Here is a link to some recent research I found amusing if nothing else.  Although no substitute for joy, it seems like the path to happiness is being older & conservative. I’ve always known that liberals tend to be angry, unhappy people and we now have  research to back it up.

It makes some sense when you think about it. In spite of your worldview and values being constantly attacked by progressives, older conservatives tend to rest in absolutes, truth, and are old enough to be secure in what has or hasn’t worked in their own lives.

To be young and liberal is to be angry. Sad, really. Kids these days… 🙂

  1. Older people tend to be wiser as well. Have you seen many people go from conservative from liberal as they get older? I don't know anyone personally. I have seen numerous people go from liberal to conservative though.

  2. I've noticed women tend to go more liberal and men go more conservative with age.

  3. Well, it's certainly true of my parents and that of several of my friends.

    I also recall reading that marriage seems to extend the lifetimes of men far better than for women.

    On a related note, I'm trying to dig up some factoids from psych research about conservative vs. liberal leanings and how they correlate with inherent personality traits (contra the Mike Adams link about the nature of conservatism). The message is that we generally think that we're much more rational than we actually are and don't notice that there are other influences that affect our outlook. Here's a link (but it's not exactly the one I have in mind).

  4. Well, you know what they say: If you're not liberal when you're young, you don't have a heart. If you're not conservative when you're old, you don't have a brain.
