I always sensed this was more than just my imagination. Republican paranoia is real. Perhaps if they sought some professional help...
A body of [....huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/20/republican-democrat-brain-politics-fmri-study_n_2717731 . html]scientific evidence has shown that the actual brain structures and brain functions in conservatives are different from those in liberals. Conservative brains are much more inclined to perceive threats, aggression, and fear. As a result, when presented with the exact same external circumstance, the conservative brain is much more likely than the liberal brain to perceive a threat, and thus respond accordingly.
They tend to be conspiracy theorists, too.
They're mean because they don't trust anyone.
funny that, I was thinking ya left out "and 'God' is on their side" but I see it's been filled in.
Reminds me of a song
Thanks. I hadn't heard it before. Great. Here are the lyrics
Listen children to a story that was written long ago
'bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below
on the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
and the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own
CHORUS: go ahead and hate your neighbor
go ahead and cheat a friend
do it in the name of heaven
justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
come the judgment day
on the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away
So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill,
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom "with our brothers we will share.
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there."
Now the valley cried with anger,"mount your horses, draw your swords"
And they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure, on the mountain dark and red.
Turned the stone and looked beneath it; PEACE ON EARTH was all it said.
