It Could Be That The Borderer Presbyterian Tradition Of "stand Up And Say Your Rightful Piece" Contributed To The American Notion That Our Gut-level But Uninformed Opinions Are Some Sort Of Unvarnished Foundational Political Truths. I Have Been Told That This Is Because We Redneck Working-class Scots Irish Suffer From What Psychiatrists Call "no Insight".Consequently, We Will Never Agree With Anyone Outside Our Zone Of Ignorance Because Our Belligerent Borderer Pride Insists On The Right To Be Dangerously Wrong About Everything While Telling Those Who Are More Educated To "bite My Ass!]
