I've wondered: Nate Send a noteboard - 03/02/2012 09:55:14 PM
Social conservatism may be linked to lower IQ in some cases, but I think it's probably unfair to say that there is no merit to social conservatism as a result. I'm not a social conservative, but it doesn't mean they can't have compelling arguments.


Does it ever bother you that fiscal conservatives must have support from social conservatives in order to be elected, and therefore must cater in some measure to their desires? Fiscal conservatism has a lot more merit to me than social conservatism, but I find it difficult to support fiscal conservatives because, in North America at least, social conservatism always seems to come hand in hand because of how the politics work, and in most cases I do not support the general thrust of social conservative ideas. But I'm not a fiscal conservative at heart so I've wondered how that works from your perspective.

I agree. - 03/02/2012 10:48:25 PM 131 Views
Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 134 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 130 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 114 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 141 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 150 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 122 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 84 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 60 Views
Tempting... - 03/02/2012 11:17:43 PM 141 Views
I expected no less. - 05/02/2012 12:25:14 AM 140 Views
Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 127 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 123 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 129 Views
I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM 157 Views
Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 90 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 99 Views
Yes. It is not very likely, though, since no measurement we have done so far indicates that it is so - 05/02/2012 02:28:18 PM 98 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 145 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 118 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 120 Views
Do you not think it's true then? - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM 190 Views
Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 52 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 135 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 143 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 116 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 112 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 112 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 90 Views
