Conservatives are more attractive

RE: Conservatives are more attractive
As for attractive, rich, successful celebrities always being Democrat, I'm not sure.

My guess would be that people in the entertainment industry tend to be very right brained... artistic and all that. And I think there is also a correlation between being right brained and voting Democrat. But I don't know... any other theories?

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."

UM no, wrong. You are confusing monopolies and discrimination as being the same as "better off". 

Greedy people can certainly bully others sure, but that doesn't make them better, it just makes them greedy.

You are talking bout long term narratives passed down from one generation to the next. But the good thing about bullshit narratives is that humans question social norms and that is when progress is made. 

If 45 were dirt poor, don't tell me his looks now would get him more attention from ladies.

There are lots of well off women who would NOT go near that asshole regardless of his money.

I've also seen very happy middle class and poor couples who don't have what the rich have and don't have trophy wives or trophy husbands.

Success in a relationship isn't about looks or money. It is always ultimately about communication and cooperation.

The fact that humans sell money as a motivation doesn't make it a cure all. There was a time in our species history when BOTH females and males were far more harry and when we didn't have coins or paper money or even cities or states or written language.

I'd only say that upon initial contact looks can draw someone in, but that does not mean the relationship will last forever.

Quote:Physical attractiveness is an important social factor in our daily interactions. Scholars in social psychology provide evidence that attractiveness stereotypes and the “halo effect” are prominent in affecting the traits we attribute to others. However, the interest in attractiveness has not directly filtered down to questions of political behavior beyond candidates and elites. Utilizing measures of attractiveness across multiple surveys, we examine the relationship between attractiveness and political beliefs. Controlling for socioeconomic status, we find that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative, and identify as Republican. These findings suggest an additional mechanism for political socialization that has further implications for understanding how the body intertwines with the social nature of politics.

Attractive to humans or baboons, or baboons who somehow conceive they are doing a good job masquerading as humans?

That’s funny. I’ve never met an attractive republican, and if I did, I didn’t know they were republican.

Only the FLDS do polygamy. Haven't met any of them.
