Few years ago I came across an article about the DRD4 gene that claimed that liberalism is genetically predisposed; call it mental disease if you want, but I learned that some people will NOT be persuaded no matter how hard I tried to present my case in plain English. Well, my son grew out of his starry-eyed liberalism pretty early, my daughter did not, and I, regrettably, lost some of my (former) friends after heated debates. As Ann Coulter noted: "Historically, the best way to convert liberals is to have them move out of their parents' home, get a job, and start paying taxes". Well, some stay immune even when exposed to truth (see Ronald Reagan's biological kids, and how Michael turned out). Is it really that hard-wired? (cont'd)
