The findings demonstrate that conservative conversions are fueled not only by fear, but by other factors as well.

The generalization that "liberals are messier than conservatives" does not hold true in my own personal experience of it, as I am very conservative politically speaking and far messier than any liberal friends I have.
Liberals Are Racist, Study Suggests - II By James Taranto June 23, 2006 Two weeks ago, we noted an article by the Washington Post's Richard Morin, who conducted a study along with Shanto Iyengar of Stanford University that purported to find that Americans' attitudes toward Katrina victims were colored by race, to the disadvantage of blacks. We pointed out that the sample was highly skewed toward liberals and Democrats (as well as toward the well-educated and, to a lesser extent, toward whites), and said, "if this study shows that the participants are racially biased, that doesn't prove that Americans are racially biased. At most it proves that well-educated liberal white Americans are." Now Morin has done a follow-up column, in which he shows that we were right: As Iyengar and his colleagues subsequently dug deeper into these data, another finding emerged: Republicans consistently gave less aid, and gave over a shorter period of time, to victims regardless of race. Democrats and independents were far more generous; on average, they gave Katrina victims on average more than $1,500 a month, compared with $1,200 for Republicans, and for 13 months instead of nine. But for Democrats, race mattered--and in a disturbing way. Overall, Democrats were willing to give whites about $1,500 more than they chose to give to a black or other minority. (Even with this race penalty, Democrats still were willing to give more to blacks than those principled Republicans.) "Republicans are likely to be more stringent, both in terms of money and time, Iyengar said. "However, their position is 'principled' in the sense that it stems from a strong belief in individualism (as opposed to handouts). Thus their responses to the assistance questions are relatively invariant across the different media conditions. Independents and Democrats, on the other hand, are more likely to be affected by racial cues." . . . Iyengar said he's not surprised by the latest findings: "This pattern of results matches perfectly an earlier study I did on race and crime" with Franklin D. Gilliam Jr. of UCLA. "Republicans supported tough treatment of criminals no matter what they encountered in the news. Others were more elastic in their position, coming to support more harsh measures when the criminal suspect they encountered was non-white."
LoL right and i also remember him talking about not having fed funded abortions either.........he lied about that too, try reading the new bill......
Its not fear, its people seeing him for what he really is and what the Dems are doing, EVERY SINGLE THING THEY SAID THEY WOULDNT DO THEY DID......
You come on here and have posted two threads TODAY attacking conservatism, all the while, you are either ignorant to the facts or REFUSE to to concede ANYTHING that the administration is doing to the contrary of what they said they would!
How bout how his campaign was about doing away with racism, yet every chance he get he makes an issue of it? How bout in one breath condemning and SUING Arizona for POSSIBLE issue with race with their new immigration operations, and on the OTHER side, letting the Black Panthers slide with what is OBVIOUSLY RACISM and bullying at the polls?
Or the NAACP going after the Tea Party calling them racist, with NO proof what so ever, and the administration hasnt said a word
ITS A FARCE, ALL OF IT, and YOU are playing right into it..... Fear my butt, its called learning from your mistakes
