Good political radio show about the virtue of small towns.

It is a bit long, but I thought that it was an interesting show.  I was able to listen to this on my iPhone while I was driving and shopping.

Trump does not do well among educated people who are more discriminating when it comes to specific plans. Anybody with a masters degree or higher support Trump out there?

John Coffey Does it surprise you that people who spend up to seven years in government funded indoctrination centers, where the ratio of Democrat to Republican professors has been shown in some cases to be 15 to 1, turn out liberal?

Nick Paleveda Educated people tend to be more liberal as they are trained to think. Uneducated people are conservative as they are trained to obey.

John Coffey What an elitist position!   People who benefit from government spending, even if that is a publicly subsidized education, are going to lean toward government spending. Since the professors and public teachers all benefit from government spending, they are going favor government spending when educating the masses. But people who can actually think, and aren't just indoctrinated, realize that taking from one person to enrich someone else is stealing, and realize that excessive government is the path to bankruptcy and collapse. Sorry that we disagree. Best wishes, John.
