    If I had to guess I'd say 15% have serious doubts, and the rest are being intellectually dishonest when they claim to have doubts. No one does cognitive dissonance quite like the Right.

    Pretty much, but some conspiracies are real, obviously. I know a lot of black people who believe some really bizarre conspiracy theories about the federal government, but I don't blame black people for being suspicious of it, do you?

    Except for the Left. Try explaining Econ 101 to a real hard-lefter sometimes.

    I'd say the far-right is worse on economic matters, on average.

    Most people who study the economy are on the Left.

    I'd say you were 100% wrong on both counts, unless you consider an American Democrat to be the Left.

    I'm not saying the Right has a monopoly on it, but they probably control a good 65% of the market.

    Yes, American Democrats are usually left-of-center.

    Interesting statistic you have there, care to provide a source?

    Of course bullshit exists on both the Left and the Right, you just seem eager to stack the deck.

    It's on both sides, and I know people often want to call it a wash and say it's 50/50, but in reality, things are very rarely evenly split.

    To be fair, the Bullshit Quotient is probably around 65%/35% Right/Left.
