: : But back to the bit about all smart people being reds. Sadly, there are plenty of smart people who ain't red. Henry "Vhat, am I a var criminal?" Kissinger comes to mind immediately. However, I think you'll like this quote: I believe it was John Locke who said, "Not all conservatives are stupid people, but all stupid people are conservative."

: Of course, you need to remember that "conservative" in Locke's time meant something different than "conservative" now. Locke's "liberals" are now called "conservatives", at least here in the states.

"Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives." - John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
