This article is based purely on my own observations of the liberal mindset versus the conservative mindset. It is not based in any way on scientific evidence and should be considered more for enjoyment purposes only. If you resemble any of the characters in this story it is purely coincidental. JD
I have been on this planet all of a half a century now, and I have seen an amazing divergence in the behavior of the people around me. Friends, close friends, co-workers, people you come into contact from time to time, they all have their own individual way of seeing and perceiving what goes on around them. Here is my own observations of the psychology of the liberal and the conservative.
The liberal is always looking to place blame on others for all that goes wrong in life. He gets a flat tire, and somehow, in some way it was someone else’s fault.
The conservative gets a flat and he calls AAA.
The liberal tends to think that he can change the way others think about a particular issue by calling them names and insinuating that they are stupid.
The conservative understands fully that people are people, most a product of their environment, and if they grow up with the people of authority, parents and teachers that are liberal, they is no way of changing their mind.
The liberal seems to believe that everyone should be equal in life. We should all make the same amount of money, get the same health care, the same ability to purchase etc.
This is not true though for the wealthy liberal of which there are many. Contrary to what the media says, there are as many wealthy liberals in America as there are conservatives.
The conservative understands that people are people and we all make our own way in life. If a man chooses to be a carpenter, the conservative see that as an honorable profession and hopes the carpenter does well in life.
The liberal sees a carpenter as a menial back breaking job and believes that the carpenter is underpaid and overworked and has been cheated in life.
The conservative can talk about political events of the day and tends to ask questions about an issue or conflict and then making an informed opinion and sticks to that opinion even if it may side more with the liberal point of view.
The liberal struggles to remember what they said about that particular issue on CNN last night. After all, liberals tend to just drink the media Kool-Aide and parrot whatever they heard the night before on the nightly news.
The conservative learns of something in the news that makes him angry and he writes his congressman hoping to gain some influence in Washington.
The liberal goes out and “organizes protests” which today has become code words for “lets go loot, destroy other peoples property and burn down the neighborhood.”
The irony here is liberals call conservatives “angry white men.”
The conservative understands that the logging industry is a necessary industry to ensure that Americans have building material to build homes to live in and buildings to work in.
The liberal sees the logging industry as “evil” and goes out and chains themselves to trees or even worse, hammers railroad spikes into the trees (which eventually kills the trees anyway) in the hope that the logger will hit the spike with his chainsaw thus breaking the chain so the logger gets killed.
The conservative tends to hate abortion. Sometimes to the point of bombing clinics and killing doctors. In fact its the one thing about the republican party that confounds me. In fact, at times it makes the party look almost as foolish as the democrat party. Sorry, just being intellectually honest about it.
Liberals on the other hand, think that hospitals should have an assembly line approach to abortion whereas they can do a million a day.
The conservative complains about how much a gallon of gasoline costs, but understands that oil is the lubricant of America.
The liberal wants a world where we all ride bicycles to work and when an oil rig explodes, they have parties.
The conservative knows that hard work in school and life equals an even chance at a good life.
The liberal believes that it is incumbent of the government to provide them with the ability to live. They believe to the core of their being that their own failure in life is the fault of wealthy conservatives and their intention is to “get even” with them by electing liberal politicians.
What these same liberals don’t understand is those same liberal politicians do all that they can to keep the liberal voter in the ghetto.
That’s because its the poor liberal that is nothing more than a modern day slave to the democrat party. Slave in the sense that the more of these poor liberals that the democrats can keep in the ghetto, the longer they can remain in office. Its a perpetuating cycle too complex for the average slave . . . er . . . liberal to understand.
To me that what makes the whole political situation in America so ironical in the first place. On the one hand you have slaves to the democrat machine. On the other you have people that are saying carry your own weight. Hard work pays off every time. Its tried and true. JD
