    There is not a clear line berween lib and conservative. It can be drawn as a square, or better as a cube. Depending on the survey bias I am a moderate, slightly right. If feelings are given weight I end up slightly left. Reality included pushes me a bit more right.

    As I have said, voting is figuring who to vote against, not for.

    @PistolPete - yes, I saw this video earlier on today.

    AOC earns a good wage and didn't even think to help her abuela out.

    Along come some conservative pundits and raise $100K for AOC's grandmama - hilarious!

    Brock Talon: I didn't say conservatives are assholes. I said some conservatives are assholes. There are many good conservatives. I don't understand why so many people insist on making opinions an all or nothing issue. And, your polls regarding what they contribute and how much is very much subject to what they contribute to. I didn't see any indication that they contribute more to causes supporting the poor or disenfranchised. I do have some indication that they would be more religiously conservative and would contribute to anti-abortion causes than most liberals, even though the god of the OT Bible doesn't shit about children, let alone fetuses.

    Page 2 of the above paper gets to the core of the issue - happiness.

    Conservative ideology - Preserve tradition. Hard work = Success. An individual is responsible for his own outcome.

    Liberal ideology - Progress must always happen. One's outcome is influenced by external factors controlled by society as a whole. Inequality is society's failing.

    What is true is that happiness is found internally. No person, place, experience, or thing can make you happy.

    Update:

    AOC has rejected the $100,000 raised by the Go Fund Me account.

    Well done AOC, I guess all those conservative dollars are bigoted and racist.

    I heard that. Some are saying the Grandma Never had a problem to begin with. She is fine and living in a nice house, better than the average citizen.

    AOC just wanted to blame Trump for something.

    Being a Liberal requires cognitive disability of some kind, usually several kinds.
