Would You Slap Your Father? If So, You're a Liberal

If you want to tell whether someone is conservative or liberal, what are a couple of completely nonpolitical questions that will give a good clue?

 

 

How's this: Would you be willing to slap your father in the face, with his permission, as part of a comedy skit?

 

 

And, second: Does it disgust you to touch the faucet in a public restroom?

 

 

Studies suggest that conservatives are more often distressed by actions that seem disrespectful of authority, such as slapping Dad. Liberals don't worry as long as Dad has given permission.

 

 

Likewise, conservatives are more likely than liberals to sense contamination or perceive disgust. People who would be disgusted to find that they had accidentally sipped from an acquaintance's drink are more likely to identify as conservatives.

 

 

The upshot is that liberals and conservatives don't just think differently, they also feel differently. This may even be a result, in part, of divergent neural responses. ..........

This must explain why most instances of HIV/AIDS are with our liberal brethren. cwm27.gif

I would think a Liberal would slap, and a conservative punch, is more like it.

 

On second thought, most Liberal's are pacifists, and wouldn't even think of doing anything violent. Sad, very sad. smile.gif

People like to label....cant get eough of it...

 

I bet if you actually walked up to some of the people that the opposing party likes to point out as a base, they would tell you they probably dont care for politics one way or another...
