Individuals with conservative ideologies are happier than liberal-leaners, and new research pinpoints the reason: Conservatives rationalize social and economic inequalities.

The results support and further explain a Pew Research Center survey from 2006, in which 47 percent of conservative Republicans in the U.S. described themselves as "very happy," while only 28 percent of liberal Democrats indicated such cheer.

I wonder at those types of stories because, of course, data can be skewed.

If someone asked me if I was happy with my over-all life, I would say I truly was. If someone asked me if I was happy with today's political climate I would say I wasnt. I think all of politics is a sick joke. We vote for the lesser of evils, we listen to lies. It is a sad state of affairs.

I guess voting for the lesser of two evils is better that voting for more evil! As far as these surveys, they have been asking about overall life. I guess liberals concentrate more on politics.

Conservatives also has been found are more likely to give to charity than liberals. Liberals tend to think everything needs a government solution. Leads to bigger government and more control over our lives, and our money.

Can't wait for the windfall profits tax on the gasoline companies to lower gas prices. :-P
