    Oh, I disagree. Lots of highly intelligent but extremely selfish and self-centered people adopt "conservative" views...Like Newt Gingrich or Michelle Bachmann.

    But, then again, I haven't seen anyone in politics or the news who IS a true Conservative, in the Buckley/Goldwater mold in many, many years. Mostly reactionaries and corporatists, one trying to justify racism, bigotry and religious intolerance, the other trying to justify the monopolization of wealth. Some do both.

      I used to be a hardcore right-winger but have shifted more towards the center or even a bit left on some things. A few observations:

          I think that since 98% of educators at the college level (who conduct a lot of these types of studies) are liberal as **************** and get wet at anything any democrat says, I'm guessing they wouldn't miss an opportunity to pin anything negative on conservatives.

          Seriously I've never had a teacher/professor that saw any flaw in the Democratic party.

          **************** I had an English professor that just couldn't ****************ing wait to preach how amazing sauce democrats are. IMO he should have shut the **************** up and educated me on whatever we were reading but of course, I digress.

            I live in Oklahoma, and it's a bit different here. I've seen that type of thing for either party, though rarely. I wouldn't want any professor pushing his/her own political or religious views even if I may agree with the views.

                  This is the accurate part:

                  "In other words, it might not be a particular ideology that is linked to stupidity, but extremist views in general."
                  Test the collective IQs of the extremists on both sides and you'll find the idiots. If you're a complete partisan honk for either the Ds or the Rs, your brain don't work good.

                    One could argue that Intelligence and Liberalism = Homo

                    Who gets to gauge intelligence anyway? I know plenty of Doctoral Candidates who couldn't tie their ****************ing shoe without a Hawkings symposium on the topic...I also know many rednecks that can fix just about anything with some spit, a budweiser can, and some gum.

                      And speaking of the media. HONEST question (Im talking reporters and journalists for the most part, not opinion heads)



                      Are they more sympathetic to liberal or conservative views? Do they "paint them and cover them and the politicians of each party "exactly the same? Whatchya guys think?

                                If you are really interested in this topic, check out Ken Wilber / Spiral Dynamics / Integral Theory. Spiral Dynamics is a theory based of 50 years of research of how people's thinking changes over time. Other similar studies confirm the general idea.

                                Basically, as we grow up, we start gaining additional perspectives. As an infant, we care only for ourselves. Then as a child most of us learn to care about / identify with our family / tribe / people like ourselves. The some keep growing and can care for / identify with those outside our tribe / people we don't personally know, those of another race. If you think for a second, concern for those outside our tribe is essential for liberal thinking, less so for conservative thinking.
                                We are not sure why some people get stuck and stop expanding. While this theory does not hold up liberalism as the goal, it does imply the capacity for liberal thinking does come later.

                                You can't discuss political philosophy long before you end up in psychology, that's what this is really all about. If there were knobs on the back of everyone's head for traits like empathy, rigidity, novelty, tradition, I could dial you up a liberal or conservative.

                                Problems with conservative thinking:
                                -xenophobia
                                -dogma
                                -rigidity
                                -hostility to science (it destroys dogma)

                                Problems with liberal (post-modern) thinking:
                                -against good hiearchies, valueless
                                -political correctness
                                -compulsive and relentlessy deconstructs other memes (ideas / worldviews / stages)
                                Breathe in for ten seconds. Breathe out for ten seconds. Repeat for ten minutes.

                                  This. Same goes for meeting an intelligent racist liberal.
