I have wondered for many years what makes a person cling to liberal beliefs, when the evidence is usually heavily arrayed against them. It is not a question of intelligence, as some liberals give every indication of being quite bright in non-political endeavors. I have concluded that it is a question of emotional maturity. Liberals are mainly arrested adolescents, people who have never fully matured. Look at the key Democrat Party demographics, college kids, young single women, minorities benefiting from government largess, Hollywood celebrities . . . not a mature, fully actualized individual in the bunch. Of course they prefer fantasy solutions to real world solutions, they've never lived in the real world.
