It’s true! The next time you meet an (American) free thinker ask them some questions. Chances are:
- They support Democrats, gun control, LGBT rights, elective abortion access, the science on climate change, stem cell research, and single payer healthcare.
- They do not support the Republican party, a tax exempt status for organized religion, home schooling, or increased military funding.
Of course, there are always exceptions. But the exceptions don’t disprove the general rule. And the general rule is that calling oneself a “free thinker” is generally indicative of a surprising degree of intellectual conformity.
