This is what I like about ScienceDaily. About 9 out of 10 times, they link the original citation, IMHO.
Hopefully this can lead to a cure for liberalism!

I am surprised that they they did not conclude that democrats use “higher” reasoning areas of the brain.
It seems in these studies there is always some slant that attempts to make demonrats look smarter
The red brain says I will take this risk and be responsible for it.
The blue brain picks its nose and eats it.
My experience in life directly contradicts theses findings.
Most liberals I know are illogical and base their decisions largely on emotion — supposedly an attribute of the right side of the brain.
Liberals use the area of the brain used for emotions and feelings .... Conservatives use the part of the brain used in logic,, analysis and objectivity. Yup ... it actually makes sense.
“Socialize the risk; privatize the reward.” — every liberal ever.
“To those who take the risk should go the reward.” — conservatives.
When Red brains process risk, they are processing risck to their own money. When Blue brains process risk, they are calculating risk on other people’s money.
uh huh, yeah, that’s the ticket, the liberals are “socially aware” and the conservatives “fight or flight” like a neanderthal beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee essssssssssssssss
I’ve found that liberals take risks with an assumption that mommy and daddy (government) will save them from any mistake.
Assuming most conservatives are like me - I worry about any risk in terms of if there’s an outcome where I end up homeless.
It’s true - Democrats use the part of the brain located in their butts.
This is why you can’t use logic, reason and facts with liberals.
They don’t process those things.
Instead, they process feelings. Republicans make them feel bad because Republicans tell the truth and it can be harsh sometimes. Like owning guns. Liberals don’t want to be confronted with the harsh reality that something bad might happen to them in a situation where they will have a need for a gun to defend themselves and their loved ones.
OTOH, if some smooth-talking BS artist comes on TV and tells them a bunch of fairy tales that makes them feel warm and fuzzy, they will swoon with joy no matter how preposterous the fairy tales are.
Reagan succeeded in reaching many on the left because he made them feel good about America, but at the same time he logically spelled out his conservative agenda and policies which appealed to conservatives resulting in two landslide wins.
Look at the irrational hatred they had for Sarah Palin - how do you explain it?
You can’t. The hatred of Palin was never about her accomplishments or policies, it was personal.
It was illogical. The spewing of hatred was the left revealing an ugly emotion.
Ask them why they hate Palin and they will either recite a litany of falsehoods, or they will say “I just do. Something about her just burns me up!”
Ask a conservative why he disagrees with Obama. You won’t hear them recite a litany of falsehoods. Instead, they will tell you why his policies are bad for this country.
At this point, facts and logic will overload the liberal brain and they will blame Obama’s predecessor, call you a racist and other hateful things since they can’t defend the indefensible, but Obama is like a drug to them and like a drug addict, they will be in denial.
In order for a Republican to win the WH, he or she will have to appeal to both logic and emotion in order to get enough of Dems to feel good about voting for them because a Dem will punch a ballot based on who makes them feel warm and fuzzy.
Either that, or Dems are just flat-out stupid.
