Conservatives are happier than liberals…

Goerge Will documents again how conservatives (read Republicans) are happier than liberals.

Will is using a study by the Pew Research Center which is by no means a conservative think tank to make his point.

A survey by the Pew Research Center shows that conservatives are happier than liberals — in all income groups. While 34 percent of all Americans call themselves "very happy,” only 28 percent of liberal Democrats (and 31 percent of moderate or conservative Democrats) do, compared to 47 percent of conservative Republicans. This finding is niftily self-reinforcing: It depresses liberals.

Basically poor conservatives are happier than poor liberals, rich conservatives are happier than rich liberals (note, George Soros is a screaming maniac).  Conservative religious people are happier than liberal religious people etc.

The study really comes down to people that think that they can control and/or change their own circumstances in life are much happier.

This study repeats what many other studies have shown.  So all my liberal readers, consider lightening up a little bit and become a conservative for the sake of your own happiness and ours.

I suppose my liberal readers will say conservatives are too stupid to be unhappy.  Good luck with that line of argement.  Remember when I think it was the New York Times published an article that conservatives were poor stupid people, they were innundated with faxes and emails from conservatives with their Ph.D.s and their tax statments showing both their brains and their earning power.

Dude just give up and become a conservative!!!

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

  1. Democrats are upset because the number of Conservatives is growing by leaps and bounds. Why and how? Because we don’t believe in abortion and are having children at a much larger rate than liberal/Democrats. So as the years go by and the children grow up, assuming they vote like their parents, Conservatives will RULE! heh
