10. That's a really good observation.
It just makes this basic instinct that we, perhaps, have and making it that much more effective because it's coming from people they look up to. And I really think that there is something in the conservative mind that makes them believe that these people really must be better than they are because they are more "successful". That's a subject for another post, but I think it makes the pressure to accept what they are being told by this people even greater. You don't want to argue with someone smarter than you -- you'll end up looking silly! I think that's also something that they fear.
