So I wouldn't say that conservatives tend to be "left-brained," because in truth they're not logical or even rationalizing - being too thoughtful or considerate would make them aware of the immorality of their ill-intentions toward others, so they prefer the purity of violence and power to the self-reflection of consciousness.
    Yeah, that's it. Liberals are made of sugar and spice and all that's nice. Us conservatives are made of frogs and snails and puppy-dogs' tails. You sure showed me.

    Conservatives are not anti social, but the way they socialize is scary. Ever see Karl Rove dance?

    A lot of conservatives just aren't genuinely good or nice people. They are very xenophobic, aggressive, overly concerned with the protection of their "culture", paranoid about terrorist and Muslim takeovers, very hate filled, racist, I mean, have you ever watched O'rielly or Hannity? Those are the two most unpleasant men on the planet.

    I watched O'Reilly for a few years and while he can be a loud overbearing ass he isn't one of the most unpleasant men on the planet. I think you just met the wrong conservatives if you think this.

    You apparently haven't met very man conservatives. You base this opinion off of television?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I kind of thought Maddow and Olberman were two of the more unpleasant men on the planet. Shrug.

    Never mind discussing the science behind this... Let's just make partisan accusations!

    QED. You can pout and act like what I said is unfair, but I think we both know it isn't. I'm not saying any given conservative is necessarily a bad person, but conservatism is an ideology that arises from morally, emotionally, and intellectually crippled minds who would rather blame the people they step on than do something constructive.
