It turns out that regardless of marital status, income or church attendance, right-wing individuals on average are happier than liberals because they have a higher capacity for rationalization. A new study finds that GOPpers can justify or explain away inequalities better than loony lefties and are happier because of it.Right-wingers believe more in merit based pay (making what you EARN) whereas left-wingers believe in handout programs like welfare. Also, liberals feel that some people don't get a fair chance in life and it depresses them; conservatives don't care. This further explains a previous study from 2006 that said that 47% of conservative Republicans call themselves Very Happy, while only 28% of liberal Democrats described themselves as Very Happy.Eat it, liberals.
