Unhappy people become Liberals.

People seek out those that are similar.  Birds of a feather flock together.
  An unhappy person looks around and sees two groups:  happy people, and unhappy people.  Rather than take a page out of the former group, enter the herd and ask for (and likely receive) help and guidance on how to become happy, the person is more likely to choose the path of least resistance — of instant acceptance. €"Come to Mumsy, darling, you're one of us." And once in the herd, it becomes very, very difficult to leave it. -- » Why Unhappy People Become Liberals - Big Government [HT: Morgan]

Your Say

Misery not only loves company, misery requires company. Unhappy, angry people deliberately seek each other out because anger and misery must be validated.

Happiness and contentment are themselves their own validation. A happy man or woman does not need others to tell them that they are right to be happy.

But uhappy or discontented people do. So they find one another. This also explains why the Left out-organizes the Right.
