Researchers Find the 'Liberal Gene'

"If it made sense for us all to be liberal, natural selection would have made us all liberal."(Good thing it makes no sense)

The new Gene DRD4 (Democratic Reject Disorder 4) is a giant breakthrough in the field of DNA Study.
Scientists believe they can figure out who a Liberal is just by a DNA test.

I say giant breakthrough because the test could be used to prevent further spread of the disease known as LAS (Liberal Assclown syndrome).

Catching this at a young age might help those inflicted with this horrible disease, though it is untreatable.

Identifying this disease may help political parties in the future stop the spread of LAS, And in turn help out the world in the Long run! (Sarc off)

Don't hold liberals responsible for their opinion-- they can't help themselves.

(Don't worry we won't, They don't even take responsibility for own Opinions !)

A new study has concluded that ideology is not just a social thing; it's built into the DNA, borne along by a gene called DRD4. Tagged "the liberal gene," DRD4 is the first specific bit of human DNA that predisposes people to certain political views, the study's authors claim.

And the key to it all: Liberals are more open, said lead researcher James H. Fowler, a professor of both medical genetics and political science at the University of California, San Diego.

"The way openness is measured, it's really about receptivity to different lifestyles, for example, or different norms or customs," he told "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.

Fowler suggests that it made more sense to be liberal in certain environments at specific points in human history, and in others a conservative ideology was merited. "And this is what made it possible for our species to survive," he said.

"If it made sense for us all to be liberal, natural selection would have made us all liberal."
