    to a research paper I wrote back in college that explains Conservative thinking versus...well, everyone else.

    "Education is, in every nation, the surest guarantee of public happyness." -- President George Washington

    "Why should we subsidize intellectual curiosity?" -- President Ronald Reagan

    Note:  Reading those two quotes while listening to Dream Theater's Panic Attack will put you in the mood of how the typical Republican feels, most of the time.

    "Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so." - Bertrand Russell

      You might include one of my favorites from Will Rogers:

      "We should prohibit education!  If it works as well as prohibition against alcohol, we'll have the smartest population in the world in just a few years."

      Dick Cheney said, "Pi$$ on 'em!" And, Ronald Reagan replied, "That's a Great Idea. Let's Call it 'Trickle Down Economics!"
