Reading the two responses, I believe these judgments are still incorrect. And I'm super happy that Crystal and Jessie are trying to understand, because, for the most part, liberals do not try to understand and feel justified in doing so. Understanding others is HARD and there is a tendency to stereotype to a make them look foolish or worse, as the TED-talk does (in a way). So I would please ask that you read https://medium.com/@ SeanBlanda/the-other-side-is-not-dumb-2670c1294063#.wf81juamt because it explains this from neither side. I was liberal most of my life and then a number of things happened to make me far more open. I'm neither liberal or conservative. If any of you are interested in a conversation, you have my email address. Here's one thing I have come to understand that neither source really explains. The differences between both sides come from their primary assumptions about what it takes to have a good country and good people. The list of characteristics is largely the same for both sides but they are prioritized in a very different order. Both would agree upon many things if listened to. When speaking, however, they push certain things to the exclusion of others. In real life, though, that doesn't happen. Trump voters voted based on their top assumptions alone, and do did Clinton voters. Neither wants bad things to happen. They are mostly good people.
