    My dad is quite certain I became a liberal because I was brainwashed by my college education. To be fair, a political theory class did push me in the direction of atheism, but I was a Democrat at a very young age.

    I think it is an article of faith for some on the right that a magical liberalizing process happens on the college campus. Perhaps because they swallow whole whatever they hear from Rush and Fox they just assume we on the left do the same. Projection, I believe they call it.

    The feeling of entitlement in this country isn't coming from the poor. The rich think that having almost everything isn't enough. They want it all. -luckylizard

      "Laws for the liberal education of youth, especially of the lower class of people, are so extremely wise and useful, that, to a humane and generous mind, no expense for this purpose would be thought extravagant.”

      He kind of knew that through personal experience. He was born to a shoemaker and an illiterate mother. It was his education and his acquisition of reading and writing skills that made him who and what he was. Massachusetts liberal!
