I think the guy is right. Sorry, but in my experience, it’s true. Make a list of the great minds of our time, the true intellectuals, and you’ll be forced to agree.
Of course, being intelligent doesn’t make a person right. It simply means they are better at reasoning. American liberals (”conservatives”) of the Rush Limbaugh/Sarah Palin/NASCAR variety tend to be suspicious of reasoning, and of educated people. It’s a cultural thing. This is not a criticism; it’s an observation.
Perhaps someday a true American, intellectual Conservatism will rise.
While I will not deign to contradict your admission that you're a comparative idiot when stood next to a Liberal (you are doubtless the inarguable authority there), I will ask you to please not generalize on behalf of the reat of us, who know such blithering tripe by its proper name.

Hayek, Lord Monckton, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams?

I am an engineer. Going through the training that an engineer must gives you the ability to think clearly and reason.
I have found that most liberals, when you sound them out on their positions, employ faulty reasoning almost always.
Of course, when you find a liberal engineer (I work with a couple) you have to question how someone with that training could believe the way they do. The cognitive dissonance must be something terrible.

Disagree here also. They disagree with pointy headed stupidity gussied up as "reasoning" (to use your words) that doesn't square with their innate common sense. There's nothing "stupid" about that.
“Perhaps someday a true American, intellectual Conservatism will rise.”
So, you missed that whole Founding Fathers thing ...eh.
Liberal thinkers are the antithesis of thinking, they are intellectually masturbating morons.

Is your response satire ? What liberal reasons as well as Tom Sowell, Charles Krauthammer, or Victor Davis Hanson? Your post is truly bizarre.
Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, William F. Buckley come to mind.
The true sign of intelligence is to see truth when the masses are utterly blind to it.
I am reminded of a incident that happened when I was in the sixth grade. I was with a group of girl scouts who were trying to pour fruit juice out of a large can. The can had one hole. I pointed out to my fellow girl scouts that the reason the juice was not flowing freely was due to the fact that the can had one hole. They were creating a vacuum inside the can. The can needed a second hole. They were furious me!
Sometimes the masses will insist on trying to pour juice out of a can with one hole. The creative person will see the solution and be the sole person to point out that the can needs two holes.
