Skip to comments.Study: SAT Scores and Republican Party Affiliation are CLOSELY LINKED, and With Home Prices As Well!
Posted on 11/14/2004 12:29:15 PM PST by CaptIsaacDavis
Statistical analyses of relationships between SAT scores, Republican Party affiliation, spending on education, ethnic compositions of towns, and tax rates reveal that among those factors (that is, excluding financial components) the ones that matter most in driving comparative and competitive home sales prices (by town medians over time, and over the long-run) are those related to CULTURE -- SAT scores and Republican Party affiliation (and all the value choices that such affiliation incorporates). You may have had a gut feeling that it pays to own a home in a town with high SAT scores and strong republican values. Now here's the statistical proof -- from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, no less.

I could never understand the Democrat meme that Republicans are a bunch of idiot hicks, but at the same time we are the corporate CEOs and millionaires who enjoy all the tax breaks.
Just when I was getting used to being called a slack-jawed yokel.
Because their contention, such as it is, is that republicans are made up of two distinct groups. The first group is the cliche of the big business, country club, CEO Republican whose concerns are in the secular world of less regulation, tax relief and oter monetary issues. The second group is the low-income, "values based" Republican who fears and hates the urban, hyper-educated post-modern, secular world.
Republicans are good neighbors and smart people. No surprise there that they would create a desirable town to live in.
Sighs- waiting patiently for the next label application:)
LMFAO, I hadn't heard that one!!
The Democrats' invectives don't have to make sense. Their sociopathic leaders know this. The rank and file Democrats are to stupid to question what their leaders tell them to think.
They can call us what they wish, as long as we know after each insult should come the phrase " who kicked our a$$e$".
I must have misplaced mine too.
Interesting dicotomy isn`t it?

Why not? Democrats are the over-educated with advanced degrees as well as those too stupid to understand a ballot!
We are fortunate to be living in republican Clark county in the blue state of Washington.
We are fortunate to be living in republican Clark county in the blue state of Washington. Yes we have good SAT scores and high home values here.
Some folk'll never lose a toe,
but then again some folk'll.
Here's Cletus, the slack-jawed yokel!
Well gawl dang, I sure do wish thems experts'd make up their minds me and how dumb I is.
Republicans should stop sending their kids to colleges where 90% or more of the faculty are leftist donkeys. If you are a graduate of same, stop sending donations. Forget about complaining to the dean or president of the university. They have small, closed minds.
Around my general neck of the woods the property values and SAT scores are lower in Maxine Water's district, than in Dana Rahrbacher's.
Bringing it even closer to home, the property values and SAT scores are lower in Lorreta Sanchez' district, than in Dana Rohrabacher's.
Cruisin' for drugs isn't a problem in owner occupied, single family neighborhoods. It is in dense, apartment rental discticts.
Etc. Education correlates to income correlates to crime correlates to out of wedlock births correlates to school dropouts correlates to prison, and around and around.
Read "The Bell Curve" all the way to the end.
A person hoping to "lift" himself/herself up might first move to an area where people have what they want.
Rub shoulders with people you want to be like. Find out what they did, to get where they got.
Then go do what they did.
Do the do, to get the get.
I was an SAT National Merit Scholar, and scored 99% composite percentile on my GRE....and am a Republican Party precinct captain. Our county party chairman is a math and physics teacher. A fellow that worked the tables for me ALL DAY LONG at the general election this year is a physicist with a subcontractor to a major defense contractor.
I went to a Cowboy Action Shooting match today over at the Saint Charles Sportsman's Club. (These people are Red-Staters to the core...........). I shot with doctors, lawyers, architects....one fellow was a college professor lecturing on Elizabethan English and Old English.....I would guess that the median family income of the folks there was at least twice the national average. And guess what? NONE of us was born into privelege.
I'm a country boy from rural Kentucky (not much different than Corporal Blake Miller, who has had a lot of exposure here lately). The Maryland friends I have grew up working hard in New Carrolton or Dundalk or Edgewater (you Maryland folks will understand what I mean here).
The point of this ramble is this: The Democrats have no clue about what they are fighting...........the tide of History favors the Brave and the Prepared.
I was pessimistic for a long time, but I am becoming optimitsic. The future is ours. :>)
I'm from Clark County, Kentucky!!!
So what they are saying is Republicans are just Smarter ?
Heheheheh I like it.....
Impossible, all the smart people are in blue states!?
A new computer has been invented. Tell the computer your IQ and it will hold an appropriate conversation. First guy's IQ is 144, so the computer talks about Plato, Mozart, etc. Second guy's IQ is 110 so the computer talks about baseball. Third guy's IQ is 75, so the computer says to the guy, "So how are things going with the Democrats?"
