The problem with most college kids (at least where I go, UNH) is that people are exposed to these ideas that seem great on paper, yet epicly fail in reality. Liberals I encounter in college have this rosy picture of everyone around the world holding hands and singing whilst running towards a glorious sunset of lollipops and unicorns. Reality couldn't be further from the truth.    
   
Obama is a fantastic wordsmith. He has failed to yield any results. The slow economic recovery and job creation going on have absolutely NOTHING to do with him. I voted for Gary Johnson. I really think 			****		 in the EU and US is gonna hit the fan hard if this insane spending continues.

Tell me more how the Earth is flat and how an unregulated free market doesn't lead to a distribution of wealth along a Pareto distribution?
User avatar #226 to #221 - spartusee (11/11/2012) [-]
Well, no one will tell you more on how the earth is flat, even though you believe anything Obama sais, dont you? And a Pareto distribution? Do you even know what the **** you are talking about? This is America not Italy.

>Oh god my sides
User avatar #292 to #257 - cmcghie (11/11/2012) [-]
Trust me, I don't believe much in the trickle down effect. I do believe ridiculous stimulus spending and bank bailouts are a complete waste of taxpayer funds. I would like to see a return to fiscal responsibility and accountability. These means not giving bailouts to failing businesses and banks. Obama has had multiple scandals involving green energy, and allotting funds to them from the taxpayer's pocket.

I think that social safety nets are due for reform. Social security was designed to support an old person through the final 5 years of life, not be a 15-20 year stipend. With people on average living to 80, it should start at 75, not 65. Welfare should NOT encourage people to stay on it. Welfare babies and other such ******** need to go. It should be a temporary fix between jobs, and only be available if you can prove you are out of work, but are hunting for a job/getting job interviews done. I call ******** to anyone saying they can't get at least a part time minimum wage job. (Yes I know this won't pay all the bills, and I believe this is where partial welfare should kick in, to make ends meet and reward people actually trying).

Illegals need to NOT get any benefits at all. No anchor babies, no ******* bending to them at all. If they come here injured and are under 18, they can get medical attention. Over 18? Tough **** , buddy.

I was just pointing out that Liberals aren't the only ones that sometimes like to "have this rosy picture of everyone around the world holding hands and singing whilst running towards a glorious sunset of lollipops and unicorns".

I don't really care about where you stand though. Sorry bro.

User avatar #244 - durkadurka (11/11/2012) [-]
It seems like they're taking quantity into account rather than quality. They're simply counting any college degree as better education. A guy who just got his degree in underwater basket weaving is counted as better educated than a guy whose spent many years mastering a trade. That just doesn't make much sense, especially given the many colleges that just take your money and spit you out with a degree.

You also don't know how many of the college educated actually voted or who they voted for.

It seems to me that the creator of this knew how they wanted the chart to look from the beginning and simply selected data that got them the result they wanted. I doubt the information is indicative of anything.

Have you ever seen fields of grass stretch out past the horizon?

word. uh yeah, I have. MS has a lot of farm land

where do you live in mississippi cause its pretty much where you live in the state that determines the level of retardation you have to deal with
User avatar #279 to #275 - mynameislego (11/11/2012) [-]
northwestern section just south of memphis
User avatar #293 to #279 - BeaverBalls ONLINE (11/11/2012) [-]
eeyup youre in *********** the only other place that is worse is the delta where the smartest man there has a 5th grade education

