I have noticed that the most fervent "patriots" in this country are the least educated and most religious around us.

Seems that their religious zealotry goes hand in hand with their feelings of patriotic superiority; both of which go with their misguided belief that America was founded on xian principles, even in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary.

Be on the watch out for Sarah Palin in 2012. It is sicking to me to see this woman still in the spot light as a real contender for 2012...

IMHO, true believers (substitute patriot) in just about any situation tend to be the scariest and most unstable. I think this indirectly supports your observation.

In both cases, you have people who only see things in black and white, denying any shades of gray.

Funny how the least educated are the most conservative and patriotic. Now think of the people that have been in charge of our school systems.....

I hate to generalize it this way, because I have known very intelligent, conservative folk and very unintelligent, liberal folk. However, on average, it does seem to me to be the case as Misty states it.

And we didn't even toss in the power variable. And I may have perpetuated a stereotype but stereotypes do have some basis in fact.
