    Should we just install Purell dispensers at polling locations?
    I had my suspicions ....

    Hippocampus.

    Big one = scared stiff of anything new and prone to believing one line fear slogans.
    Small one = open to new ideas and capable of complex thought.

    about half the population have big ones, and the other half small. So about half the population is conservative, and the other - not.

    What would breeders do?
    I don't care to know what the tough do when the going gets tough.

    I am interested in what the enlightened do.

    So all of those people who used the fear of unbearable medical costs to sell the ACA were conservative. And they turned liberals into conservatives.

    All the people who have fear of college debt are using that fear to turn liberals into conservatives.
    Life is complex.

    It's hardly news. It's been well documented for a long time now that conservatives are more, even much more, "cautious" than liberals. But before we go spraying them all with Purell hand sanitizer in order to eliminate the small minded frightened little dears I think t's important to remember that it takes both kinds.

    I posted once before that if humans were all conservatives we'd still live in caves, but if we were all liberals we'd all be dead.

    Liberals have been preaching for a hundred years, they've yet to achieve anything worth putting on rye toast.

    Aw, cmon Delecta. It must have been a liberal who discovered how to make butter, the conservatives would have been too afraid of angering the gods to give the cream the shaking it needed.

    Itís a common conservative trope to tap into our deepest fears by calling immigrants germs and bacteria, and referring to our country as a body............, from the artical.

    Please cite who said that.....

    If its so...... common..... you should be able to cite a few.

    not to mention "Trump with the nuclear codes" he's "Un-Hinged"

    then the real SCARE TACTIC "Global Warming" (dangerous enough to get your vote but not dangerous enough to have wind mills clutter the view of Vineyard Sound from the Kennedy Compound)

    seriously this stuff is so juvenile it should be insulting to Liberals intelligence... but it plays right into their wheel house and they lap it up!
