But I Don't Think Of Myself As Liberal!

And here I was today beginning to question the limits of my intelligence.  Not so fast. TL!

No, none of them were. Nor were they what you'd call "conservatives," advocating a radical change in the existing form of government and all.

Somehow I think you can reassure yourself that your not-exactly-liberalism does not indicate that you are stupider than the people of startlingly average intelligence studied here.

Anyhow, I'll give you a pass for being not-exactly-liberal if you'll give me a pass for my vague, ambivalent syncretism.

Who said anything about being a conservative?
people who identified as liberal and atheist had higher IQs.

They were signing a document stating
"...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

Maybe they were confused then.

Ah. Well, being misunderstood is a risk you run when you value brevity over clarity, or precision.

My thoughts on assigning religiosity to the Founders are already on record.

Why use 2 words when you can use 15!
