from Godfather Politics by Gary DeMar
There’s an article going around that suggests that liberals have greater brain power than conservatives. These types of studies have been published for quite some time. The latest study suggests that conservative opinions are the result of less brain power, less thinking about a subject. Here’s one of the conclusions that’s come out from the study.
“The bad news for liberals is we’re saying that conservatism has a certain psychological advantage,” University of Arkansas psychologist Scott Eidelman said. “The bad news for conservatives is that someone who has a knee-jerk conservative reaction may change their mind about an issue after giving it more thought.”
Maybe it is true. Let’s put the hypothesis to the test.
If you spend more money than you earn, you will be in debt. That didn’t take much brain power, therefore, I must be a conservative. Liberals will use a lot of brain power to argue that deficits don’t matter, and all you have to do to get more money to take care of a deficit is to print more pieces of paper or enter a few more zeros into a computer. As a conservative, I wish I had thought of that.
Since I’m obviously less intelligent than a free-spending, counterfeiting liberal, please explain to me why the fiscal mess our nation and the rest of the world is in is a good thing? Why are the people in Greece rioting? I guess it takes being a liberal to know.
