Its no wonder that conservatives don't trust the research coming out of academia on many other issues, such as global warming, psychology/psychiatry, etc. They have come to expect this kind of behavior from a system that "peer reviews" itself when its members are not representative of the general public's viewpoint. Over 75% of academia self-identifies as liberal.

How quickly we forget 9/11. If our government had been more vigilant in who crosses our border, it would have never happened. Border searches are one of the few powers I am happy to grant my overgrown, bloated, ineffective federal government. If you come to the U.S. with bad intentions, I hope they catch you.

I'm Republican. I have read slashdot since its inception. I'm in my late 40's, I'm a CIO, highly paid, highly educated (J.D; degree), and I almost never post on Slashdot. I think this is my third time. I find most of the commentary in the posts to be of "talk radio" quality, and both the selection of articles and their summaries tend to have a left slant. Therefore, I don't feel a part of the community. But I read it because it's an easy way of keeping track of technical news. My guess is there are a lot of others like me.
