gross blanketed statements on political stance's

i understand these are broad, and not 100% correct all the time; thus stereotypes. i would love to do a psycological examination of behaviors and morals between conservatives and liberals. these are a few that i have observed but can not prove.
THIS IS NOT (I REPEAT NOT) MEANT TO BE MEAN OR MALICIOUS, I AM SIMPLY COLLECTING A STEREOTYPE OF PEOPLE I HAVE MET THROUGH THE YEARS AND LUMPING THEM TOGETHER. if you think of any 'more likely to's' please make your own list.

I think that you're very accurate on most of them.

I'd say that the opposite is true for "RATHER SPEND THE NIGHT 'ON THE TOWN' THEN IN THE WOODS." Tree hugging hippies, us liberals.

And the opposite for "Conservatives READ MORE BOOKS" Well, maybe not the opposite... I'd say its pretty close. All the liberal propaganda and conservative propaganda is about equal. But for fun... I'd guess that liberals read more books, but I can't say that is an accurate assumption.


I think conservatives are more likely to:
Have kids
Follow tradition
go to college
join the military
live in Texas or Missouri

I think Liberals are more likely to:
Be a creative writing major
move abroad
be left handed
live in Ann Arbor, Kalamazoo, or San Fransisco

In general I have seen that most conservatives want to be cultured or well rounded, so they travel to Europe, attend plays regularly in the city, and have read many books. I don’t necessarily agree that they are more likely to serve in the military but I do think they are more likely to have a family history of being in the military.

I think everyone wants to be cultured and well rounded.

Err... maybe that's my wishful thinking.

Ah, Kalamazoo. I live there. Not very liberal at all.
