Bill Whittle nails it regarding Conservatives:
Note that Mr Whittle does not talk about Republicans — he speaks about Conservatives. And note that Mr Whittle doesn’t talk about how people think things should be, but how they are. Conservatives aren’t popular with the current generation of American Low Information Voters (ALIVs) because they want to know what can be given to them — “for free” — from their government.
When you have an electorate that doesn’t realize the money coming from government originates from the pockets of taxpayers, you have an electorate with the average IQ of nematodes — courtesy of state-run educational systems elevating feelings over facts.
