Study: Conservatives More Honest Than Liberals

That's like saying the sun rises in the east. It's so obvious I didn't think anyone needed a study to prove it but here it is.

Is it OK to cheat on your taxes? A total of 57 percent of those who described themselves as “very liberal” said yes in response to the World Values Survey, compared with only 20 percent of those who are “very conservative.” When Pew Research asked whether it was “morally wrong” to cheat Uncle Sam, 86 percent of conservatives agreed, compared with only 68 percent of liberals.

Ponder this scenario, offered by the National Cultural Values Survey: “You lose your job. Your friend’s company is looking for someone to do temporary work. They are willing to pay the person in cash to avoid taxes and allow the person to still collect unemployment. What would you do?”

Almost half, or 49 percent, of self-described progressives would go along with the scheme, but only 21 percent of conservatives said they would.

When the World Values Survey asked a similar question, the results were largely the same: Those who were very liberal were much more likely to say it was all right to get welfare benefits you didn’t deserve

It goes on and on. We've always known that liberals are the lowest form of human we have proof.

Interesting. Don't believe this article was written by a liberal. Do believe this article was written by a conservative.

I know this article was writen by a conservative and he has a good point. Never heard a liberal write an article such as this, his would probably be titled "Liberals are more honest than Conservatives. It is very interesting.
