Liberals Lose Logic.

The left's arguments are 99.99% always emotion based and not logic/reality based.

Here's an example:

Emotion is what wins arguments, and there is a tremendous amount of emotion among those fighting to reduce gun violence -- there always is when someone gets hurt or must go through the tragedies that we experience in this country as a result of gun violence.


That is important emotion, and it will do more for the argument for stronger gun laws than any facts or figures ever will.


We have to show legislators the human side of this issue, too, and force them to base their own decisions and policies off of that emotion...

An excerpt from Emory University Professor of Psychology Drew Westen's book The Political Brain: The Role of Emotion in Deciding the Fate of the Nation.
