I can tell. I was working by 16, lost virginity at 15, dating my whole my life, I lived on my own since I finished college. Pretty much the opposite life of my conservative friends.
I know more people who have switched to lib but still have a very annoying Christian/spiritual, and moralistic, mindset which is strange. I think conservative views attract certain personalities. I know more normal people who are libertarians finance people, hunters. I am talking about the pro life Christian socially conservative type of republicans.
Libertarians are an interesting mix. I think it tends to be one of the most interesting parties because it's not a dominant one and I think people become more independently attracted to it often coming from one of the two dominant ones.Well, I feel rude just for venturing a wild guess, but my thinking is that people who don't succeed very well in life are often, not always, plagued with a "victim" mindset. They're lacking in accountability, or they just don't care anymore. They blame society for their problems, see themselves as hopeless. When life knocks them down, they lack the internal resources to get back up on their feet.Typically I see this kind of mindset more prevalent among the left. It's actually one of my main criticisms of it is to encourage this type of mindset that wants to blame things like the patriarchy or the bourgeoise for one's own failings. But I do find a subset on the right who are like this and they tend to be hardcore Christians (not that all hardcore Christians are like this) with a raging "victim" mindset. And they're usually the types who, instead of picking themselves up and making something of their lives, rely on prayer as the ultimate solution to their problems.
I don’t know I see the I’m a minority of society way of thinking With conservatives, and sometimes they think the media is out to get them and hates them.
That too, although I don't always see that type as an inhibitor to landing a job or getting a girlfriend. The worst cases I've seen were my mother and her church. I'm an atheist and towards the libertarian side of the spectrum but she was one of those hardcore religious types -- so much that she was running protests against homosexuals and against Disney for hiring them. And she had a very strong case of the "victim" mindset -- spending money recklessly when we had little and then praying for a solution, e. g. I never saw prayer as solving anything. But it's like she's praying to her God as a welfare recipient prays to the state.
Most of the libs I know are very moderate. Of course you have the blue hair, vegan, non binary types, but that’s like 1% of liberals. I myself lean moderate because I don’t think they should restrict guns totally but for gag standards I’m very liberal. Where I live we have a lot of pro life marches, trump rallies, and such and you can tell the type.
I might have gotten a more skewed impression of democrats living in LA for a while. I saw more of the extreme ones that were either moderately to very successful all the way down to the poorest welfare recipients. Meanwhile, I also lived in San Antonio, TX for a while and knew lots of extremely successful Republicans. The experiences probably vary wildly from state-to-state.
I was born in Brooklyn originally lived in Queens for a little bit, but now in live in Manhattan it’s very diverse, and urban, I’ve been to Los Angeles a lot, NYC is much more like San Francisco. It’s so big here the Republican events can get extreme though just like in San Francisco.
I would spend whole summers in West Hollywood as a child.
