Kevin Glass says: "I have no clue where it comes from, but..." "This... is the kind of lazy attempt... that actively misinforms people...

But it is strongly correlated to ignorance. If you believe that a) you are paying higher taxes than the historical average in the US, b) that government revenue is inversely proportional to tax rates and c) that increasing government spending "hurts" the economy then i) you are IGNORANT and ii) you were more likely to have voted for Romney. FACT!

Actually, yes. Whether we're "paying higher rates" is irrelevant. That we should be happy we're not getting screwed is hardly laudable. Second, the tax base increases when more people work and tax RATES are lower overall, resulting in MORE tax revenue. This is proven over and over but here's where your lack of education clearly kicks in. Third, increasing government spending hurts the national debt when you don't have the tax base and you borrow heavily from other countries. Why this needs to be explained at all tells us all that liberals can indeed regurgitate their leftist professors, so if that counts as "education" I guess you guys win.

Hah! Those dumb conservatives, they all vote for Mitt Romney. And they're dumb. Well, now that we've all confirmed our elitist preconceived biases about conservatives, it's off to the wine bar to celebrate eh?

Not so fast. (Obviously. Why would you be readin this otherwise?) Pretty much every exit poll shows very little correlation between education and electoral outcomes. Here are the...
