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 171 Views
Yeah, I am unsure whether to be impressed or disappointed. - 05/02/2012 02:38:05 AM 245 Views
That is a logical and reasonable assessment. - 04/02/2012 08:59:59 PM 189 Views
You think very well. - 05/02/2012 04:12:11 AM 180 Views

By referencing it… - 03/02/2012 10:50:59 PM 185 Views
That's an odd idea. - 03/02/2012 11:10:31 PM 226 Views
It was a mostly facetious comment…. - 03/02/2012 11:49:28 PM 151 Views
Clearly you endorse it. - 05/02/2012 02:23:41 AM 117 Views
Only endorsing its validity, not its soundness. *NM* - 04/02/2012 02:24:24 AM 82 Views
Tempting... - 03/02/2012 11:17:43 PM 210 Views
I expected no less. - 05/02/2012 12:25:14 AM 247 Views
Still fun though - 05/02/2012 01:30:26 AM 203 Views
Well, that is the main thing. - 05/02/2012 02:25:36 AM 213 Views
Well, racists are dumb. What's to discuss? - 04/02/2012 01:23:27 AM 171 Views
I think that generally agreed, though we need a study PROVING what we already know. - 05/02/2012 12:41:26 AM 244 Views
Proving is something you do in maths, not science. - 05/02/2012 09:05:30 AM 131 Views
So the Moon might still be made of green cheese? - 05/02/2012 10:20:57 AM 161 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 126 Views
Oh, let us not go THERE. - 05/02/2012 02:54:30 PM 257 Views
Bad comparison - 05/02/2012 03:36:12 PM 173 Views
Well, that last part will make sure this gets ugly.... - 04/02/2012 02:05:11 AM 156 Views
Do you not think it's true then? - 04/02/2012 07:32:13 AM 274 Views
Same here *NM* - 04/02/2012 12:13:44 PM 86 Views
Not in my experience. - 04/02/2012 04:17:01 PM 187 Views
Granted, you do move in different circles than I (or Jens, for that matter.) - 04/02/2012 10:24:52 PM 220 Views
Corfirmational bias much? - 04/02/2012 04:25:24 PM 193 Views
I did mention that I didn't care enough to look into it. - 04/02/2012 10:22:09 PM 168 Views
As a few others have noted, it is important to preserve the causality chain. - 05/02/2012 02:35:02 AM 172 Views
I dont see that it matters. - 13/02/2012 01:40:45 AM 139 Views
