. I don't trust the majority of america (51%) in regards to policy. The current republic is alright enough...elect a spokesperson and let that person make informed decisions. Democracy is destruction...and america has never been a democracy. There is a big difference between Democracy and a Republic.

What is "elite"?
In context, keep in mind that this is the guy whom thinks any furthering of education could fall into the elitism label


Tell me, what do you personally think about a politician whom wants to make being uneducated a merit and anyone going on after high school is basically snobbish? There is a trend of growing anti-intellectualism..who gains by keeping the population stupid?

I think this wasn't out of context, I think this was letting slip the agenda of the evangelicals...church has a history of keeping their flock dumb and subservant.

Collar? no thanks.

I think the guy is retarded, and starred your previous two posts. You're spot on.

Still, I think this guy didn't mean it as it's stated in this thread.

It seems to be bias. The guy is an idiot, so obviously what he said was black and white...eh, some people can still be retarded yet have a bit of depth to them. It happens every once in a while.




Recent converging studies are showing that liberals tend to have a larger and/or more active anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC—useful in detecting and judging conflict and error—and conservatives are more likely to have an enlarged amygdala, where the development and storage of emotional memories takes place.


*


So what about the people who have both? A large amygdala and an enlarged ACC


I don't know. I see valid reasoning from both parties, even though I also see what they promote isn't what is often put in place once they get in office. I see it all. The republican, and democratic deception, and the puppetmasters pulling the strings. I see value in both sides ideas, and have no clue what's truly best.

I think the problem may be that democrats can't relate to the emotional reasoning provided by republicans. Republicans can't relate to the raw critical thinking from Democrats. Both are only part of the equation in my view.

We got mostly half brains out there bitching at the other half they don't even have


Boggles my mind, the whole mess of it all.

Oh, and I watched the video. I can see where he's coming from, and can see how you would just think it's stupid as well. Both views are somewhat valid.

If we look at the history of the conservative republican party in the popular vote, it would appear that the majority rarely support them. Usually they win the popular vote when a really bad democrat runs against them.

I was surprised he lasted as long as he did in the primary. I'd have thought him and Bachman would have been gone way early..


Here's something to scare the beejeesus out of you. Every second-placed runner up to the Republican nomination since 1976 (with the exception of Dubya) has gone to be the nominee in the next major election. That means that if Romney loses, Santorum could be the nominee in 2016.
