Surprise: Conservatives Happier Than Liberals According To Study

This comes to us via one of my favorite liberals, Alan Colmes

A study by the American Psychological Association shows that conservatives are happier individuals than liberals, but liberal countries have more satisfied citizens.

“Liberal governments tend to do more to shield citizens against certain hardships, such as unemployment and poverty, which can make people feel happier overall,” Dr. Adam Okulicz-Kozaryn, a psychologist at Rutgers University and the study’s lead author, said in a written statement. “On the other hand, conservatives rate their well-being higher than liberals because conservatives more readily support and rationalize the status quo, thus, believing that socioeconomic hardships are a result of individual shortcomings.

Of course, one problem with the study is that these are European liberals and conservatives, and, particularly for EU conservatives, there is a vast difference between them and US conservatives.

Regardless, our takeaway is that liberals are only satisfied when Big Daddy Government is there to take care of them.

    Well, sure. Conservatives have so little to occupy their minds. What did Rush say today? What time does Duck Dynasty come on?
