No Wonder Republicans Want to Cut Funding for Education

What makes this even more ironic is that it is based on data from Fox Business. According to that same data, states that voted for Mitt Romney not only have fewer people with college degrees, they have lower median household incomes and more people below the poverty line.

    California and the rest of the West coast may have lots of college-educated people, but expressed as a percentage it doesn’t make the top ten.

    Is this irony, plan, or a correlation? According to the Huffington Post, children of low intelligence have a tendency to grow up to vote Republican.

    Of course, it is a plan. This is exactly what Hitler and other dictators have used. “Keep people uneducated” Education is what keeps us from allowing a dictator in office.

  5. Nothing new, though. Cicero, back in the days of the Roman Republic, wrote about the vital need of an educated citizenry for a civil republic.

    Looking at the original Fox article, except for New York, the poverty level for each state matches up as might be expected, less education, more poverty. Looks like some of the 47% voted for Romney. Guess they weren’t intelligent enough figure out he was talking about them, or they just voted a straight “Bible” ticket. I wonder if Billy Graham will switch Mormon back to cult status?
