    slant towards the Republicans as being the party that attracts those who refudiate the knowledge from schools, government agencies or other organizations.  Authoritarian trends where people look to authorities to tell them what to believe, how to act and generally make the decisions for them tends to be a Republican trend, one that is exploited again and again to promote the Republican agenda.  That is why Faux Noise is so integral to their plans - they get their message out using the propaganda and they disparage anyone who dares disagree.  They aren't about "do the research and make up your own mind".  They tell you what they want you to think and sadly many Republicans follow it unquestioningly.  The Republican war on public schools has many aims, but one is to discourage independent thought and questioning authority the way many actors have done throughout history.  

    Yes, there are people who see government conspiracies behind everything including fluoridated water, vaccinations and "Clean Coal" and in some cases they may be right, but in all cases, doing your own research should be encouraged.  Democrats for the most part do encourage that.  Republicans, for the most part, discourage it.
