and that's true generally of intelligent, logical people compared to non-conservatives! I also am not the smartest knife in the drawer... I admit that which is contrary to non-conservatives who not only "feel" (NOT THINK) they are more intelligent but will tell you they are! I am not prone to hyperbole, not saying I sometimes lapse.. but again unlike non-conservatives I not only recognize BUT I can admit it! I AM prone to substantiating with sources my comments. For example.. I did a "google" for "liberals are more intelligent" and one of the first citation was: "Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives" LiveLeak.com - Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives Not only am I "substantiating" BUT the title is so illustrative of the liberal pomposity! THINK of it.. the pomposity to WITHOUT ANY VALIDATION, empirical studies.. ASSUME "Liberals ARE MORE INTELLIGENT"! This liberal bent site just went on the arrogant assumption LIBERALS ARE more intelligent! Didn't cite any studies, facts,etc. "Liberals JUST ARE!" Assumption! So as a NON-LIBERAL at least in most "conventional" labeling, I am not more intelligent! Unlike most liberals "I KNOW that I don't KNOW" and I generally don't assume! I admit I'm wrong.. not frequently BUT MORE OFTEN then Liberals! I would rather provide FACTS then hyperbole! And I am proud unlike most liberals to be an American! I am proud that the USA is an exceptional country made up of "exceptional" people that were confined by their home countries because of religious (Iran) ,limited educational institutions,by their countries societies (caste system!), politics (Syria?) and government ideologies! And I am not the exception.. by a 2 to 1 margin! 1) 2 times as many people consider themselves as conservatives then liberal! 2) More "independents" lean towards conservatives then towards liberals! The Gallup survey found that 40 percent of Americans consider themselves conservative; 35 percent consider themselves moderate; and 21 percent see themselves as liberal. Meanwhile, independents are mostly moderate (41 percent), but skew more toward conservatism (35 percent) than liberalism (20 percent).
