The Genetic Basis For Political Affiliation

Researchers at Harvard and the University of California San Diego claim to have discovered a liberal gene. Although I’m not kidding, I wish I were kidding. The gene, DRD4, as well as being linked to liberality has been associated with eating disorders, sex addiction (the future hypersexuality disorder), schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Cambridge Journals Journal of Politics reported the study results in Friendships Moderate an Association between a Dopamine Gene Variant and Political Ideology.

I feel certain that these findings have come at a time too early for people, such as I’m assuming the authors of this study must be, suffering from conservative disorder, to have all those people identified as suffering from liberal disorder locked up and treated in state hospitals. Such a possibility would, of course, be considered godsend for people suffering from conservative disorder just around election time.
