    I got two years of college, but no degree. I didn't have enough self-discipline.......that and I had much more fun on the rodeo team than I did in class.

    I've always had the idea of going back to college and getting my Master's, but since I work for myself it really wouldn't affect my pay or employment status.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I graduated college with a 2 year degree. Of course I was 50 when I finally did it. Does 24 years in the military and School of Hard Knocks count? If so I guess I have 2 degrees!!

    I've got some college credits since being in the military, but haven't actually attended any colleges. Still haven't decided what I'll do about that....

    Master's in Biology....then spent the next 41 years in the aerospace industry. Maked no sense, but one has to feed the family.

    I went to trade-school (3 years) and an apprenticeship program several years after the Marine Corps, which I joined after my senior year in high school. I lacked a half credit for graduating surprisingly at the time (1982) and I received my Kansas GED a year after I got out of the service as my mother insisted.

    I hope it's not prejudicial or stereotypical in any way. I felt it an innocent enough question to answer the poll. If I'd have thought otherwise, I wouldn't have.

    Was making more money in the family business at the age of 10 than my teachers teaching me in middle school. So my father said to my brother(s) and myself. You can go to college and to what ever you want or your butt comes to work. My brothers and I chose work. Something it seems like the wrong deceision.

    Good question.

    I answered but the results so far are not representative of the census numbers that indicate only 29% of society have college degrees. Here, we have over 60%. And the largest percentages of college graduates are located in the typical liberal, anti gun areas: Seattle, San Francisco...Something is not right.

    This poll has no value whatsoever.

    there isn't anything prejudicial here at all, just curiousity!

    Education = Liberalism? Are you saying that conservatives are not educated?
    wow, thanks, just because your numbers don't add up and you think this poll is skewed and you deem it valueless?
