43. people drawn to the repug party by definition are fearless and less intelligent

than those drawn to the liberal side.

in other words, if someone was not fearful, they would not be a repug. If they had integrity, decency, caring, they definitely would not be a repug.

so what you're left with on the republican side is the frightened dreggs, scared of their own shadows, grabing what morsels they can for their own survival and cheating to survive whereever they can. many cheat to get their education - so they're not really educated. and they are stupid, so they can't connect the dots, but instead look at any obvious scapegoats.
