Looking through some polls: generally Republicans are afraid of science, don't adjust world view when presented with facts. Democrats want to protect everyone from everything and are willing to pass more and more laws to do it.
Utter nonsense. When one fails to accept various scientific theories, it doesn't follow that he is afraid of science.
Sound like talking points of a liberal. You should say democrats have no concept of debt and desire to spend other people's money, not their own. Republicans coward to democrat because they don't want to be seen as shutting down government.
It's not the democrats fault that republicans are coward. Grow a pair.
Mostly agree. Both majorities are selective in what they like and don't like though.
Yes...but due to the 'Dunning-Krueger' effect, many people aren't aware of their fact resistance.
Off to look that up 🤓
Upon further reflection it makes me even more worried about what type of people seek public office 🤔
Is that anything like cognitive dissonance with hints of agoraphobia, or other such anxiety disorders? I feel that traditionalism and religious indoctrination at early ages both play a major role in the phenomena..
Ummm. Not what I researched......
No....you can summarize it by saying 'stupid people don't realize they are stupid.'
Got it- looked it up, and it makes sense, although cognitive dissonance and aroraphobic/anxiety disorder-like behaviors are certainly characteristics common in GOP supporters. I did like the inverse part of the theory
Effect (not theory, sorry), about smart people thinking a task simple to them would be simple to everyone, or that they're dumb themselves. It's like a perfectionist/ high self standard kinda thing. I've known a few people who
We're too dumb to know they were dumb. It's quite sad actually.
Sad but true
Sounds about right.
I can't tell if you are serious or trolling liberals.
I don't troll. I regret that you perceived it that way
I was talking to Ron. I took your question seriously. I don't think there's anything wrong with stating what you believe are some commonly held characteristics of the major parties.
I thought perhaps Ron was poking fun at liberals because saying "stereotyping" can be seen as a stereotypically liberal reaction or overreaction.
You can't just put libs or cons in a box. Many of my democratic friends are very conservative. ex, the NY Irish are strong democrats, strong church and family ties , Union workers who hunt, fish, love guns, church and beer are conservative. True on the other side as well.
I do not equate fear with skepticism on the republican side, but these generalizations seem fairly accurate.
With which part?
