When the right says something outrageous against the left, they get offended and throw a tantrum.

When the left says something outrageous against the right, we get a good laugh out of it and embrace it.

I got to get me one of them deplorable buttons.

The difference between left and right is their opinions. I am way to the left and I do not see right wing people as

emotional
psychopathic
stupid
mentally ill
defective
non-human
brain washed
ignorant

I see them as people having a really different take on things compared to me. I think we form our opinions mainly because of three things, the country/culture we grow up in, the parents we have and their values, and our innate personality traits.

Why do we debate? I think to adjust our own opinions within the frames that are "possible" for our own opinions. Not to change someone else's views but to polish off the rough edges of our own opinions. But that is just my opinion.

Generally the right is more logical and the left is more emotional in their decision making.

I think people go a lot by emotion but they come up with things to back it up with logic, because logic is praised.

So right wingers will feel they are more logical. So will left wingers.

I would add one more important thing "Wisdom"

You made a good point about personality effecting ones political view.
Are you sure you are way left? Your ideas are original, and thoughtfull, not the standard propaganda, and you are not bitter, and it seems like you have a positive attitude, and don't think you are superior because your feelings are stronger.
You are just not angry enough to be a leftist.

I think you are right about emotion, and both sides claiming the intellectual high ground, that is until wisdom starts kicking in at 30 or 40 years old, then wisdom trumps the upbringing, emotion and personality, that is if your personality allows you to gain wisdom.
If your personality does not allow you to admit error, you will be slow to gain wisdom from experience.

On a more serious note, the differences between the left and the right, democrats and republicans, liberal and conservative is more philosophical than anything.

Liberals see the world how it "should" be, conservatives see the world how it is. This is our difference.

I posit that the fundamental difference between the left and the right, is the capacity for empathy. More empathic people being generally more left-leaning, and less empathic, more right-leaning.

As a means of testing whether my hypothesis is correct, here is a test anyone who wants to can take to establish their "empathy quotient" (this is not, or at least should not be a politically based test) :

Left-leaning. Scored a 63 out of 80. Don't know what that means. But man that test could have been better designed, layout-wise. The tightly packed rows of questions made things rather tedious.

not true at all.. while conservative (speaking purely of how its defined, not by the "conservative" party affiliations).. they believe if a man is starving, teach him how to fish... liberals believe if the man is starving, take three fish from a third man who worked for them, give one to the starving man and keep the other two for yourself

It's really more an issue of empathy of results versus empathy of intentions. The right wing doesn't award points for intentions.

the difference between the left and the right is:


Left: wants to scrap the Consitution, believing it's an old, outdated document, even though they won't consider its interpretation in the correct grammatical context for the time it was written, OR make use of the INCLUDED amendment method, because the Framers designed it to force compromise.

Right: wants to honor the Constitution and interpret it in the correct grammatical context for the time it was written.




The former destroys the very underpinnings of the rule of law... the latter preserves it.

Those are the talking points, but I find that they rarely apply to real people.

Did you take the test?

I got 50 of 80

Difference:

Left: I pay more in healthcare, way more in taxes.

Right: pay less in taxes, less in healthcare

That's all I care about.

Everything else is noise. I can live in the middle of nowhere and be perfectly fine. But making me pay huge amounts of taxes for no reason. 39.5% at federal level. That's absurd.. When I get nothing in return.

I got 19. But I kind of knew I would. People have told me before that I have little empathy. They're wrong- I have a lot for people I like and most animals. I just have little for people who caused the very issues through stupidity they think should make me to feel sorry for them.

And I quickly ignore people who can't deal with another's POV and get offended by it. They need to grow up!
