In several states, Texas in particular, tea partiers are trying to get their state colleges and universities to focus more on vocational training--especially in STEM (science, math, engineering, technology), and less on humanities, social sciences, and general education.

Do they think the scientifically trained will remain or become religious and conservative? The great majority of scientists and mathematicians are liberal and secular. A majority of engineers and technologists are, too, especially socially liberal.

Perhaps they sow the seeds of their own destruction.
