Actually, I'm a socialist, not straight out communist. More regulation and government control of critical departments and all that. But, always found it interesting, who was more liberal at my private school. People who arn't neccesarily good in most of their classes were more inclined to be republican/capitolists. so too were sports nuts and INCREDIBLY socially awkward people. But the theater kids, the A-students, the real scholars, and the nerds (my closest affiliated sector) all leaned more left, some farther than me. It's one of the things I love about online nerd communities and even deviantart; liberal, and ready to accept new ideas, people, and conversations. This is as opposed to people at my school who compare me to "Stalin" or a ("insert explative here) Red", because I supported Obama's re-election... and did not vote rich old white guy.
