Not sure when it became a dispopular thing to have a liberal attitude

It became "dispopular" when people started realizing how much it's fuking things up for our country.

but location: Alberta, Canada

It's ok if you don't understand.

It's the opposite, actually. The "happiest" cities in the US are mostly conservative.

Such as?

Care to explain?

Pro-choice: Why should it be your right to tell another man and woman what to do with their body.

Gay marriage: Has absolutely zero effect on your life.

Personally I am more liberal on social views and conservative on fiscal policies. Its just that the right tends to be more judgmental and want to control how other people live when it has no effect on them.

No. I don't think happiness comes from political orientation though.

Depends on what type of liberal you're talking about. Coming from somebody who can be very liberal (more classic liberal, not social justice retard) when it comes to social issues, at least, modern social justice liberals are probably drowning in their own smug state of 'enlightenment' rather than being genuinely happy, because it always comes across that they have a beef with some form of 'inequality'.

i've read countless studies on this, which were conducted by top universities of #merica, and i can confirm that liberals are on average happier than their counterparts.

On the surface, I'd imagine that conservatives are more likely to say they're happy (when they actually aren't).

LOL, 2 issues. Both of which are about as minor as issues can be. But pretty much the only two issues modern liberals can speak about as those are the only 2 issues which garner popular support for their agenda.

The vast majority of modern liberal liberal policy is exactly the opposite of 'liberal". The entire economic platform is populist, pro centralized power, pro-force, anti growth, anti individual freedom. Modern liberals are collectivists, not individualists.

So really, the idea that American conservatives are more controlling is quite a delusion. anarcho capitalists could make that claim, so could most libertarians. Modern liberals cannot, that would be the ultimate hypocrisy

liberal is such a wishy-washy term it's hard to give you an exact answer, are conservatives happier than democrats? 9 times out of 10 yes probably

I always lol hard when people's identities are defined by their political ideologies, which are really just ways for the system to stay in power and make people think you have true freedom. Stop making it black and white and calling yourself conservative or liberal. it really reflects poorly on your intelligence. life is not black and white. it's all shades of grey and if you look at it through politically tinted glasses you'll never see things for the way they are. i'm pro-choice and pro-homosexuality, but i'm also pro gun ownership and against overt political correctness. it's possible to have viewpoints that fall in both ideologies. You're a human being with choices, not a tick mark in a ballot box

good points in here.....anybody that puts a label on themselves and thinks inside a box like that is just confused. Don't care how much money they make...they do not get it.

Same. But they're not so much liberals as they are whiny college kids living in their parents' basements complaining how the world doesn't cater to them. All while being better off than most other people I know.

The more someone self identifies as a liberal, conservative, or libertarian, the more likely they are to be permanently outraged and unhappy.

People who dont define themselves in a particular bucket and just consider each issue on its merit are more likely to be happy.

Hard libs are always looking for any sign of injustice to cry over and hard conservatives burst blood vessels every time Michelle Obama buys a new pair of shoes.

voice of reason.

Whenever people self-identify with a specific category, anything that falls outside that category rustles their jimmies. Also, people who self identify with a category tend to seek out things that don't fit their personal views, get mad, lash out (kindof gives them a sense of purpose, but it's complete phaggotry).
