Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Doing the Math?

According to Ramesh Ponnuru:

As the Republican Party has gotten more socially conservative, its voter base has become lower in income.
According to Brilliant at Breakfast:
You'd think its voter base would do the math already.
Let's see … I assume that means they would vote against environmental regulations that raise the cost of living, vote for school vouchers, vote against the exclusionary zoning designed to keep the riffraff out, and boycott overpriced organic vegetables. Nowadays, that does not mean voting for Democrats.

On the other hand, lower does not mean low. The fact that today's Republicans are more open to lower classes does not mean they kicked out the rich.

Picking up a rental car on my first visit back to the U.S. following the 2004 elections, I was surprised to hear the gate attendant, who saw from the paperwork I lived in Germany, say, "you better have voted for Bush!"

He'd never heard of Badnarik.
