    Taylor, please give us your definition of "regular people." When you're done with that, please explain how you "know that they [liberals] don't like america as much as regular people." Finally, please identify the scientific apparatus used to verifiably rank how much someone loves their country.

    Thanks.

    It took me all of 1 minute to refute your so-called "solid reason":

    The trend persists when libs are in power, out of power, several years in, several years out... frustration over party politics seems to have little to do with happiness:

    (see page 13)
    It also shows that when democrats have power, the gap is almost negligible. This proved out during Carter's presidency, and Clinton's to a lesser extent(During Carter's presidency, the poll is within the margin of error). Hmm, sounds kinda like what I have been saying...

    Of course not... I think they are all nuts, but by your post there is no possible way to have proof of anything.

    You either take the word of experts when you yourself are not an expert, or if you don't, all you have left is your own opinion... and as we have all seen, opinions and $5 will get you a cup of coffee.

    Then it becomes theory, not fact. Considering that happiness is a subjective term, it would impossible to factually say that Conservatives are more happy.

    That's an error in comprehension, as I've already explained ad naseum.

    It seems to me the main premise presented is that Conservatives tend to be better at rationalizing, as exemplified by Jost's research in what he calls "System justifications theory"

    So do conservatives tend to be happier, or just tend to be more able to rationalize and justify that they are happy?

    You haven't explained a single thing. All I've seen from you thus far is dodging legitimate questions.

    So what you are saying is that all of the time conservatives are as happy or happier than liberals, and most of the time conservatives are happier.

    I think I'm happy, therefore I am.
