Why are Lib celebrities like Tom Hanks, Clooney so nice and Cons like Jon Voight/James Woods such

bitter assholes?

I could name 50 more that fit the same pattern.

They're all rich with royalties rolling in for life so it is not money.

I just don't get it. I refuse to put money into the center of the divide.

2. I think we liberals are just happier people in general.

To be a conservative today means living in fear, and basing your every decision on hatred. One is not likely to remain a pleasant person for long under those emotional conditions.

3. I knew conservative radio talkshow host Jerry Doyle.

He was a dick when he was in his twenties, before "fame."

6. I think it boils down to rejection.

Liberals - we're used to being rejected and as such we've developed a sense of humor about it. Conservatives on the other hand, think that the world owes them everything on a silver platter, and if they don't get their way, they take it out on everybody else. Hitler is a perfect example of this - he's a rejected artist who went apeshit after nobody was buying his art. Then there's Andrew Breitbart (rejected screenwriter), then there's the Joker (rejected stand up comedian), then Dana Loesch (rejected actress), James Woods (rejected actor), I could go on and on.

11. Why so nice people not want to take away food and healthcare from the poor?

Why do nice people not oppose LGBTQ rights?

Why do nice people not hate immigrants fleeing violence and extreme poverty?

I can go on and on, but I think I made my point.
