re: What percentage of electorate is ignorantly 'red'?


I think this depends on how you are defining "ignorantly" here.

In my experience, exceedingly few people even make an ATTEMPT to be thoroughly informed regarding the issues of the nation. Vast majority have their basic responses and if you're lucky, they "research" it for about 10 minutes.

That said, if we're talking just blindingly dumb as frick stupid, not just ignorant, then the left has damned near cornered the market. Let's be blunt, the black vote alone helps them win that contest.

Are there just stupid as frick right leaning voters? Yeah. But truth is, a very solid number of poor/stupid whites vote dem. Combine them with the basically 100% of poor ignorant blacks that vote dem and that contest is a massacre.

Of course a better question might be do either party WANT an educated electorate?
I think they rather us be bickering over abortion and gun control than paying attention to what they are actually doing.

I am guessing you have strong misconceptions about much of the rural south.

Probably.

When it comes to politics, I would guess most people fit the "ignorant" mold. Outside of a few issues, they just spew talking points.

I spent a year in SoCal. I wouldn't be throwing stones.
Alabama is now rated atop 5 state in which to do business.
And Huntsville has the largest % of people per capita holding advanced degrees in the nation.

So, frick you buddy.

Alabama is not what people think. There are these small pockets, but it's nothing like, LA fir instance. I grew up in Harvey and it was 10 times more racially divided than Auburn

Agreed. Our forefathers would be shocked at how deliberately ignorant we are. How we gravitate to those opinions that reinforce our beliefs. Not a lot of self awareness in the electorate today.

Do you lie often? Being a member of the left and claiming to never have heard of Alinsky is either an obvious lie, or gets you into the ignorant pack. Which one is it?

Considerably lower than the Dems. It's automatic to vote yourself a safety net or other free government benefits. It requires a bit more thought to vote for someone who espouses personal responsibility.

Lets call you out for being one of that pack of ignorant fricks as you didn't miss one oppurtunity to use the Alinsky methodology of marginalizing people in your post. Dems don't vote "just because", they vote for the maximum amount of "free shit" they can enrich themselves with for continuing thier support of the porch sitting masters they bow before.

You're what's wrong with America.

Frustration with the welfare state is what's wrong with this country?
Funny I thought that was one of the few things which most working Americans agreed on.

Oh boy.

I don't know anything is wrong with America. It functions how it is supposed to function.

You probably don't realize it but you need all the ideas from every interest group, single issue voter and those who really care about society as a whole.

I guess I am part of the ignorant base.

No. Calling every democrat a "taker" is the problem. Be frustrated all you like, but don't lump the whole welfare state in with the entire party.

Too much of that on both sides. Probably isn't one person on here that agrees on every issue but we seem to think there are "two sides."

I'd say it's closer to 90% on both sides.
