Differences in Conservative and Liberal Brains
16 peer-reviewed studies show liberals and conservatives physiologically differences.

----------
The poor fearful conservatives.

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/ulterior-...

"...In these analyses, children with parents who were more authoritarian grow up with more conservative political views.
. Children who had difficulty focusing their attention on playing were more conservative than those who had less difficulty focusing attention.
Finally, children who were more fearful were more likely to express conservative views than children who were less fearful..."

"Study: Are Liberals Smarter Than Conservatives?

…A libertarian (and, as such, nonpartisan) researcher, Satoshi Kanazawa of the London School of Economics and Political Science, has just written a paper that is set to be published in March by the journal Social Psychology Quarterly. The paper investigates not only whether conservatives are dumber than liberals but also why that might be so….

The short answer: Kanazawa's paper shows that more-intelligent people are more likely to say they are liberal.
...He argues that smarter people are more willing to espouse "evolutionarily novel" values…"

By all rights shouldn't you complain about bill gates, Warren buffet, most of the movie stars, and all the other ultra rich folks who spread their wealth around in efforts to support democrats and undermine conservatives?

I mean you know in the interest of equality and all that good stuff.

Oh and I'll decide how I think and feel thank you very much.

The thread "Truth?" in the Charleston Topix goes to the heart of the propaganda.

Definition of a Conservative now days - 1950s social beast, one percenter or dumb as dirt? Y E S !!! Your choice.

As a student of Freud, I would speculate by non-controlled analyst that you are none of the above. My unscientific theory would perceive by your opinions and comments that you exhibit mild psychological underlays of Paranoia possibly with very mild bouts of Schizophrenia. I would also theorize that you suffer from a gender identification. I would also say that when you fail to administer the required dose of anti-depressant medication, you tend to transfer you slight scudded thoughts to the internet, being that you have problems communicating with so called normal persons face to face. I can assure you that you can live in a civilized society with other people if you take your medication and recognize that a problem exists and you can handle said problem. Study is finished, no charge.

I see from the first link there is a thing about lack of eye contact and conservatives. I also think I have seen a lack of empathy from conservatives. Do I remember that autistic kids lack eye contact and empathy. Now I'm not saying conservatives are autistic - heck they could even be a one percenter. LOL

Yes silly conservatives. How dare they attempt to hold onto what made this country great in the first place. How dare they accept their traditional culture and heritage. And we all know most of them are white males, and white males are evil right? They want to stop you from having abortions and make you carry your rape babies to full term. We are all so cool parroting what we hear on the liberal media. We can't be bothered to think for ourselves, of course. If we did we might find that the left vs right is all a big show, distracting you from the real issues. And believe me, there are many real issues in this country. We are all getting screwed, whether you are with the crazy party (democrat) or the stupid party (republican), you are still getting screwed. We all are. Republicans are not your enemy, they are mostly just blue collar working families with slightly different views from your own. If you didn't hear about how terrible they were on TV every 5 seconds you probably wouldn't really give a shit. Pull your heads out of your stupid asses.

Always trying to go back to 'The Good Ole Days'. Never realize the ole days will never come again.

"...Finally, children who were more fearful were more likely to express conservative views than children who were less fearful..."

No Fear Boys, No Fear - it will be OK.

PS - Remember when Bushie Boys had everyone buy duct tape and plastic after the terrorism? There was my 100 year old grandma trying to plastic over her house in West Virginia worried about the 'threat' as I drove up. No Fear Boys - No Fear.

Obviously you are too dumb and/or crazy to catch my drift, so I might as well spell it out for you.

If you had you would have noticed this
"We are all getting screwed, whether you are with the crazy party (democrat) or the stupid party (republican), you are still getting screwed."

Meaning that I am obviously not a conservative, and I am unsure why you think that childish insults directed at them would offend me.

I guess that is the thought process of your typical basement dwelling liberal. When in doubt, repeat a bunch of generic democratic slogans and insults. If that doesn't work try an ad hominem attack or two. Douche.
