"They promote Liberal concepts and stifle free thinking and conservative concepts."
"'Higher' education is America is a hotbed of liberal indoctrination, so yeah, it's "what they learn." "
"the liberal agenda forcing their beliefs on our children"
"communist sympathizing, washed up hippes"

3. What they require the believe in something is faith.
Unfortunately, they invest their faith in positions which have been proven to be failures and ideas which have been proven to be lies.

2. I think its more a case of the undereducated being gullible and falling hook line....
and sinker for the BS that Rush and company are shoveling.

A lot of them are to stupid to realize they are voting against their own best interests.

4. Getting them to vote against their own best interests was easy
all Reagan had to do was tell them someone else was getting something they weren't getting.

8. Educated = Liberal
That's what I get from it... and I'm sure that's why they don't want us educated. Once a person learns a little something, they go all Lib on your ass!

:rofl:

GEEEEEEZ!

11. Bush: "In Texas, we don't do nuance"
Both Joe Biden and reporter Candy Crowley recall Bush saying this to them on two separate occasions.

Authoritarians don't like complex analysis of situations that require deep thought processes resulting from an academic background.
