The answer begins with some measurable personality traits that strongly correspond with political preferences. For instance, people more wedded to certainty tend to become conservatives; people craving novelty, liberals. Surprisingly, openness to new experiences and fastidiousness are better predictors of political preference than income or education. If you like to keep your house neat and see the world in a relatively black and white way, you're probably going to vote Republican. If you've recently moved to a big city to see what else life has to offer, you're probably going to vote Democrat. These basic differences in openness and curiosity, Mooney argues, fuel an "expertise gap" between left and right that explains much of the battle today over what is true.
Being a good liberal, Mooney also has to explore the implications of these findings for Democrats as well. Are they really wishy-washy flip-floppers? Well, sometimes. Can't they be just as dogmatic about issues close to their hearts, like autism and vaccines, or nuclear power? His research leads to some surprising conclusions.
While the evolutionary advantages of both liberal and conservative psychologies seem obvious, clashes between them in modern life have led to a crisis in our politics. A significant chunk of the electorate, it seems, will never accept the facts as they are, no matter how strong the evidence. Understanding the psychology of the left and the right, Mooney argues, should therefore fundamentally alter the way we approach the he-said-he-said of public debates.
Certain to spark discussion and debate, The Republican Brain also promises to add to the lengthy list of persuasive scientific findings that Republicans reject and deny.
See the thread I started "Tea Party is no more" where I stated similar things to this thesis you posted. Then George said it was the dumbest thing I'd ever posted.

Guess not. Although I already knew that, I and other liberals are not the ones living in fantasy land.

Treaties are the law of the land, the amendment that treaties could not contradict the constitution never passed.
If the ATT is ratified in the Senate, the 2A is as weak as Mexico's equivalent.
This treaty you're so afraid of has as much chance of passing as Obama being convicted of an impeachment charge.

You do know treaties have to win approval of 2/3 of the Senate. That means every Democrat would have to vote for it, and a number of Republicans. You really think that would happen?

Treaties can't conflict with the Constitution in any event. If this one did, no responsible Senator would vote for it. And as I understand it, it only applies to export guns not the domestic market, so it's irrelevant to you anyway. Unless you're an international gun dealer.

Reader would defend Obama to her dying breath...regardless of his actions.
The singular criticism she has levied against him has been that he failed to implement single-payer nationalized health care at the get-go. Now...she has to wait until the failure known as Obamacare collapses and single-payer is instituted, as planned all along.
