    Default Conservatives Care less About inequality.

    https://www.researchgate.net/publica...nitive_ability

    "low cognitiveability may be related to conservative syndrome (or con-servatism, for short) which, in turn, is defined in terms ofmeasures of personality, social attitudes, values, and socialnorms. There are two ways to arrive at this assumption. First,we can assume that cognitive ability affects conservatismdirectly. Thus, the perceived threat may vary depending oncognitive level —sources of threat such as complexity, novelty,and ambiguity may be more threatening to those who scorelow as opposed to those who score high on cognitive test"
    Why Biden? Because Fuck You that's why. Barack Obama has a Grammy, an Emmy, a Nobel Prize, 2 terms as President and a Twitter account.

    Donald Trump has 2 impeachments.

    Inequalities …

    4+(-8) < 4-(-8)
    8(0) > 21(-3)

    I’ve been trying to teach my kids how to tell how one number is less than another since August. I think they’re finally getting it. I care.

    Sounds to me like your kids are smarter than you.

    For individuals to embrace the hands that rips them off, they must have some truly serious cognitive problems.

    Conservatism = plutocracy

    Plutocracy is detrimental to the working class.

    Plutocracy -- a country or society governed by the wealthy. plural noun: plutocracies

    It has been that way in this country for a long time. What middle class individual can afford to take the risk, take time away from his job and campaign for office. I sure couldn't. That's a big reason why it's the wealthier than average that typically wind up in Washington...whether they are conservative or liberal...democrat or republican. Take a look:

    Biden net worth - > $8mil https://www.forbes.com/sites/michela...h=7169f6c3461b
    Harris net worth - > 6.3 mil owns three Los Angeles homes https://www.marieclaire.com/politics...ris-net-worth/
    Sanders net worth - > 3 mil (one of the least of the Senators to be honest but > average nonetheless) https://www.gobankingrates.com/net-w...sanders-money/
    Pelosie net worth - > 114.7 mil https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ress_by_wealth

    In fact, of the top ten most wealthy members of congress, 5 are republicans and 5 are democrats. Of the top 50 it breaks down to 29 republican and 21 democrat. (previous link)

    So to say conservatism = plutocracy is patently false.

    Inequality is the argument of fools and uneducated morons. You're a mirror of the stupid diatribe's you ascribe to Republicans. You really are too brain dead to comprehend that obvious fact.

    They can't. They would have to have an IQ above room temp and get educated.
