It's funny when what one knows to be true is verified by a study. The Pew Research Center released a study that shows that Republicans are happier than Democrats. No kidding. We work, live life, and enjoy the fruits of our labor (when they're not taxed to feed the parasites by liberals) and basically chase our dream. In fact, the Gunny was on the road this weekend and had the pleasure of meeting a right-wing extremist worth almost a billion dollars. He started with ONE DUMP TRUCK and worked 70-80 hours A WEEK and now owns quarries, paving companies, construction companies, etc. He is, as he put it, "chasing his dream." Appears he caught it as well. The REAL Abraham Lincoln (not the wannabe in the White house today) stated: "Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be." We as Conservatives are far happier than the libstain moonbats who wake up angry, live angry, go to sleep angry, and die angry (but not soon enough for the Gunny). Just compare our Tea Party's to the liberal moonbats screeching hate fests, a number of them recorded on film by Zombie. http://zombietime.com/hall_of_shame/ EXCERPT: Overall happiness among U.S. residents has not changed much over the years, according to the latest survey by the Pew Research Center that finds 34 percent of adults are very happy. Among 3,014 telephone respondents, half reported being pretty happy, and 15 percent said they are not too happy. The survey, released this week, points out several disparities based on lifestyle, beliefs and political persuasion:
1. Republicans are happier than Democrats.
2. People who worship frequently are happier than those who don't.
3. Married people are happier than the unmarried.
About 45 percent of Republicans said they were very happy, compared with 30 percent of Democrats. Republicans have been happier in surveys going back to 1972, the Pew study notes. The reason might seem obvious, since "Republicans tend to have more money than Democrats, and—as we've already discovered—people who have more money tend to be happier," the report states. But even after adjusting for income, poor Republicans are happier than poor Democrats, and rich Republicans are happier than rich Democrats. What about religion? Forty-three percent of people who attend religious services weekly or more say they're very happy, compared to 26 percent of those who go seldom or never. The Pew analysis does not answer the question of how religion, Republicanism and happiness might be related, however.
Maybe what the real deal is, is that we on the Right follow what is PROVEN to be right, and that is: Life, Liberty, and the Pusuit of HAPPINESS! Something our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us and wrote it into the preamble of the Declaration of Independence. Why we're more happy than liberal drones seems to be that WE dn't count on the government for everything as they do. For example, the Obama economy sucks and it's getting worse but there are opportunities to invest and take risks that may pay off in the long run. We take those risks, libs don't. They'll take a welfare check in a NY nanosecond but buying a home to fix up and rent out? Nope. Buying stock in a company that may perform? Nope. Opening one's own business? Nope. We seek independence to use our talents (on loan from God as Rush says) to pursue our dreams, libs want everything handed to them. When we fail, we drop back ten yards and think about our avenues of approach. Stressful? HELL YES! Rewarding in the end? HELL YES! Liberals want to suck on the government teat from the cradle to the grave and when the t*tty runs dry, they start whining.
In the study, Easterbrook writes: "Research shows that people who are grateful, optimistic and forgiving have better experiences with their lives, more happiness, fewer strokes, and higher incomes." EXACTLY! WHO can't claim that Conservatves are more generous, more forgiving, more grateful for what we have (we're more religious), and that we're more optimistic about the future. They don't call the Democrat Nazi Party the party of doom and gloom for nothing. In fact, listen to the pablum spewed by the Mystical Magical Negro (LA Times) in the year PRIOR to the election and ever since the clown was sworn-in, on the bad economy, the evil capitalists, the impending doom of gloBULL warming, now gloBULL cooling, etc, etc, ad nauseum.Perhaps the most important part of the stusy is that it SHOWS Conservatives/Republicans to better able to cope with difficulties. When WE encounter a problem, WE think of a solution. When the libvermin encounter a problem as a child they run to Mommy. As an adult, they run to the government. Indeed, since the libstains seized power in the Congress in Jan 2007, they have done NOTHING but pass law after law trying to take every bump out of the road for their whiners. Typical libgirls.
It appears that Freud, theorized that unhappiness is a default condition because it takes less effort to be unhappy than to be happy. Again we see that the inherent LAZINESS of liberals keeps them oppressed and holds them back. Again, we WORK, LIVE LIFE, and are happy. Maybe the Gunny should pen a children's reading primer, "the big brown dog p*ssed on the lazy liberal!" haha. Or even better, "See the Lazy Liberals Live in Misery" and provide examples to the kiddies on how liberals suck, how to spot them, and better still, how to effectively taunt them and savor their Schadenfreude! haha.
"If you are looking for something to complain about, you are absolutely certain to find it. It requires some effort to achieve a happy outlook on life, and most people don't make it. Most people take the path of least resistance. Far too many people today don't make the steps to make their life more fulfilling one." Easterbrook.So as we can see, the whiners, parasites, crybabies, sissies, metrosexuals, dolts, drones, idiots, and malingerers all gravitate to the the Democrat Nazi Party, which is comprised, the Gunny should relate, of 100% LAWYERS! The very vermin who exist simply to feed off of others and to make OUR lives more difficult as they twist the law to suit their purposes. SO right-wingers, BE HAPPY for who you are and what you are and REVEL in the fact that our enemies are miserable creatures living a p*ss-poor life full of hate and discontent. We'll win by OUTLIVING the self-aborting vermin! haha. SUCK ON THAT LIBERALS!
