If Democrats are way more depressed, why should I be a Democrat?

In psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

Conservatives Are Happier Than Liberals. 

Republicans have been happier in surveys going back to 1972, the Pew study notes.

Hello:

Just goes to show how useful idiots help our adversary's.

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals..

Globalism allows companies to subvert paying taxes by being able to move offshore. You say you want more taxes while voting the party that promotes globalism and just made big pharma record profits off of a virus that they funded the creation of. The party you vote for offshored the creation of our medication to China, and when the pandemic hit, they literally turned their ships with medicine around and didn't send it here. That is the full embodiment of a "useful idiot". And in fact, you're so useful that they now have you paying $5 for gas, double for food, are offshoring tax dollars to foreign countries, are sending manufacturing offshore, are grooming kids, have destroyed the cities they control causing you to flee, and you're just begging them and pleading for them to lead you some more. That's stupidity on steroids.

And yet here you are, still unable to actually address the topic of the debate. That means that not only is your position on the actual topic inferior, but that you know that it's inferior.

Hello topic Nazi:

The topic of the debate is a straw man.. I don't DO straw men.

So, as is my preference, I took the opportunity to post whatever the fuck I wanted to post.

Of COURSE it pisses you off..

Conservatives Are Happier Than Liberals.

Hello hater:

Ok, I'll address your post..

I'm a lib because it's the CORRECT way to think.. It's the American way to think. I'm NOT a lib because it's the popular way to think.. I'm NOT a lib because my friends are.. In fact, if I was the last liberal on earth, it would NOT change the correctness of my views..

Being correct makes me happy.

I'm a conservative because it's the correct way to think. I wouldn't explain why if I were you either. No sane person can defend grooming kids, defend making desired pronoun usage mandatory by law, or making people show their medical card in a direction violation of HIPPA laws.

Being correct makes me happy.

Democrats appear to be the most miserable people on Earth. Studies prove they are.

It's the American way to think.

That can mean anything. It's the American way to think to force people to buy big pharma's products, close down businesses putting them out of business and flood the market with fed cash causing massive inflation? It's the American way to send our manufacturing to other nations that hate us? It's the American way to charge kids insane amounts on tuition at liberal colleges and to censor anyone who disagrees? What?

All the negative features you have listed can be easily eradicated with the introduction of fair and competitive corporation taxes and placing a trade embargo on all nations which do not have the same health & safety regulations, anti- religious & race discrimination laws, along with equal-opportunities legislation in place as we do.

The time for big hearted Uncle Sam has long since passed and we must now only allow imports from those nations which play by our rules.

The Chinese ploy of destroying the manufacturing base of their industrial competitors by swamping their domestic markets with below-cost goods and then raising their prices once they've eliminated ''the competition' is old-hat yet we permit them to do so.

I WAS DOING THIS TO MY COMPANY'S COMPETITION BACK IN THE 1970s.

Reduce corporation tax and introduce other financial incentives and you'll find the American corporations who manufacture abroad will come streaming back.

Most of our industrial concerns are seriously lacking effective counter cyber and industrial espionage techniques and as a consequence the Chinese, and others are stealing the inventions produced by our highly expensive research & development.

TIME FOR ALL AMERICANS TO DITCH THE WOKE/LEFT-WING NONSENSE, UNITE AND FACE THE REAL ENEMIES OF OUR COUNTRY TOGETHER.

UNITED WE WIN, DIVIDED WE FALL.

To be innovative, as most conservatives are, and create things and develop ideas which benefit your fellow human beings brings a sense of achievement and well-being.

This in turn leads to a sense of well earned happiness.

On the opposite side of the fence we have the Democrat's philosophy of bailing out life's losers by using the wealth created by others.

Such thievery gives them a very temporary sense of sanctimonious empowerment which quickly dissipates when the fools realize that the dosh they stolen from the wealth creators has dried up.

Their ill-founded feelings of euphoria then turns to deep depression.

Such is the mentality of THE LEFT WING FILTH.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free run 3

No one can really understand the political left without understanding that they are about making themselves feel superior, however much they may talk piously about what they are going to do to help others. But frankly, attempting to make one's self feel superior does not end in happiness. It ends in defensiveness towards any threat to that attempt to feel superior.

The difference between a policy and a crusade is that a policy is judged by its results, while a crusade is judged by how good it makes its crusaders feel.

Hello T:

I dunno why you keep talking... On this very thread, you have been shown to be completely ignorant on the issue of which side denigrates the other side..

You DID see it, no?? Lemme help, then.. One of your polite right wingers just told me that I was by far, the biggest dumbass on the face of the earth..

And, you want us to believe they're POLITE???

The point wasn't that the right was polite. The point was that the left, including yourself, use a "lack of politeness" to mask never making a point. Your debate opponent did make a point and with a multitude of links. In fact you're still doing it now. The topic is depression. Point me to where you spoke on depression, and I will gladly take a look at the points you made. If not, then you have made my point.
