Recently, there was a question about "what was your college major". I noticed that many of the moms who had concrete, marketable majors were more conservatives here on CM. Also, those moms typically had better jobs and a more stable living situation.
Do you feel there is a correlation? Does this prove the "art student, turned struggling artist, liberal who uses medical marijuana" stereotype?

I think undergraduate degrees that require additional years in academia (excluding law or medical fields) result in advanced liberalism.
I can't tell you how many debates I have had with numerous liberal professors in my current studies. And.. Actually~ they don't even debate. They state their liberal views and there is no other argument that is acceptable. EVEN when there is documented proof. But, it makes me lean more to the "right" with every "debate"... Can be fun at times. :P I document EVERYTHING.

Had my parents allowed me to be a little lazy and live off of college loans, the government or them, I do not think I would own all that I own today.
I agree and feel the same way!

I agree with that. I am college educated we have a six figure income and are Conservatives. We are not heartless and give 20 percent of our income to charity. Considering over 30 percent of our income goes to taxes we do more for our country than most Liberals do. We believe in small government and allowing citizens to make choices and live their lives. My family that are Liberals are uneducated, low income and most are lazy. Not the case for all but in my experience with people I am around. The more educated the more likely they are a Republican or Libertarian.
