One of the most important differences between the right and the left -- one that greatly helps to explain their differences -- is the difference between unhappy liberals and unhappy conservatives.
Unhappy conservatives generally believe they are unhappy because life is inherently difficult and tragic, and because they have made some unwise decisions in life.
But unhappy liberals generally believe they are unhappy because they have been persecuted.
By this measure, I'm definitely a conservative, in spite of what that test on facebook says (it made me out to be a hardcore leftist, I think because I tolerate messes pretty well).
