"Hmm, I dunno, B-Money - at the state school in Ohio I attended (sorry, not OSU!), the conservative viewpoint was alive and well amongst staff and students. I expect any leftward leaning on campus is due to the rightward shift of everything else. You can appear 'leftist' today just by standing pat these past 7 years."


Well it is good that there was a two way street at your school. The university I coach a mock trial program at is very leftist. I hide my politics there so I can continue to do what I enjoy. I have had dicussions with my students and a few are middling to conservative but feel they must hide this in order to maintain friendships and to succeed in class.

When I was in school in the 90's there was a pretty open air and sharing of ideas was encouraged. Now, because of Bush and his neo-con followers, there in now a lot of animosity from the left towards the right, and vice versa, and that kills that open sharing of ideas. Any inkling of conservatism and a person is accussed of being a Bushite war monger nativist who wants to start a New World Order.

But I guess that is what happens when an incompetant runs the country for 7 years.

Once stung, twice shy.

Sadly, I think you're right B-Money. I'm old enough to remember the Vietnam era, and while there was bitterness in the air then, it was nothing like the pestilential miasma that's choking us now.
