What's the reason so many astrology buffs vote Democrat? Their smarts?
Oh please. You're going to equate that to the racism, sexism, religiosity, nationalism, homophobia, climate denial of the Republican party?

No one said there weren't any stupid Democrats. But the GOP is where you find the proper weapons-grade stupidity. Democrat stupidity tends to be reactor-grade, and there is far less of it, and it tends to be far less harmful.

Religiosity yes. In fact, it's worse than religion.

There is nothing wrong with "nationalism." That's just the identification with one's own nation and its interests. So what? Now white nationalism or black nationalism - that's bad, because it suggests a nation based on a race.

And if you talk to most on the left, anyone is racist just for being Republican. You don't even have to hold a racist belief. They declare policy views to be racist. Against Obamacare? Racist. Against illegal immigration? Racist.

The comparison was that the Democrats were smarter than the Republicans.

Democrat stupidity includes an overall view that socialism is good, and economically sound. There is far more belief in the paranormal, astrological, and various absurd nonsense like crystals, homeopathy, and anti-GMO nonsense.

Why don't you just admit that you're a conservative, right-wing Republican, anyway? What the hell is the point of this charade of yours? You spew right-wing shit constantly, you link to far-right propaganda, you vote for far-right politicians, you clearly hate Democrats and liberals, but then you claim to be liberal rather than conservative? Why? Do you think convincing your perceived enemies that you're really one of them will make them more open to your ideas? This is some of the weirdest shit I've ever seen.

eta: And by the way, nationalism is just another form of collective narcissism, like racism, sexism, religion, homophobia... It is a fucking cancer.

Or did you mean 'a mixed economy' when you used the word 'socialism'? Even then I doubt that Democrat voters would support a Nordic nation style mixed economy, (support for which would not be 'stupidity' in my view) . If they did, Bernie Sanders would have been a shoe-in at the previous primaries and every Democratic candidate would be a political Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lookalike.

I don't see any evidence presented showing that conservatives have more common sense than liberals.

they don't have more common sense, what they are supposed to have is a moral compass, so called values, which, like chivalry to the knights of old, seem only to be abided by when it is convenient.

I would like to see what an American socialist looks like. A very rare breed that is certain.

No, I mean socialism. The new wave of Democrats, and the Sanders wing of the old wave, are socialists.

From the Gallup poll: Positive view of capitalism 47% Positive view of socialism 57% :lol:

Also, positive view of the following:
Small business 92%
Entrepreneurs 86%
Free enterprise 79%

That's for Dems and Reps, yes, but it seems when the first question was asked the Dems did think of socialism in terms of a mixed economy.

I have become used to your spin doctoring and selective quoting quite some time ago.

I wrote a brief diction rant about Kanazawa's use of 'incredulous' where the proper word would have been 'incredible' or 'discreditable.' However, my intellectual curiosity prevailed over my pedantry and I did some research.

I found that writers were using 'incredulous' in that context up until the late 18th century. It was revived as a malapropism in the late 20th century and is recognized by Merriam-Webster, though they have a note saying, 'it is widely regarded as an error resulting from confusion with incredible, and its occurrence in published writing is rare.' With the witting or unwitting assistance of people like Kanazawa, ignorance will likely triumph and the circle will be complete. Trust your feelings over your reason; it's just common sense.

They really mean "social democracy". Unfortunately it appears that Americans don't actually know what socialism is.
