    Because it takes a village to raise idiots tricked into thinking they CAN be self-sufficient but they just don't want to?

    Obviously, those idiots are drawn to the larger villages.

    don't get mad, but i think it might have something to do with the huge variety of life in cities.
    For example people are exposed to lots of different people, lifestyles, races, ways of living, ways of thinking etc etc...in a sense maybe they are even exposed to too much!. i think this overexposeure leads in a way to a kind of relativism, in that people see that there is not one right way of living, but there are many, not one right job, there are many, not one right ethnic cusine, but many etc etc... i think this realisation leads people to be more tolerant of difference in many ways. one of the ways this is reflected is in a more liberal, libertarian political viewpoint. just a theory but it makes sense to me.

    No. It's because you metrosexuals are so anxious to be considered intellectual and chic that willingly eschew the knowledge inherent in your own cultural heritage in order to appear "open minded" and "politicially correct". That's the real truth. Don't get mad.

    :beer: Let's have a Harp! That stuff rocks!

    I personally believe it is the education system in bigger cities. They are extremely liberal and if your viewpoint is different than theirs, especially in college, then you are considered, a racist, homophob, idiot, you name it.

    The smaller towns I have lived in have a much more nuetral education system, might be because parents are more involved, I don't know.

    Also, it is true, more people suckin off of the ol' gov ***

    what knowledge inherant in cultural heritage?
    i'm naturally open minded and i don't like political correctness as it is a form of censorship.
    remember i'm a relativist and i don't believe in truth, only what works!
    i won't get mad

    i know what my money is on!

    The night of the election, Ron Reagan Jr. called rural America "homophobes". Frankly, he is the BIGGEST homophobe on TV. Any gay man that denies he is gay for whatever personal reasons, is, in my opinion, a homophobe himself. If he is so proud of homosexuals, then HE needs to come out of the closet. It is so obvious he is gay it is pathetic, but he continues to hide behind his wife and kids in an attempt to appeal to an audiance.
