I knew there had to be some sort of medical explanation for liberals….
The discovery of the “DRD4” gene (aka the liberal gene) is the “first specific bit of human DNA that predisposes people to certain political views,” says lead researcher James H Fowler. From Fox News:
“The way openness is measured, it’s really about receptivity to different lifestyles, for example, or different norms or customs,” he told FoxNews.com. “We hypothesize that individuals with a genetic predisposition toward seeking out new experiences [a measure of openness] will tend to be more liberal” — but only if they had a number of friends when growing up, Fowler cautioned.”
He continued to say, “ideology is about 40 percent heritable. It’s almost half genes and half environment.” So yes, unfortunately stupidity can be passed on to your offspring.
Thank goodness for good genetics.