central and southern mississippi (around the coast) has more normal people with average intelligence
User avatar #300 to #293 - mynameislego (11/11/2012) [-]
haha yea. but the further south you go, the more barren and deserted the state feels. sometimes the peace and quiet is nice but to go from a state with about 21 mil pop. to one thats got only 3 mil sucks for social experience. you seem to know a bit, where are you from?
User avatar #310 to #300 - BeaverBalls ONLINE (11/11/2012) [-]
im in central mississippi but if you ever head down to jackson watch where you look because ******* will shoot you for looking in the wrong direction
User avatar #313 to #310 - mynameislego (11/11/2012) [-]
haha, trust me, I live in Walls right between Tunica and South Memphis...same **** up here. I stopped at a gas station a few months ago and the clerk and another customer took one look at me in a collared shirt and a yankees hat and gave me the stereotypical, "you ain't from round these parts are yuh?"
User avatar #261 to #222 - futuramafan (11/11/2012) [-]
why the **** would you move to, what is by every measure, the worst state in the country?
User avatar #295 to #261 - mynameislego (11/11/2012) [-]
my girlfriend (who is also from ny) lives here, went to ole miss for law school so i moved down almost 2 years ago figuring we'd move back to ny by now but we haven't yet. probably move back to ny in another year or so once we're more financially stable
User avatar #317 to #295 - futuramafan (11/11/2012) [-]
ok good. come home soon, brother, stay safe among the subhumans for now.
User avatar #321 to #317 - mynameislego (11/11/2012) [-]
haha will do bro. hold down ny til i get back.

Just because someone is "educated" does not mean that they are "intelligent". An education does not mean that you are smart. All having an education proves is that you are capable of affording one. There are plenty of people in Maryland (which is my home state) that fit this picture's definition of "educated" that are complete morons.

User avatar #97 - jdouglas (11/11/2012) [-]
well...my dad graduated from Harvard Med school at the top of his class and voted for Romney. he's pretty educated.
User avatar #105 to #97 - newsmyrna (11/11/2012) [-]
Well my dad went to Yale University to use their library bathroom one time and he voted for Romney too.
User avatar #86 - brettyoke (11/11/2012) [-]
Neat. On the other hand, it's a proven statistic that more educated people tend to vote republican, so something is putting off my ******** alarm at the moment.
User avatar #87 to #86 - kanatana (11/11/2012) [-]
Go ahead, do the research. It'll take three minutes.

I'll wait right here.
User avatar #94 to #87 - brettyoke (11/11/2012) [-]
I looked around for a bit but could not find anything confirming it either way. Most sites don't have any facts, but simply say "education and voting is unrelated."

All I have for you is my American Government textbook...
User avatar #99 to #94 - kanatana (11/11/2012) [-]
Don't worry, I did the real research for you. This is, indeed, accurate. No bull **** .

Also, the most Republican states up there? Of them, eight of them are in the top ten highest rate of teen pregnancies.
User avatar #89 to #87 - cupcakedevourer (11/11/2012) [-]
kanatana! You changed your profile pic! God, it kept confusing me...

I just figured out that this content is from a website titled "Democraticunderground"

Not biased at all.

Did you know that most of those "worst-educated states" also have the highest population of black people and most welfare-recipiants so i think this correlation is not a causality
User avatar #21 to #15 - trifton (11/10/2012) [-]
i live in west virginia, and there isnt too many blacks here
#24 to #21 - dubsmckenzie (11/10/2012) [-]
Hardly anyone here voted for Obama because he closed the coal mines and put people out of jobs.

Common terms I hear about him are: " ****** ", "Muslim", "Communist", and " ****** Muslim Communist".
User avatar #179 to #15 - natedimes (11/11/2012) [-]
Not tryna take sides here, but I think the post clearly implies that more well-educated people voted for Obama regardless of their race. Again, I'm not taking sides, that's just what the post implies.

Also, most black people voted for Obama. If they were high in population in the "worst-educated" states, why did Romney gets most of his votes from there?
#72 to #15 - anon (11/11/2012) [-]
LOL, where do you get your facts from? None of those states are even in the TOP 10 of having the highest black population. Also considering 94% of blacks voted for Obama, your statement makes no sense. Nice try, you racist bigot.

Romney was governor of massachusetts
#162 to #149 - anon (11/11/2012) [-]
There's a reason why he was a 1 term governor. He retired due to not having a chance at reelection..
User avatar #150 to #149 - ImaTumor (11/11/2012) [-]
Then they know by first had experience how badly Romney would **** up your country.
#154 to #150 - acerose (11/11/2012) [-]
Which is exactly why they're the top spot on the education charts?
User avatar #185 to #150 - npfortytwo (11/11/2012) [-]
Then why did they vote for him in the first place?
