More proof a right wing authoritarian mindset is a mental issue

I always thought conservatives seemed less able to deal with facts that conflicted with their simplistic understanding of the world. Put this study together with the study that shows those with lower cognition abilities as children tend to become racist adults and gravitate towards right wing mind set, and you have a picture of people with lower IQs who adopt conservative philosophies and have smaller ability to understand the complexities of our world. Interesting, yes?
A different breed of human? Definitely.

  • LOL.. anything that makes you near-retards feel better.

    I must admit, I was a, gulp, liberal too until my late 30s, when I realized the real world had nothing to do with my adolescent fantasies.

    I hope you will all come around as well one day. But first you need to take on real responsibilities.

      LOL.. it is not that I am too keen on the Republicans either, but conservatism is what made America strong -- Liberalism is what has destroyed it.

      Only leeches on the system would argue that.

    • @gorgonzatropolis I'm exactly with you brother.. Half the republicans are just as lost. True conservatism and constitutional preservation is the only antidote to this poison

  • ~why is it that these stupid leftists feel they need to slander conservatism at every turn? May it be because ALL their policies are EPIC FAIL and are the roots of TRUE fascism and oppression? I.E., the TSA, the EPA, obunghole's czars' restrictions and regulations against freedom and free markets?etc., etc., etc.?

  • 90 people doesn't mean squat. Second liberals are the ones driven by emotions. Third how do you explain people that change from Liberal to Conservative and vice versa???


    BTW Conservatives do have bigger penises.

  • The need to say that one side is smarter than the other reveals a glaring feeling of insecurity on the side saying it- betraying their own perceived stupidity. Those who still think the world, or people, or anything, only exists in two dimensions are not as smart as they could be.

  • Amazing. Science does not even know how genetic diseases are triggered or what exactly causes emotions in the brain, but put some pseudo-science article on the internet and some "disturbed" individuals hang onto it like a life preserver.

  • That must be why the democrats for years were the hate group. Burning crosses in yards was done by democrats not GOP. The liberal are hell bent on spending this nation into poverty were we will all have nothing. We are along way down this road with little chance to stop. We are in trouble when the few realize that they can vote people into office. With the promise of free things for nothing except a vote.
