Albert Einstein was pretty smart and he was a liberal as you can see from these qoutes, so why not follow him?

“The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of evil. (Albert Einstein, 1949)
Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of the smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights. (Albert Einstein, 1949)
This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism.Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career.
I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by a educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow-men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society.” (Albert Einstein, 1949)

Reagan was pretty smart and he was conservative, so why not follow him?

Think Outside the Ballot Box

I don’t blindly follow people just because they are “pretty smart.”

Pelosi's Water Boy

E=MC 2 another liberal theory like bloated Al Gores Theory of Global Warming
Neither of which has been proven by the way, still just theories

Einstein’s forte was physics and math ………….. not socio-economics.

Chibi - thulhu

iirc logical fallacy, appeal to authority

Dr. Fell

Einstein also turned down the offer to be the leader of Israel. Why? Because he wasn’t a rotten politician.

I totally do.
Albert Einstein was not just pretty smart, he was a genius! The 20th Century only produced one man as brilliant as he was. That was Albert Einstein. He was, also not only a Liberal, he was a humanist and a Socialist.

“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.” Albert Einstein
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.” Albert Einstein
Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever” Albert Einstein
“He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” Albert Einstein

He was a physicist not an economist, his understanding of economic matters were somewhat limited. In other words, outside of his field, he was no smarter than the rest of us.
