Look at the Democratic and Republican conventions, hundreds are arrested at the Republican conventions for disorderly conduct but you never hear of it at the Democrat conventions. I am not saying one side's views are any better than another's because I take from both, but the way the left expresses their views always seems kind of Looney Toons. I know the right has its loons as well, just seems more common among the left. You would think all the pot would calm them ;)
There also tend to be a lot more young, disenfranchised people that are more prone to emotion on the left side of the political spectrum. The right is mostly made up of middle-aged, white pussies.
So, young, emotional cry-babies on the left and middle-aged cowards on the right.
Sounds about right.
What do the right, other than the looney social conservatives, have to violently protest about? They don't mind war or the death penalty. Really, taxes are the only thing most conservatives are up-in-arms about (again, other than social conservatives with homosexuality and abortion), and that's hardly a topic worth going to jail over.
Of course, I generalize the demographics of the left and the right, but the left does skew young and idealistic (emotional) while the right tends to be older and more pragmatic.
