Default Happiness not found by conservatives

I was wondering why conservatives are always so unhappy. Maybe they haven't found the moral justification for their selfishness yet like Galbraith said? Anyway, I think we would be better off with democrats always in charge. A couple links showing how Democrats run thing better.

Maybe we are unhappy because we live in a nation with 8 percent unemployment close to 17 TRILLION in debt. 2 wars and it looks like another one heading for N. Africa . NO space program - Iran building a NUKE etc. You think maybe that might make people unhappy?

Conservatives are unhappy? Who cares? They are the ones who have to live in their heads.

No heart.

Conservatives = All Brains, No Heart
Liberals = All Heart, No Brains

Or so that's how the story goes.

The reality... Classic liberals = Heart and Brains in equal shares.
