Yeah...is it starting to sink in to your tiny mind now?
How about Obama? Here's a tip since your Canadian....do a quick google and you'll find Obama pimping himself as being for small government.
Is he lying like Bush? And if government has shrunk, and he's supporting that....where does that fall into your party lines that you just listed?
Starting to catch on yet?
is what sinking in, clearly neuroscience isn't your area. You can obviously find ideological discrepancies, however, in general terms you can create a workable dichotomy of beliefs. Again actions would have no neuronal correlates, it is belief that is measured. Delusion, circumstance etc all change actions, attitudes/beliefs are generally intransigent and pervasive.
so you have social issues, regardless of actual outcome that is clear between left and right.
economic principles are for the most part different.
Nothing tiny about my mind, straight 4.0 through all of school baby boi, I can list the krebs cycle enzymes and steps the components of the mesocoticolimbic pathway, all forms of serotonergic receptors and still defeat your delusion of importance.
