The most liberal and conservative jobs
I thought this was interesting. A couple are pretty obvious, but it seems most just make you wonder why. Why is it that people who choose to do _____ for a living tend to be conservative/liberal? Is political preference tied to our personalities which is also tied to our vocations?

Quote:[url=http://verdantlabs.com/politics_of_professions/index.html]Verdant Labs, which makes a baby names app, recently published an extensive chart on the average political affiliations of various professions. To create the graphic, the company aggregated data from the Federal Election Commission on contributions to political parties, and used that information as a proxy for political views.

"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

The most conservative jobs are of the nut variety...

Quite a few of those jobs are more location-dependent in areas that would be far more conservative or liberal-dominated. Larger cities tend to have more liberal populations, while rural areas tend to be more conservative, for example.

The young liberal barista college student who voted for Sanders may become a republican surgeon in middle age. He wants free college now and later he will want to keep more of his salary. Self serving redistributilon of wealth now vs. self serving tax loopholes later.

It really depends on your outlook. I'm pretty much the opposite. When I was a college student I was a laissez faire Libertarian. Now I have a job and pay taxes, I'm more of a pragmatic Libertarian, and I don't mind paying more taxes if the services they fund are going to benefit society.

I'm surprised about the Taxi drivers
