A key leader in the black community and a driving force in support of the lawsuit, who wishes to remain anonymous, bemoaned the “disturbing tendency of black electorates to not elect the smartest and brightest, or even the cleverest.”

    re: "Blacks admit to electing stupid people"

    We all elect stupid people, so, ummm....?

    The poster wth the Marion Barry quote is interesting. If Bush had said that, it wouldn't even make the list of the stupidist (or stupidist sounding)
    things he said.

    All those uber smart leftists that are constantly ragging on conservatives, sound very racist to me. The most conservative sects of american society are blacks and hispanics. Makes me wonder if the reason that the left repeats the meme that conservatives are stupid, is because they think non whites are inherently stupid.

    Also, I always hear about how bad of a president bush and obama are/were. Rarely, if ever, do people criticize "the first black president", when he and his admin laid plenty the groundwork for the mess we find ourselves in today.

    When "everyone knows" something, its usually wrong. The economy was so good in the 90s that nobody bothers to criticize the clinton years, but truth is, he was just as bad a pres if not worse

    #8 Purdue University

    West Lafayette, IN

    Conservative

    As an alum, I have to point out that Purdue isn't THAT conservative. By Bay Area standards it is, but for Indiana its moderate to left wing. Obama's campaign did a lot of organizing among Purdue students in 2008 and that may have been decisive in turning the state blue for the first (and probably last) time in my lifetime

    Fair enough. I wanted to err on the side of overestimating the conservative nature of the top engineering schools to demonstrate that most engineers are liberals.

    I'm still not sure what is STUPID about Marion Barry?

    Is he DUMBER than any other elected official in some measure?

    He got caught doing something illegal. He bounced back from it.

    What he said in that quote is TRUE. He wanted to tell the facts in the way that cast the best light on his district. Because after all the job of a politician is to REPRESENT and be a booster for their constituents. I may not like it, but 99% of it is like advertising, it's bullshit. But is it a LIE or STUPID? No.

    Does a politican EVER SAY "we are proud of our 32 murders this year"? No, they say "we are proud homicides are down X% from last year".

    David Vitter of Louisiana got outed for frequenting prostitutes, and he's still in office. So did only black people vote for him? Or what?

    White evangelicals seem to like a lot DUMBASS YOUNG EARTH CREATIONISTS who think the world is only 6,000 years old and have a lot of anti-science goop clogging their brains. So do "whites admit to electing stupid people" too?

    This thread is racist.

    Surveys I've seen of engineers lean towards "fiscally conservative, socially liberal". But I expect there's some variation between say mechanical engineers and people on the "softer side" as engineering has expanded some of them are nearly management majors. I think of Industrial Systems Engineers like that.

    Yep, I'd agree with that. "Fiscal conservatism" has absolutely nothing to do with "social conservatism". The former means living within your means, staying out of debt, taking only calculated risks, having a fiscal safety net (6 months living expenses). The later refers to the social politics of the right (anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-regulation, pro-hunting, pro-tradition).

    In fact, why even refer to fiscal conservatism as conservatism when it has nothing to do with social conservatism, which is the big set of wedge issues between the two parties, and it has little to do with the fiscal politics of the Republican Party? With the exception of Ron Paul, there hasn't been a fiscally conservative Republican president since Eisenhower. Maybe Nixon was somewhat close, but Reagan and his Republican successors sure aren't.

    Maybe Nixon was somewhat close [to being fiscally conservative].

    Hardly. Nixon campaigned on a "secret plan to end the war" in Viet Nam, then escalated and continued it until he was forced to resign due to the Watergate scandal. Nixon also christened the "War on Drugs," which continues to waste billions annually. When Nixon's spending and other factors caused inflation to increase, he tried to take over the whole economy with wage and price controls, which of course didn't work so then he took the USD off the gold standard. Nixon was too greedy and paranoid and egotistical, as presented in Frost/Nixon, to adhere to the discipline of fiscal conservatism, which requires an essential modesty.

    The basic premise of deficit spending is, "We know better how to spend the wages of future generations than they can ever know themselves." It is the same premise as the religious fundamentalists and pseudo-"liberals" who say, "We know better how other people should live their own lives than they can ever know themselves." Both of these false premises enable imperial patronage networks to rationalize maximizing their own power, which is the goal all along. Fiscal conservatism, and social liberalism, both reflect a philosophy more like what the founders of the republic believed, and that has more recently been called essentialism, i.e. the idea that we don't know everything, in fact we don't know nearly as much as we hope future generations will know, and so we try to promote liberty for people to pursue their own various destinies.

    To the extent that founding philosophy was related to Christianity, it was in the basic principles of trying to see each person as created in the unique image and likeness of God, not "young earth" creationism or the dietary/clothing/sexual restrictions of Leviticus and Paul. But, there were profound disagreements about what individual states should do; Jefferson believed states should not promote religion, while Madison believed they should. That argument has been playing out ever since.

    In the context of the OP, Nixon illustrates that white voters don't always make smart choices either. Even after the publication of the Pentagon Papers, which became the lead story on the evening news on every channel, and which were entered in their entirety into the published Senate record by the great and brave Senator Mike Gravel, nevertheless Americans re-elected Nixon by a margin of 20 points. Coincidentally, that's the same margin by which white voters 40 years later chose - almost incredibly - Romnesia. And Nixon was up against a white guy, Senator George McGovern, whom RFK had described as possibly the only decent man in the Senate.

    Liberals like me created the advanced technologies, not corporations. Individual engineers, human beings, are responsible for every single technological advancement ever made.

    Furthermore, we engineers tend be to damn liberal and graduate from liberal colleges like MIT, CalTech, Berkeley. There aren't too many engineers coming out of the Jimmy Swaggart Bible College.

    Smart, educated people tend to be rational, liberal, science-oriented atheists whether you like it or not. I'm the perfect example of this.

    Oh cuz you know if you went to a liberal university you are automatically a liberal right? oh yeah and the only "smart" people in the world are engineers... hahaha this is laughable

    Fair enough... So the last Republican president that we can claim was a fiscal conservative by any reasonable criteria is Eisenhower, over 52 years ago. So how are Republicans the party of fiscal conservatism?

    Dan,

    Although you point out the fact that repubs are not fiscally conservative, the fact is that NEITHER repubs nor democrats are fiscally conservative.

    I never claimed that either anywhere. You'd realize that if you would shut the fuck up long enough to read other people's posts instead of skimming them. You'd be a lot more intelligent if you listened more than you spoke. Plus, fewer people would realize how dumb you are.

    you mad dude? Its quite funny you go on this rant about how I should read things more carefully when in fact you should actually read what I wrote.
    All i did was simply point out this fact that both repubs and demos fail to be fiscally conservative in response to you pointing out the repubs are not fiscally conservative. My point was that BOTH parties are not fiscally conservative. So what exactly did I accuse you of claiming? hahah Chill out bro and dont get your panties in a bunch.
