Mystery:Why Do Non-Conservatives Exist?
Conservative principles are based on reason. So why do non-conservatives still exist? Here are some reasons:
20%: did not hear about conservative principles until after they made up their mind and, perhaps due to pervasive societal bias, refuse to reconsider
10%: genuinely lack of desire to find the truth, and instead desire attention, praise by liberal teachers, getting along by going along, and not standing up to liberal bullies
10%: refuse to forgive themselves and let go of their past mistakes and image
10%: believe myths created around government programs like the "New Deal" that liberal policies create jobs instead of destroying them and depriving people of liberty through government control.
10%: fooled by the demonizing of conservatives and mistakenly feel that conservative benefits are available only to those who are from an intact family or privileged background
10%: refuse to rise above their personal temptations, often self-destructive, and hate conservatives who criticize their self-indulgent behavior
10%: feel that they deserve to make more money than they do, as in public school teachers, university professors and scientists, and refuse to rise above self-interest
10%: harbor a grudge against a conservative, typically a parent but sometimes an ex-spouse, and refuse to forgive or rise above the animosity
5%: like an anarchist, genuinely want to believe in and propagate destructive ideas (Due to the tendency of non-conservatives to refuse to admit this even to themselves, this number could be much higher)
5%: are susceptible to marketing and suggestion to an overlarge degree.
What Triggers Reconsideration of Liberal Beliefs?
What triggers reconsideration of liberal beliefs? Here are some estimates:
25%: raising or teaching children, and realizing how destructive liberal values are to many of them
15%: a religious conversion followed by taking the Bible to heart
10%: a loss of a loved one that resulted from accepting or promoting liberal values, as in losing a loved one to crime caused by pornography, drug addiction, gambling, etc.
10%: a new friendship with someone who is conservative, and realizing how much good flows from the conservative values
10%: simply by maturing and seeing liberalism's impact around them, and realizing what they were taught as youth was wrong
5%: a desire to learn the truth, and a dislike for those who mislead
5%: a genuine divine experience that can not be explained.
5%: using conservative values to overcome an addiction, and then realizing the benefits of conservative values in many other ways
5%: taking a truthful course in economics, or learning it in the workforce
