    Incorrect. Conservatives say they are "happy." There is no such thing as a "happiness meter" that can accurately gauge the relative ranking of various individuals' emotions.

    But you knew that already, right?

    Just a guess, but I suppose it is important to Taylor that conservatives are happier, because she self identifies as a conservative.

    The fact is that there have been many studies showing that conservatives are happier. One need only a web browser and an inkling of intellectual curiosity to get into the debate. Kudos to Glinda, we may disagree, but at least she debates ISSUES.


    And your conclusion that conservatives give money to charity because they are empathetic is YOUR OPINION. Here...my opinion is that conservatives give more money to charities because they want tax breaks.
    Like I said, we can discuss in another thread. You'd be wrong because the trend is not income-dependent.

    School rankings are pretty irrelevant when we are talking about research. Good research can come from anywhere. They key is good, valid methodology.

    I can see why you would need to do that on this forum.

    What sort of verifiable scientific measurements were used in these studies? A "happiness meter?"

    Yes I did.. now if you could please explain that concept as it applies to facts vs. opinions to the rest of the folks, I'd much appreciate it.

    If there were many studies I would think you would post some. So far, the "studies" that you have posted have not proven your opinion. You know the difference between causation and correlation? Correlation does not prove your position. Further, Glinda is correct. Happiness is completely subjective and not measurable.



    Like I said, we can discuss in another thread. You'd be wrong because the trend is not income-dependent.
    Wasn't my position. It was an example of an unsubstantiated opinion, similar to what you have been presenting. See how easy that was?
