Where they are most likely to live Edit
Hillbillies who use Conservapedia will most likely dwell in southern region of the United States. A more specific location of a high concentration of hillbillies is West Virginia and many of them live in the Bible Belt.
The term Hillbilly is used to refer to those with ancestors from Ireland who were allied with the British King William (Billy) had the most support during the contest for the throne against his uncle James II (who was allied with the tyrant Louis XIV of France). Many of these people settled in the Appalachian mountain range - the hills - and were known as "Billy-boys of the hills" and then as "hillbillies". These people were generally considered buffoons for supporting the LIBERAL King. It is quite interesting how the usage has changed.
Because of a simple country lifestyle and lower educational standards, they became despised by cityfolk and stereotyped. The term began to be applied to people with a certain attitude and political stance - the type of person who would perhaps build a nuclear (pronounced "nuk-you-lerr") shelter in their back yard. Ironically, the original hillbillies were rugged frontiersmen who were fiercely liberal, strongly for the idea of religious freedom, and who wrought the US Constitution.
Political Affiliation Edit
This is not a very diverse bunch. They all nearly all vote for the Republican candidate, and therefore serve the purpose of the ignorant vote in elections. While they have right to vote (regrettably), it would be nice if this dull bunch would think before they vote. It would help the intelligent people a lot. Or they can save themselves the pain of attempting to use their withered brain cells (withered because excess of alcohol and lack of many in the first place (genetics), and not vote at all! That would be beneficial for everybody!
