I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Apple's most hardcore fans trend towards having the 'religion' gene.
I'm not sure if I have either gene though, that'd be illuminating.
I probably have the liberal gene.
...this post brought to you by the United States government, "working hard to solve yesterday's problems as we strive to create the crises for a new tomorrow."
Liberals provide a people of one set of specific values. Conservatives provide a people of a different set of specific values. Speaking on a grand scale, both sets of values are required to ensure the survival of the human race.
In different environmental settings, one or both of those values will cause the humans who have them to better survive. In some environments, liberal values will cause the flourishing of humanity. In other environments, conservatives values will cause the flourishing of humanity. In some environments, both sets of values will cause the flourishing of humanity. In some environments, neither set of values will cause the flourishing of humanity.
After all, take sociopaths. I read an article that once stated that the scientific purpose behind sociopaths was specifically so that there would be some types of humans who would put their own survival above all others as a natural safeguard to the continuation of the human race. So I definitely think that genetics can influence human behavior, and therefore influence a person's politics. However, I don't think a specific value judgment can be applied to genetic politics. Every set has their own evolutionary purpose.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
Of course there is no such thing....
However ,what could be genetic is compassion for others, this generally would be more liberal than libertarian....IMO...
It's a fact that they are more charitable.
Just because they are against high taxes and big entitlements doesn't mean they don't care. They want everyone to have the same opportunties to succeed and non stop handouts only prevent people from succeeding in life. Hand ups, not hand outs.
Hand outs tend to keep people down. That is not compassionate.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Counting up all the days, hours, and minutes, behavior conditioning goes through, it's no wonder that the result is so complex.
Hillary Clinton used to be a Goldwater Girl when she was in college. I guess the gene thing has been debunked now.
HELPING HILLARY PICK OUT HER INAUGURAL GOWN!The jokes write themselves!
The science might not be skeezy in the strictest sense of the word, but people have a hard time contextualizing scientific observations, and the media doesn't help.Nothing skeezy about it, the methodology would be simple enough to find a simple correlation.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
