Drinking makes you more conservative

"In Study 1, alcohol intoxication was measured among bar patrons; as blood alcohol level increased, so did political conservatism (controlling for sex, education, and political identification)." - Personality & Social Psychology Bulletin

It doesn't take a genius to think this one through. Alcohol makes you more stupid. And the radicals who get away with calling themselves conservatives today are not conservatives. They are nothing like conservatives.

This "finding" is but an obvious corollary of the following observation: not all conservative people are stupid, but all stupid people are conservative. And what is drunkenness more fundamentally than induced stupidity?

Unfortunately, I've run into a lot of stupid liberals, too, sober and drunk.

It's not a partisan problem.

When I was young liberal, I was also a pot head and rarely drank. Now that I'm an old conservative, I just drink beer and some wine.

So does pot make you a smart liberal? (Then why is it often called DOPE!) Am I a conservative now because of the beer?

BTW; http://prorev.com/ is my favorite progressive www site. I too think that the war on pot is insane as is taking guns away from law abiding citizens.
