"Ideology by Numbers"

Check this site out, it has an article that's pretty fascinating. It's funny, b/c most liberals I know fall into these categories. It's amazing how 'ideas' DO have consequences, and how our moral compass has declined so much in this country and we wonder 'what's happend'. This is just an excerpt of the article. :

Hoover Institution at Stanford University, packs into 212 eye-opening pages:
Seventy-one percent of conservatives say you have an obligation to care for a seriously injured spouse or parent, versus 46 percent of liberals.

Liberals are 2 1/2 times more likely to be resentful of others’ success and 50 percent more likely to be jealous of other people’s good luck. (sounds like someone I know...and they're liberal)

Fifty-five percent of conservatives get satisfaction from putting someone else’s happiness ahead of their own, nearly three times the number of liberals: just 20 percent.

Young conservatives are more likely to volunteer for a charity, any kind of charity, than young liberals — although young liberals are more likely to say they have attended a protest rally.

Fifty-nine percent of those who describe themselves as “very liberal” think it’s wrong to cheat on your spouse, compared to 86 percent of those who self-identify as “very conservative.”
