What leads a child to grow up and vote for a Republican candidate like Mitt Romney or a Democrat such as Barack Obama? Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that parenting style and childhood temperament plays a key role in determining a child’s future political mindset—as in, the bumper sticker your kid decides to slap on her car when she turns 18 might depend on how you reacted when she sneaked out of the house to meet her boyfriend.

The study found that children of strict parents were more likely to turn conservative while those of lenient parents were more likely to lean left. What’s more, children “with higher levels of fearfulness during young childhood” were more likely to have conservative values at age 18, while kids “with higher levels of attentional focusing and activity or restlessness” tended to be liberal, according to LiveScience.

This was sent to me by an avid reader:

For those of you who are fortunate to be YOUNG ENOUGH to NOT remember…

Do you notice that some people will  say… DON’T DRINK THE KOOL AID !!! or they will say HE “must have sipped the kool aid” !!! 

Both are NEGATIVE comments…

but do you know WHY? How about it defines someone who will follow an IDEA… BLINDLY.

In our history… the KOOL AID can kill you.

In 1978, ONE MAN,  named JIM JONES,  of the “PEOPLE’S TEMPLE”…

convinced 909 people TO COMMIT SUICIDE by drinking his KOOL AID… laced with cyanide poisoning…

supposedly, the people KNEW what they were drinking… and those who did not have the “courage” to do what he asked… well…. they were shot in the head.. including 303 CHILDREN.

This phrase of “kool aid” has carried a NEGATIVE CONNOTATION EVER SINCE.

It is how liberalism is described many times…

Anyway, learn the disgusting “church” of JIM JONES & HIS PERVERSIONS…

 and how he convinced all these folks… to KILL THEMSELVES.. simultaneously… or be shot.

It was a SHOCK TO OUR WORLD at the time.

AND WHILE I AM NOT FOND OF WIKI ANYTHING… I know you guys go there for information… it is NOT ALL THAT accurate.. but at least, you will see that this crap is TRUE.. maybe you will find out more on your own…

The moral of the story.. do not drink ANYBODY’S KOOL AID.. unless you understand EXACTLY, what is in it.

Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.

“Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard. [See political cartoons about the 2012 GOP field.]

“The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam.
